The list is gettin' shorter. Got the tires @ the shop getting mine & Jeff's switched. His are balled & I have a set of Hoosier radials not being used. Trans has enough fluid in 'er to move the caah, but we haven't yet. Air shifter is dialed in. Neutral switch & trans brake switch work. Jeff has to make a little extra clearance in the tunnel for the torque arm & then reset the pinion angle. Got the long wheel studs in the front . Still have to make a bracket for the trans filler tube. I was about to cut the NO2 bracket on the CNC & the Fuse box I use for a master switch decided to die. So, Jeff has to wire up another one in the morning so we can cut the bracket. I have 2 Semi Tractors to letter tomorrow, the ones that take 1/2 day each to do, so if Jeff has a goot'a day of working on the caah we should be able to take it out for a test run tomorrow night. Wednesday will be for stripping the trailer down & most likely lettering some construction equipment, getting the caah & truck cleaned up a little & loaded for Thursday.

Startin' to get a little tired BP.

Jeff's caah is pretty much ready for a test run down the road to get the trans up to temp, recheck fluid level & then take it out to see if it all works. Jeff has to service the NO2 stuff & put it all back together after we relocated the solenoids. I 'hink he has one braided fuel line that needs to be replaced or stretched. :lol: :lol: :lol:
Then print the banners for DLN's 7, Print some stuff for Rapid, clear all the racks off the trailer & set it up for caah haulin'.

Gotta' air up the slicks, fill the nitrous bottles, (one isn't here yet),

give the truck a quick clean up, gas up & pack it for the trip.

Got a couple small sign job I have to get done before we leave.


Oh, Oh, & I got a replay XD1080 in the mail today. Hope to send it down the track a few times this weekend.
