Suspension Garage Day?!?!?!
« on: January 21, 2003, 04:29:48 PM »
I have

springs, that I would love installed, and am hoping we could do a garage day in February.  Maybe the 8th?  I would host, but with all the workout

equipment in the garage, not a lot of work room.  Let me know what people think.

Thanks

Mike...I'm In.  I am off that day so I

am available :) .  We may want to do it somewhere else besides your house.  We would need a power air compressor.  I have the spring

compressors that we can use, and the air wrenches...just don't have an air compressor big enough to handle it all.

I know Winston and Chas have some that would work...maybe they can sponsor or something like that.

I knew you would be the first to

reply.  :D  I purposely picked that date since I knew you would be available!  I would also like to get the ChasBar, but not sure if I am allowed to

spend the money right now...

Hey Mike,

I've been wondering when you were gonna get those springs on your car.  If I don't get my rear sway bar on before this garage day I might do so

on that day.  Either way I'll try and show up and lend a hand.

Thank God. I cannot wait for Mike to

lower his car. *wink wink*

Fortunately for me I will be in Mexico playing at the beach, but I will be with you guys in spirit. Hope Wendy can keep you guys in line while I'm

gone. ;)

Mike,

I should be able to help you out with that.  I have everything but the spring compressor and I plan on getting that soon.

It's pretty much a 4-5 hour job though, but maybe if we work together we can get it done in 3-4...

My spring compressors are always

available to anyone who needs them.  So if you do't have them yet Winston, I will be happy to bring mine.  After we get Mike done...I think the

only other person left is Wendy....but after her LTB issue...that may not be a good idea :wink:

Mike,
Forgot to mention ealier, but like Jon said in the first reply, get the air compressor situation figured out.  If you're not gonna buy one, see if you

can borrow one or have this garage day at someone's house who has one.  I think this includes Jay, Chas and Winston.  Andrew has one that

might fit in a trunk or back seat so maybe you could borrow that from him?
With Jon's strut compressors and air tools we should have you covered for anything else you need.

Hey now, We fixed that little problem Wendy had. And now it's better. Tighter to the body, like Lycra bike shorts, errr something like that. OK now

I've done it. Decending into the depths of viledome...

You all can borrow my air

compressor. It does fit in the Passat sedans, just not in the trunk. You'll need to fold the rear seats down and place it on top of them. I prefer not

hosting the garage day because my driveway is as narrow as they come. Let me know.

Winston you rock!  OK, so from what

I can gather from this thread, that I have somehow forgotten to check, is Saturday, February 8th at Winston's house a garage day.  Mainly to

install my springs, but we might be able to do more, like a ChasBar!  If I do the ChasBar, I will have to be a little more careful since that will be a

little lower than on anyone else's car.  Who all is coming other than myself, and Jon, and obviously Winston?

Thanks Mike!

Bring your cameras and we can do some picture taking too once we have everybody set up with the LTB and your new springs!

huh? What kind of springs are you putting on there, the extra short Civic Vato version? You're probably going to be sitting the same as me and

jon.. and not as low as Winston. The bar will be fine...

I am just cutting my current springs

in half, that should be all cool!

I am actually putting on the NeuSpeed Sport Springs.  But since I am a TIP, my bar will be haning about 1/4" lower than yours...

Damn, it was Jon, I didn't look at

the name, just the little picture, I thought it was Winston, so I was being nice.

Shut up Jon, you don't have stock wheels! You are not allowed to comment on this anymore. :)

Hey Mike, I have everything we need

except the spring compressors...

As long as Jon comes and brings those or we get it from him if he doesn't, then we are good to go...

Chas -

Do you think you could have a LTB for MY 2000 1.8t 5sp that day as well? :)

Chas have you drilled a 4motion bar yet?  If you need Jerry's car again, we could stop by again next week.  Jay, the Jetta has a frame brace built in already, so there is no beneift, unless you are racing on a track, but spirited driving will see little to no benefit....

so....what time is this all starting.  I know we will be at Winston's house, but what time should we get going?  I suggest around 10am.  Any other suggestions?

I guess it depends on when Winston will be waking up.  Winston chime on in and let us know when to terrorize the neighborhood.
