Wiped down the interior since the stereo upgrade/rear seat delete shenanigans caused me to sweat all over the place. Gross but I’m sure you all can relate.
Planning a good drive later.
Happy 4th to all.

Not much done on the mustang … :frown:

Again … :frown:

But the weekends away from the Mustang were well worth it for the reward that my misses got for that time … :sunglasses:

It seems to be turning into a bit of an unexpected family tradition - Never done a triathlon, never run a marathon. Ironman ? Yeah that sounds like a good idea … :facepalm: :cwl:

So proud of her :inlove:

I am beyond impressed and will now shut up about the 2.5 hr bike ride I did today. I looked close for time elapsed but assume 12+ hours which is mind boggling. Nice how they make you run slightly uphill to get to the finish line.... sadist!

Impressive!

I've biked over 112 miles once from reading a map wrong. But unless the 26.2 is meters or seconds, not even close running.

I always ask 'what were you running from' lol

Anything over 100 miles is a long, long day and the amount of food/water to get you there is amazing! My personal 'day of suffering' was a 100 miles/10000' of climbing 8 years ago, took 7 hours not counting time spent fixing 3 flats!

Found out they are keeping my car till Friday.

Their main vinyl installer came in and took one look at the job and went "Nope" and walked out. I guess the vinyl from @BigWormGraphix isn't 3M or (can't remember) so they only get one crack at installing something about "if it doesn't go on just right it's trashed".

They had to call their more experienced (and more costly) installer who came in and took a look and said he "could do it but it would take time".

It is what it is. I'd rather it be done right the first time even if it takes more time!

No additional charge to me since they quoted me. The trade-off was they could have it for 2 more days.

Also, the XPEL PPF is going to take time to cure and that won't go on until AFTER the stripes.

The good news is the first layer of ceramic was already put on rear two thirds of the car.

Is applying two (2) layers of PPF a new thing?

That is a mistake on my part. Updated my OP for this.
  • 2 layers of Ceramic.
  • 1 layer of XPEL
They are putting the PPF over the stripes and those get installed tomorrow. Today was bath day.

Yeah 112 miles on a bike is no easy feat and in the case of doing it in a triathlon, made more difficult from the swim before (energy already consumed) and the run after (energy you need to keep in the tank).

A 12 hour Ironman takes some going for an average Joe (like the misses and myself) that have jobs, other hobbies and family commitments etc - especially on a tough course, Ironman UK being one of the tougher courses on their books and it was changed this year to circa 7K of climbing.

The concern we had with my misses was getting her off the bike (10.5 hour cut off from her swim start time) and she managed that with a 8:18 bike and 35 mins spare before the cut off. She finished in 15:29 and Ironman has a 17:00 cut off.

My longest bike rides in triathlon are my Ironman (112.8 miles, 6:53 with 6k of climbing with a cost of 5495 calories) and Brutal (117.2 miles, 8:34 with 10k of climbing with a cost of 5933 calories). Both were ridden sensibly knowing the marathon was waiting for me at the end of them, particularly with Brutal as that's a trail / mountain marathon. My total calorie burn for Brutal was just under 12k ... 😲

The things we do to teach ourselves lessons and keep us 'sane' ... :giggle:

I looked at my treadmill the other day. Then I went and did something else. 😁

Got my spoiler back from the paint shop today. Woo! Need to find time to fit it; hopefully, end of this week if everything goes to plan.
:dance:
