You are only the second person I've seen use that term...the other is an Alfa Romeo guy I know!

Hydros are pretty simple and pretty easy to update to a dual system without hydro,

Maybe a seminar on "Rust Repair Best Practices"
Probably deal with it a lot more in Michigan, but always curious on techniques for Cleaning up rust and Proper Metal Preparation/Neutralization.
What tools and products work best? What primer and paint do you use?

Sounds like Scott and Oldie will be talking about the hydrovac brake system.

Tom
Rust repair can be mixed in with the truck evaluation.
We will have a white dry erase board and will post a schedule for the info sharing chats/demos.

Keep the ideas coming. We are all there to look, learn and have fun!

With Don's permission, I plan to put out parts that are no longer useful to me from 1954. The only thing is when I look back I wish I had known about the fact someone else could have used the parts that I threw away. I won't list them but that they were good serviceable items. Yes, I will bring some things that some will ask why but my attitude is just don't bother with them. Thanks all.

You don't need my permission to bring something.
As long as I don't have to haul anything off.
Do you want to have a short speech about what you bring?
We can put you on the agenda. dance

I think Ron has a good idea. Set up a table or 2 with free items. Anyone can bring parts that might be useful that we would throw away or don't want to store them any longer.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.
