Our new Trooper (aka. "The Duck") was worked on today after Papa's arrival home after training in Anniston, Alabama. In addition to washing and waxing "The Duck" we greased door hinges and started cleaning the engine up. We also cut a limb that was overhanging where we park the duck so maintenance on it will be slightly easier with less branches, leaves, etc. falling on it. Next we will be "armoralling," vacuuming, installing a new battery, completing the cleaning of the engine, and analyzing and fixing any problems we find.
As a side note, the fire is still running and has passed the 120 hour mark!
