Setting the Date

After reaching out to all the key figures over the weekend and receiving a unanimous favorable response, we have a date for the first drive. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, this truck will go down the road under its own power for the first time since 1984 on Saturday, May 30th. I wanted to set a date well ahead of time, since we'll have family and friends coming from near and far to be here.

Just a few things to wrap up in the meantime:

Rear brakes

Tail lights

New battery

A trailer trip to Steve's outdoor lift, to run the new brake lines and install the new master cylinder

Shift linkage repair (to keep it from jamming)

Registration and insurance

Really looking forward to what will be a huge day for this old boy, as well as sharing it here through pictures and video. Thanks to all for coming along for the ride!
