Welcome to the Stovebolt collective Adam!
What a fantastic birthday surprise. Looking forward to seeing more of your truck and trying to help in your journey.
Suggest you ask your questions in the closest on-topic forum you can see in The Shop Area
forums so folks can focus on giving you the best advice and knowledge we can share.
On a "Side Lots" note, you might want to go introduce yourself and your truck in The Southern Bolters
forum as you are right in their neck of the woods. There are also some upcoming significant events in that region you may be interested in knowing about.
Glad you joined up.
