Title: Can someone with tools host a Garage day?? Oct. 2?
Post by: coveredbytheblood on September 22, 2004, 08:26:17 AM
The time that we all, or at least I have been waiting for is finally here.  I will be needing to install coilovers, rotors, pads, rear valance, exhaust..  I think that is about all. 8O  So if somone who has a house and tools would let me and some fellow RMCB5 ers come chill and change my car into a fembeast!  Please let me know.  Thanks for all the help.  8)

I think we are going to try and have a garage day sometime in late October or early November.  Stay tuned for more as we line things up.

As we discussed, I'll be there to lend whatever hand and tools I can. I would also like to lift my rear and check my spring perches to see if I can get rid of the minor clunk I aquired after the track day.

It'd be good to have you there Dave :)

I'll be out of town and won't make this one.  If you all do another one later in the month, I might go.

Sorry for the delay and if I sounded misleading.  No, I do not have all of the tools or the place (condo).  I was feeding off of what ColoradoB5 mentioned as a possible place and time.  Usually I like to lend a hand when I can.

Ok cool.  So, anyone have a house that we can chill at?  I think all that we need are some sockets, and torx screwdrivers.  Maybe a few jack stands...  Oh and some kind of clamp for the caliper piston.

I'll try to show up (I'm only free on weekends)-- I need to adjust my rear sway bar.

I'll bring some jack stands and rhino ramps.

I have a set of metric and standard open ends, sockets, several torx bits and drivers, various other things, a good sized  set of channel-locks, stands... and anything else i can think of that might help.

Well the odds are low for October 2nd because I know most of us are going to Avalon for the store opening that day...

oh yeah, Avalon!  That's right.

The following week is our detailing GTG, so we will probably be GTG'ed out for the next month or so.

Oh yeah Avalon.  I forgot.  Well, I still plan on working on my car.  Maybe I will come over there and get chipped, or something...

Or maybe I wont.  The Grand Opening has been postponed.  So who wants to work on cars???

Well I want to install my new (correctly drilled this time) lightwieght crank pulley. Problem is that I still need to get the old (wrong hole pattern) unit back to the place I got it from. So maybe in a couple weeks I'll be ready to install it. That means ripping off the front end of the car, again...

Didn't I just do that not long ago? Anyhow, I'll let you all know. If I get it back soon, I might be up for hosting. If not, I'll be sure to want to come to the late Oct. GTG.

Chas maybe you and I can get together and actually finish my fog install...I hate it. I think having you around might make it a bit more tolerable ;)
