I wanted these because I have been noticing that I am getting a good bit of tar and other matter on the lower parts of the car behind the wheels. I think because it is white that I notice it more than I have on other cars. Plus I wanted to protect the paint from scratches and nicks.
I made a video time lapse of the install on the drivers side of the vehicle. It was the first side I did so it took a little time to understand and follow the directions. The vide is approx 1 min in length so it is a quick watch. It is below.
How the video was created
I used a GoPro Hero 8 on a time lapse mode to make the video shorter, who would want to watch a long video of someone walking around the garage? I set the GoPro up on a platypod on a shelf at the back of the garage. I mounted the GoPro to the platypod on a ball head and some other mounts. I love how compact the platypod is and also how stable they are. I could have used a tripod but it would have taken up more room in the garage and I would have had to avoid it while I was walking around.
In September when a I was in Colorado with a group of guys to some Off-Road Trails e decided to take a side trip to the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. We had tickets for the Cascade Canyon Excursion. This takes you up the valley to an intersecting canyon that is breathtaking. The views on the train and at Cascade Canyon are something you have to see. Of course I took the camera and while on the train I took some video. I have some of my favorite photos below and a video on YouTube I out together.
Video from a trip to Ouray in Sept 2021. This is Poughkeepsie Gulch. This is one of the most technically challenging trail in the area. The main reason is for what is called “The Wall”. You can see me going up the wall in the video. Enjoy!
Video from a trip to Ouray in Sept 2021. This is Imogene Pass. One of the most iconic off-road trails in the world. This trail connects Telluride with Ouray. It is not a difficult trail, but the scenery is outstanding! Enjoy!
Video from a trip to Ouray in Sept 2021. This is Black Bear Pass. One of the most iconic off-road trails in the world. This trail is rated as difficult, primarily due to the steep drop offs on the switchbacks. I would not suggest anyone without experience off road to attempt this trail. This is a long video as I have included all of the video footage from the top of the switchbacks all the way into Telluride. If you only watch a portion I suggest that you stick around about 10 min until the descent into Telluride begins. A full set of photos is in this Gallery on my Photography Website. Enjoy!
Have you heard of the “Million Dollar Highway”? It is US 550 between Silverton, Durango and Ouray (Colorado). This stretch of of road is not very long but it will take you a while to traverse it as it winds through the mountains with stretches having speed limits of 25 MPH. There are steep drop offs and curves. The drop offs are in the hundreds to thousands of feet, but there is no guardrail. You have to be very careful driving this road.
I strung together several clips when driving north on the way into Ouray.
I had some spare/free time today and I was able to stop by Liberty Park (Summit County Metroparks) in Twinsburg. I went to the Ledges Trail near the Nature Center. There is still some fall color left but we are slightly past peak colors here in northeast Ohio. Being a warm November day the park was crowded! My photos are below! Enjoy!
In September a group of guys and myself traveled from Ohio to Ouray, Colorado to go off-road in the San Juan Mountains. We did a number of the high mountain passes. Engineer Pass was the firs one we did. I took photos and videos. Below you can find some of my favorite videos and a link to a YouTube Video I made. Enjoy!
