I am planning on checking wheel bearings, tire pressure, lights, etc...
Just wanted to introduce myself and I look forward to this new adventure.
I live in Allen.
I am in the middle (well some where, I am bewtween the start and the finish, as middle implies close to half done) of a restore of a 1950
I would be glad to provide what little knowledge I have gained in the process.
As for tires, if you buy new ones, you may end up not using them depending on the rims and wheels you end up using. You will see on many old restores, axles, wheels, rims and tires are replaced.
