Hey Dave,
I would just buy yours, but the soft top that has been donated and is waiting for my truck down at Brewie's already has a header bar with it. I would just need to borrow a header bar in the meantime so the truck isn't 100% topless when I DRIVE THAT BEAST TO CONCLAVE!!! WOOHOOOO!!!

P.S. clear out your inbox a little bit. I couldn't PM you because it's full.....

How's that for pessimism?

Stupid Question

After reviewing the punch list, I have to ask, have swivel ball reservoirs received their dose of swivel ball lube? Didn't see on list and didn't see it done. Hate to see those flawless new swivel balls marred!

Not put in, but sitting by the swivels. It's on the lube guys list. I am going to vote for oil on the maiden trip though, and grease later

Thanks.

Bugger......I go to Costco so I can feed you bitches next weekend and Galpin is running around testing articulation!!!! What was the carby issue? Was it the spring? Did the starter fix itself too?

Looks like Kent is rolling to Conclave

Throttle cable needed loosening. Haven't diagnosed the starter issue yet...

Kent is definitely rolling to Conclave.

^THIS...

Charles is really driving this entire thing, and without him at the helm this would have run aground! Seriously, it's amazing that everything got fired up yesterday, and run for a successful test drive...no way it would have happened without Galpin - the rest of us are just his lackeys (in a good way)!

Personally, I was a bit skeptical we'd get to the point of firing this beast up yesterday, let alone take it for a spin. Charles guided the team skillfully. Yesterday was a take no prisoners sort of day, with much getting accomplished. Still a couple "little things" to get done, but this was a culmination of much teamwork. Kent, I know this truck will mean a lot to you for years to come. It's a product of lotsa luv from the community. Enjoy!
