Over the weekend I did some light painting of my RAV4. It’s not my best work, as I normally use a different flashlight for this, but it’s not bad. I forgot to do a shot with the headlights, fog lights, and emergency lights on. Guess I’ll do it on the next shoot.

Why not try to accentuate it’s “stormtrooper-like” features? Don’t get me wrong, I like it, I just thought you asked for more ideas 👍

I’ll try that next time. The lights I used were not focused at all, I was trying something new, and I didn’t have a whole lot of time to shoot - bourbon and a campfire awaited me ;)

Nice! I’ve been dying to do some night shots with the RAV4. I mainly do landscapes and night sky. So I have to give it a try someday.

Did that include the install? If so, that's not bad price at all!
No install. It’s with a 15% discount if you sign up with them on their website.

Install was very simple.

Took my RAV4 and trailer out for the first camping trip of the season this week. All the upgrades to the car and the trailer done during the COVID-19 winter lock down worked great.
Is that a small tent trailer or just a cargo trailer?

It is a 45+ year old Colemon utility trailer that originally had a fiberglass bubble cover which bit the dust a long time ago.

The trailer got a complete make over this past winter upgrading from 8" to 12" wheels/tires with new fenders; added the trailer jack with wheel, bike racks and paint scheme to match the RAV4. All the camping gear fits neatly inside, keeping the interior of the car uncluttered.

Back in the late 70s we made a family cross country trip ( west to north east) with a 8 foot camper on my dad's pickup and a tent trailer in tow. I believe it was a Coleman as well that my dad bought used. The cover was shot so my mom made a replacement out of a brand new canvas tarp. This became an issue when the fold out boards that made up the front and back of the tent were bowed downward when closed. The new tarp worked fine until it rained. We were at a rest stop eating lunch in the camper and it started to rain real hard. Water was accumulating in the dip on top of the trailer, then all of a sudden, my dad looks out the camper window and says an explicative and then where did all of that water go. Yep, the tarp wasn't water proofed well enough and the water went right in and soaked the tent and inside the box of the trailer. I remember that smell of an old wet tent to this day. Glorious times.

Installed my Northwoods Performance aluminum front skid plate today. I didn't have anyone to help hold it while I bolted it on, and the skid is a bit heavy. So I used my floor jack to move it into place and hold it up. Worked perfectly.

Memorial day project, Caliper covers. Been looking for 6 months and these were my favorite but the seller says they don't fit the Hybrid. So I did what all responsible Rav4 owners do and ordered them anyway. Obviously they fit. Cheaper than any of the others that are metal and I like the mounting system the best. Took a month to ship though.
