Had this over at the last forum I lived on and it was pretty cool.
Couldn't find one here.
Just post up what you did to your trix today. Upgrades, maintenance... Etc. Try to add pictures

I'll start.
I grabbed some carpet to do the back deck when the seats are down. 15 bucks at hone depot, can't beat that.
I'll post pictures later on.

waiting for my front brakes to show up and then i'll swap all 4 corners and do a proper job

Noticed some paint chipping on the edges of my diy fairing, cried a little, then topped up my coolant. Contemplated washing, but all weekend is going to be messy wet anyways.
