I colored the inside of my jeep  
So I think I'm caught up on almost all my youtube videos now. Here are the updates on my jeep. The interior color update is the one I'm very proud of.


And the interior blue color.


It took me a long time to do the trim. A few days because I didn't have the right tools to remove some of the parts. I also forgot about the clear coat which was very important. It looked better without it but felt sticky and delicate. With the clear coat I'm not afraid to touch it.

Bullet has been extremely friendly lately. I'm loving my sweet pet budgie. I don't know what happened to the attitude she used to have. It's still there but she is a middle aged budgie now. She'll be five in Sept. I can't believe that. Does not feel like five years. She has been flying more which is also very strange for me as she never flew around much. But it's good exercise for her. She was too fat before. Today she gave me a kiss. A real one. She reached over to my cheek and made the "chip" sound of a kiss. I was so happy and kissed her back. She gets very hyper when she sees me and runs back and forth in her cage til I let her out.

Today is another monthly anniversary for us. 22 years 3 months. I hope Chris can get out early today so we can do stuff. His TV is finally arriving today so I'm kind of waiting around for that. He's so excited. I know he's been very excited as I was like that too. Oh I don't want to post too many videos in one post so I'll make another one after this for my other major update and why I could relate to him. Since most of my jeep projects are done I hope to work on the door art today. I hope I can make some good progress. It would be nice to finish one already. I'm looking at my own post in the preview. Looks like youtube codes the embed now to add a link so not necessary that I do it manually I guess?

I've already watched and commented on those videos. I love the turquoise color you made your Jeep trim.

I call it kisses when my budgies preen my face, which they both do. Izzy makes this big smooch noise when he's happy to get attention from me. He got in my face and wolf whistled this morning. Bullet is being so sweet now. It's hard for me to believe she will be five in September.

I post these for those not on youtube that haven't seen them yet. I'm glad you like the new color. I think it is so much better than the boring grey it had.

Aw that's sweet they preen you. And singing to you is always nice too. I hope her personality won't change too much. I love my feisty budgie but it's nice to have this sweet one too. I know I remember when she hatched. I can't believe she will be five.

The Fear This decal worked out well! Good on Chris for helping you.

People in the know will see the dinosaur there and have a good chuckle.

Those protectors will stop the dents, so good you got those!

I'm so very glad Bullet has finally lost her attitude and is becoming such a good pet. She is also looking good! (I saw your recent photo of her.)

Your trim job is beautiful. A lot of fiddly work there. I say you 'Floridaised' your Jeep :P I can see you worked into the night, too! It looks like you used a head lamp. Those are so handy, aren't they?

I noticed your background music in all your videos, btw. Very nicely done. Is that Chris playing in one?

Yeah when I first saw how dark it was I thought it was never going to work. I'm glad it did in the end and yes Chris is great helping me out.
There are few in the know but those that get it should like it.
I've seen pics of some pretty bad mirror dents so I'm glad I found out you could do this to protect the sides.
I love her attitude. But I'm glad she's being cute and sweet now too. Though I hope her fighting days aren't over.
Thanks. Yes I had to wait for each coat of paint and clear coat to dry and with missing tools it did go on into the night. Actually it was a little lamp Chris held up behind me. It was helpful. But yes I do want to get a headlamp. I hear they are very good.
Thanks glad you liked it. I picked one of those because it does sound like Chris playing. It wasn't him though. Hopefully he can record some new background songs for me sometime.

Well, Chris was very good to hold the torch for you like that.

I'm sure Chris could play like that and the thing about Chris is that his are original! So, it would be good if you could put a few of his tracks on at some time in the future. These things take time, though, I know!

I love how Chris is so supportive of you. Star husband!

Once again, I'll just repeat how good your backing tracks were. They were not intrusive, but fitted the video. There's few people who can do that!

Thanks. I'm careful picking my volumes. The music can't be louder than the narration. You have to be able to hear it but only just enough. But not total silence that is boring.
kabuldurkabuldur on May 9th, 2018 12:07 pm (UTC)
Yes, the music must not be louder than the words. Exactly as you say it, only just loud enough to hear. You are right when you say you are a good director!

Aw, I'm glad for the update on Bullet. I couldn't remember how she was doing and didn't want to ask. Paullie (almost 20 years passed on) mellowed out too once he was 3 or 4.

Man, I remember when Bud and I had been dating for three months and he said it was just a drop in a bucket compared to the rest of our lives. 22 years and 3 months is a good long time to be together :-)

Aw thanks for thinking of Bullet. You can always ask me about my birdys. Most birds mellow out with age. My family had an Amazon that was super aggressive but made it into his 40s. WAs around as a pet before I was born. But by that age he was friendly and all the fight was gone from him. Kids could play with him which was crazy.

I'm glad you and Bud are doing great too. Each month is a milestone for sure. They go by fast but still hard to believe because it does not feel like it. Chris and I were having the conversation about not being surprised but being surprised that it does not seem like two decades.
