Hey Y'all... catch you up on the '47 Chief - Named: "Ol' Blue" - - - I happened to find a block of time in Bill's schedule where... Low-And-Behold... he didn't have a "Project-Bike" saddled up on his Bike-Lift... I'm there like: "Whoooah!" - asking Bill how he felt about giving me a hand getting Ol' Blue started up? - He's like: "Bring her on Bro'!"

So, last weekend - July 14... I show up late (it seems Bill's an "Early riser" and my early morning gastro-intestinal Fireworks kind of slowed me down a bit... Anyway, we sorted out a whole lot of roadblocks, created (what I hope to be my Final) "Parts Order List" and scheduled this weekend as the NextBestStep!

So I shows up Saturday morning at 7:14 - parts in hand and we get to work... Now let me catch you all up on something here. We all know Bill is a great guy... multi-talented, hard worker, Fantastic Work-Shop! - - - but what was also revealed is that Bill's a really patient, relaxed and skilled "Teacher" - I mean, I learned So-Much as we both evaluated, tested, tweaked and crafted solution after solution to staging this '47 to get Fired-Up! - Round about 1:45 Bill points out that he's Out-Of-Steam... Off I go to head back to Sterling, gather a few more items and rest up myself.

Come Sunday Morning and I'm back at BILL'S SHOP bright and early, we both Dig-In, suffering the Unrelenting "Dash-Panel-Items" struggle... Need I say more? Anyway, rounding about the 11:00 hour, - Fuel in tank, I give her a few "FULL CHOKE" Primer Kicks... Choke-Off... Bill yells: "Contact" - I switch her On...
