    What was that Cushman used for originally?

    It's actually a Westcoaster & not a Cushman. It was a Post Office delivery truck in Salt Lake. I found it in a field where it has been for 10+ years.

    Oh, you're right, the garbage company here in town has a ton of Cushmans for garbage pickup assistance to the big trucks, so I just say 'Cushman' out of reflex. For having sat in a field for a decade, it looks in great condition.

    Took 3 years to get it to look this good. New tires/glass/electrical/paint etc. Surprising- new gas & battery & it started!

    I have a 1969 Harley Davidson two stroke three wheel golf cart that acts the same way, it can sit for a couple years and it still starts

    Got the new gauges installed. & my son-in-law made me a sign to hang in the garage-represents the 3 cars I currently own and the TR3 that was my first car. The white box in the middle is the mock up for a console. sign.jpg 34 gauge panel installed.jpg

    That looks interesting....

    But you didn't answer my previous question: what RPM will you be setting redline?

    Not worried about redline until I get her on the road to see how she performs.

    I see SpeedHut gauges! I got some for Midnight with the Black Friday sale. Installed them today, very happy!

    Cheers,

    Ah yes. Speedhut. Very happy with them & their service. I broke a part of the wiring harness. I even tried to pay for the part but they sent it out under warranty.
