Had a couple of hours this afternoon, thought about going for a ride, but couldn't drag myself to ride to Wendell and look for tennis courts.

Never tried a kit - you have to sand off any coating, and get to a uniform base, then start to polish.

Best luck with a 600 grit, then 800, then 1200, then 1600 (or brasso - which is about the same abrasive)... then start with the lexan polish products.... heavy, medium then light..... secret is to get a uniform haze at each step. Doesn't take much, and doesn't remove that much material.... most of these crappy light assemblies have a UV coating that fails... sand that off first, and then polish away!

if you can remove the assemblies, it really helps.

any spray on, wipe on coating won't do nearly as good, so I wouldn't bother.

There's a "Racket Club" in Clayton, but nothing called that in Wendell. Found a good number of tennis courts in Wendell, but nothing that looks right.

Can I buy a vowel?

It's the public courts at the park. Not a racket club my bad. I was referring to this addiction game of tag.

Got about halfway there and turned around due to a complete lack of motivation.

Nah. Had everything to do with the way the day fell apart and not a thing to do with the tag location. I want my money back on this particular Saturday. Just finished fixing a washing machine. For someone else. In Danville, VA. On my dime...

According to WRAL, low of 25 overnight, warming up to a balmy 39 by 4pm tomorrow afternoon.


Edit: 9:22 and I'm standing on the deck thinking this whole "go for a ride this morning" idea is really stupid...

Yep.
Got to get that first cold day out of the way. Just having a hard time mustering up the desire to do it right now.
