I've been away for awhile. Just got back from Vegas where I was for a couple of weeks doing my part to stimulate the economy (in particular the Mandalay bay Texas hold em' and the MGM Grand black jack tables
We saw a few shows (Chris Angel, Steve Wyrick and the Phantom of the opera - I liked Steve's show the best but the Phantom's set and production is unreal) and I took a day off to fly down to the canyon take an aerial tour of the strip which was cool.
Here's a shot of me thinking about upgrading my titan to something with rotors!
Speaking of which here are a couple of day time shots which show the truck a lot better as well.
I'm going to be swapping out the window deflectors shown for the in channel ones next week for a cleaner look and then I'll order some new rims this spring and I'm all done with the truck. (just had a new winter text starter put in before heading to Vegas that I'll update to Lojack GPS technology once it's available as well).
Anyway... on to the reason for the post - the update. I've had the painters here all weekend as it's been to darn cold to do much else anyways. Yesterday they did most of the upstairs and today they started into the redo of the HT room on the lower level.
First we had to pull all the panels down and do some prep work.
This was the problem area - lots of prep work here.
Here we are getting started.
My contractor Corey is finishing up the install on the new UPS box he's built for the purpose of holding my UPS for the PJ all finished up.
Here is the box painted ready for the UPS to go in once we've finished up the room and waited for everything to dry.
These two photos do a good job of showing the color change and how much darker I'm going with the new paint compared to the lighter Grey of the old paint job. I'll have the speakers done in the same color to blend in rather then stand out this time around.
About 60% done at this point. We are all going to be back at it tomorrow to finish up by the end of the night just have some final painting around the screen wall and the AV rack area and trim before I work on getting that door area finally finished up.
Should have some final shots by the weekend once we get everything back installed and ready for movies again
I was just about to order a new JVC this week as well but now with the new LED's out I'm back on the fence.... I may just order another bulb for the 333 and see what happens over the next 6 to 12 months.... decisions, decisions...
More as it happens
