Happy Mother's Day
Here we are in '63. I wish I had that car! Although she's a nurse, Mom has always been very good at feeding my engineering and science side. We have done a lot of projects together.
Duane got the steering linkage done and Mark painted the steering column. Mark has also been working on the contactor box and it's looking good.
Next week the bed should be going back on along with the tilt mechanism and we'll start wiring.
Ruth and I had a nice meeting with Matt Meiller on Friday. He runs a company in Milwaukee area called Peak Gain that specializes in antenna and RF design. They seem pretty pumped to help us get the truck talking to the cloud and reporting to the wide wide world.
The last two pictures show all of the batteries save two in place. We had one bad battery and room for one extra, so that will make 101 total. You can also see Peter's handy work. Just on the other side of the batteries is the pump/reservoir assembly for the cooling system.
