ETA for delivery, as of now, is Saturday between 12 & 3. It's weird, people ask if I'm excited (I guess I don't show it very well) and while there's no doubt I am, it's still a little surreal for me....been 12.5yrs since I discovered the GTM (and later SLC, of course) and started saving. Saturday it'll become a reality and I have a feeling after transport leaves, and after my first spin around the neighborhood, I'll probably need to grab a roll of Scott brand shop towels to wipe up the drool while I sit and admire Allan's work.
I have also setup initial inspection with the state police to get the registration process started (hence #1 on the list). He'll come out to the house Wednesday at 1pm. I hope this is somewhat painless, other than the drive to Baton Rouge DMV to give them paperwork. Also hope I only have to make 1 trip there, was told to expect 2 trips because trooper told me they reject it first time because they're ignorant of what's actually needed.
Figured I'd go ahead and share my "to do list" that I've come up with over past month or so.
