Dash is finally going back together, and the brakes are coming along ~ rebuilt the proportioning valve, changed out the brake hoses (they were all still the originals - yikes!), and the front brake lines. Still need to bleed bleed bleed them brakes, and get the export brace installed, then install my shiny rebuilt AA carb and get it tuned and running. Hopefully by this time next month I’ll be saying that it’s back on the road, just in time for the WCCC open house (July 13-14th). I think next winter I will plan things a little differently >.<
