I tried to install the brake master but realized the bracket has to be removed and installed on the master before it can be installed. In the process, I chipped the paint in two places...dang! At least I only have to be mad at myself :-/. Now that is over with, I decided to do more to protect the vulnerable places, with the trim tape.
I tried installing the gaiters but they were too stiff because it was so cold in the garage. I tried laying them on the radiator to soften, but by the time I got them out to the garage they had stiffened to the point it was still too hard to install them. I'm going to have to think of another approach.
I had to spend the rest of the day shoveling the snow off the roof (>2ft of heavy wet snow) and clear the driveway again...I'm beat.
Chipped the paint :(
Master is in and protective layer of tape installed
Red to figure a way to get the gaiters on without having to wait for summer to do it
