GoPro 4 Silver time lapse..

I tried the video time lapse feature of the GoPro 4 Silver. For starters I used the 0.5 second increment to give me more frames to work with if needed. The video was taken from Handlery Hotel located in the Union Square area San Francisco. Oddly enough the I shot this from the 6th floor, room “666”.

It took me awhile to figure out how to get the video play at a “faster” rate. I used GoPro Studio to produce the raw video and Final Cut X to add music by Yuck Nasty and lower 3rd credits.

Porsche 986 Boxster @#$!%!#$!! overspray!!

I’ve had some disappointing moments with Beater Boxster’s paint job project. One of the high items of my “piss me off, really?” moments was scraping the damn overspray off my windshield and side windows. It was so bad I could barely see through it when I was driving towards the sun.

I tried the WD-40, paint thinner, cleaner route and none of that stuff really made a difference. I finally got a tip from a YouTube video that showed a guy removing overspray from glass using a wide razor blade. It turns out I had one of these in my tool box so I was in luck and could try it out right away. It took a while but I got the overspray off.

All the plastic and masking protection was a precaution when I was handling the different chemicals that didn’t even work.

Still not back from paint…

It’s been over two weeks since my Porsche 986 Boxster has been at the paint shop. It has been out twice so far and returned for unsatisfactory work. The first time was for lack of “buff and cut” work and the most recent 2nd time due to poor quality work with particles and paint runs.

This will be the third time it’s going back in for re-work.

Beater Boxster in for Paint & Bodywork..

Took in the Beater Boxster for some bodywork and a paint job. It will be interesting to see if they can get this hole in the rear bumper fixed. A constant eye sore for me. The front of the car looked as if the previous owner drove directly behind a gravel truck for hundreds of miles. The top of the roof had a lot of paint damage too along with the sides.

As a matter of fact the whole car had scratches and dents not just one particular area.IMG_3538
