I suppose i can bring some detailing and polishing stuff to the dunes. Just need a hose to wash it with. Water should be on the site.
i have my auto glym and buffing wheel i can bring along. i want to clear 3m the top of the bedsides, where the bed rails used to be. my tonneau will destroy the paint if i dont.

It's not even that.. Just spending all the money than just going to the dunes at it. Think looking at the paint clean for a week would be nice haha..

Holy hell son, you leaving at midnight?

If so I was thinking about leaving Beloit ( last city in Wisc on I90 before entering IL) at about 730 AM. That should put me in SL at about 1230 - 1pm CST.

We could meet in Beloit if you will be there around then.

Screw the UP. It would be an extra 130 miles for me to take that route. I have never had an issue with chicago. It gives you something to see besides trees and closed down motels.

Plus the Chicago skyway gives you a good view of the shithole that is Gary Indiana

I sure don't. I've had enough axle work this week. Personally I wouldn't run a spartan in a DD.

I know you don't live in Michigan, but the assumption is you can't get one shipped to you in time, but you could have it sent to someone from Michigan going to SL.

thats my plan. im happy to send the cash down to someone if we can get it ordered. i already PM'd STX and Interceptor hoping for a reply, and spoke with two shops on route to SL.

I know i can get a lockright overnight here, and i can get a spartan up here to my by monday, but its going to cost $550. id rather find one in the US with 6% tax and no duty.
