I'll be on the road today. Mostly loaded last night. I have a bunch of overdrive parts for Robert Andrews, and a complete tranny if needed. I came up short on rollers for the sprag clutch, but I expect they'll be findable at the swap.

I want to tote some windshields home with me, so I built a transport rack. Just screwed some 2X4s to a piece of OSB, and drilled holes in them to accept 1" dowels, which I glued in place. I slipped foam pipe insulation over the dowels for padding, and added a little dense foam padding for the edge of the glasses to rest on.

I put this in the back of the Suburban, and discovered that it also works well as a means of toting Hawk fins. I posted a couple of pics here: <http://s210.photobucket.com/albums/bb222/gordintrochu/>

See you in South Bend. Travel safely, folks.

We'll be leaving home (Long Island,NY) tomorrow, June 16 and expect to be in South Bend on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing everyone and hopefully finding a couple of chrome parts for my Lark.
