DSC04560 (1024x768)Well, OK, maybe not QUITE finished, but it’s done enough to hitch up to a trailer and head out on a trip!  I brought the “Tini-Home” trailer back from winter storage Wednesday, in anticipation of tomorrows journey first to the Gilmore Car Museums Spring Dust Off, then it’s off to Gregory MI for a party with some of our TCT friends.

In typical Cool McCool’s fashion, we are heading for uncharted waters, as the truck has exactly 2 days (TWO DAYS) of driving and less than 100 miles on it.  The trailer only has to tag along, and it’s already road tested, so that part of the combo is road-ready.

It’ll be fine.

The truck had its unofficial “debut” at the Gilmore Car Museums Wednesday night cruise in this week, and was big  hit.  I’d gotten the bumper on that morning, a beautiful diamond plate storage box from Tractor Supply that fits the box like it was made for it, and bicycle carriers mounted on that, after picking it up from my buddy’s shop.  I did a quickie wash, and it looked good enough to draw crowds at the event and lots of compliments.

Tomorrow morning we’ll clean up the interior, run the duster over the exterior, fill up the tank and hit the road on its inaugural trip.

See you at the Dust Off!

      Kev, I had FlowMasters on 2 1/2 aluminized pipe, turn outs just ahead of the rear wheels, with 3″ baloney cut extensions, flipped so they match the running boards. Sounds great, and looks good too.
