90" long THULE Evolution cargo top for Thorondor

A few days ago I asked for some help finding a cargo top for the van. While I was in Austin, I picked one up via Craigslist!!! Someone had a THULE Evolution cargo top listed for $50! This is a $550 item if purchased new. 

The top rear of it had some damage to it from being driven into a low parking garage. I couldn't resist such a good deal though! I went and snatched it up and brought it back to Rockport last night. My dad and I spent this evening patching it up with a fiber glass repair kit. It seems to have worked beautifully and tomorrow it will get the waterproof test with a hose-down.  

We also finished carpeting the front of the van and painted the roof rack. Thorondor is really coming along!!! Next step is furniture and door repair!

I love the unmistakeable smell of repairing things.
