It runs and drives!

The Ute went to the GNRS not running. I just flat ran out of time prior to the show.

A couple of weeks ago, I started into wiring it, getting it running, and working out some bugs. The biggest issue was that dummy me had put the clutch disc in backwards . A real rookie mistake.

It is now running good enough and driving good enough that Brian Curtis and I took it out for a photo shoot in several different locations.

Here’s a short video…

Here’s a few of what I took. Brian is the REAL photographer and his will be much better than these. Also, my batteries died before we got to the harbor, and the venues there looked real good to my untrained eye. I’m anxious to see Brian’s pictures.

    Congrat’s on having her up and running – that’s got to be exciting! The pics look fantastic…look forward to seeing more!

    P.S. I just uncovered your comment over at GreaseGirl today…somehow it got moved to spam ?! Thanks for visiting!
