not an ideal solution

after a nice weekend in france, i’m back to switzerland driving through bad and cold weather.

the trip to france quickly showed that the temporary hood had some shortcomings:

over a centimeter too wide, loads of wind!

plexi hood lets rain and wind enter

furthermore, it’s really hard to open the hood in the first place. because of a misalignment of the hood opening mechanism and the hood itself. to open the hood i have to push down hard and pull on the hood horizontally whilst using the opening mechanism – the process looks rather violent 🙂

but…who am i to complain?

i have a hood, i can use my TWIKE.

and most important of all: maya has told me she’s already working on the replacement and she tells me it’s looking not too bad at all! *yay*!
