A family relo has a very large, fully paved, very smooth industrial area in town so this week a phone call is in order to arrange the use of that area for this Sat or Sun if the weather is fine.
First I must install the speedo back onto the temporary wooden dash so that correct mph and total distance for the trail can be measured but most importantly the drivers chair will have to be re-screwed down a little firmer and maybe even some padding added?, then I will trailer the bodiless Chev over there, fill up the fuel tank, oil all the correct points around the engine plus take a few tools and other things with me.
As I have always said, Monty will be driven quite a lot once the resto is completed, it had been my goal, although a little tentatively at times, right from the first time we turned the dusty, oily old motor over 11 months ago, fix it, use it, enjoy it.
This little "endurance run" will be fun and as silly as it sounds to most people I could easily spend the entire day over there clocking up the miles, it makes the many hours spent in the "Resto Shed" all the worth while and since with all the mechanical work now completed it will be a very good test.
I will add some photos here when the run is completed
