The Sunday brunch buffet offers a fairly broad number of options, at a reasonable price, and the space is readily configurable for the expansion and/or contraction of inmate numbers.

Whatever, whoever, whenever, Piffle and I will be there around 11-ish ( barring any as-yet-unanticipated contingencies), and we hope to run into some other inmates ...
Mrs Strommergirl is fast asleep, will talk to her tomorrow about the brunch and hope to attend! Thanks for thinking bout us!

It's been a long time since I had a whiff of Belray Oil in my Suzuki RM 125.

Mel, these guys are located in the same building that Griffin Trikes used to be. They do nice work for a decent price. Their spray on bedliner is probably a little better actually than Rhino Liner (which apparently cures a bit too fast). That's the way I'd go - get them to spray on a thin semi-smooth gloss red. If you want to mix it up a bit, get your fairing and side panels done in black - that'd look sharp IMO. I got my tank & sidepanels Rhino Lined (the competition) for $100 - maybe they'll do everything for you for that price? If you want best price - bring everything in fully prepped - clean and sanded.

http://www.extremecoatings.ca/ They're in Oak Bluff, SW corner off the perimeter on the outskirts of the city. Ken is the boss there.

Thanks GWN. Do they do stuff besides bed liner type things? I want a gloss finish...

They do normal autobody work there too, so they'll be able to set you up with whatever you want. When you see how smooth they can spray bedliner, you may change your mind (about using it). They can spray theirs out pretty smooth and glossy... because it takes a little longer to cure than Rhino Lining. My finish is rough - theirs doesn't have to be. Mel, lot to be said for a tough coating like that.
