I hit the road this morning around 9 am the weather was crap but the roads were good, I made it to S/C over 600 miles before calling it a day the old girl did a great job on the road lots of looks from people on the way, I posted a few pics...

I have a good friend in Spring Hill north of Tampa also but you're getting close to your destination then but one never knows! He has an upholstery business he recently got and a band on the side so stays busy, but available to help out if needed.

Have a great trip, sounds awesome!

Glad your trip was relatively uneventful. Too bad it took so long to get a MC though. Sure seems extra long time. No help on the coil springs from me though. I take it you took the 72 since you're talking coils on the back?

Yup I took the 72... I stopped to get gas and the pedal went down to the floor, I topped off the brake fluid and drove it another 50 miles or so and stopped in Rocky mount,NC were the MC gave out for good, It was Saturday and non of the part stores had one in stock, it was going to be Tuesday before they could get one shipped...
