Good to hear. Is it getting shipped with the toyo conversion axles? Maybe Mike will post up progress photos on the forum for us.

Well done guys! Since it has a rack, maybe a tarp over it would be a good idea too?

I would think ecr would have a few alpine bars laying around. I appreciate ecr is doing this but being it is may I really hope it is out of there before winter.

We might be able to keep it in my barn if inside storage is preferred. Need to check the height on it. It will be a very sad thing that first time I see Brads truck in person will be in Maine and he wont be with it...

OK, I am sure Ron can chime in but at this point who cares. I am sure ECR can figure that all out when it gets there. I appreciate him taking it up there but I hope this isn't delaying it.

I've got a toasty one that can be donated if needed. Not pretty but usable if needed. Just let me know.

Shit, if it works I say use that one...it'll at least get the job done to hold the ST up and they can source a "nice" one down the road.

I thought John/Phoenix said he'd be happy to keep it in his barn in Maine through the winter if need be. The snow shouldn't be an issue.

What happens in winter isn't a concern right now. It is getting it to Maine to begin with. Rain, snow we can figure out or I should say ECR will figure out. I'm sure this isn't the first truck to show up with a top not on correctly.

Besides that I can't speak for ECR but I would assume they would want to get this thing in and out just to be done with it, free up space, and to finally get it finished for the family. We still have no clue how it is or how it was put back together to be a roller in the first place.

Ron,

Is there any update? Have you taken the truck to ECR yet?

I know you got it in June. I am sure the family would like some status as to where it is.

Thanks

Excellent to know she is coming to Maine! Only wish Brad was the one bringing it... very bittersweet.

Very nice! It looks like the top is still sagging though - the Alpine bow is installed?

If there are any extra parts needed I'm sure we'll find out one way or another, but let us know.

Hopefully Mike will come back and keep us updated here instead of Facebook, so that we can all follow the progress.
