Title: Mini Garage Day, Wednesday March 31st
Post by: 03Indigo on March 25, 2004, 07:56:50 PM
I will be installing the H-sport Sway Bars on the Allroad in the morning, Greg is coming up from the springs to lend a hand.  Then Hawk is coming over in the afternoon to work on some brakes and his leaking headlight washer sprayer.  After that, we, Pat included since he will be here too, will be headed to Jim's Burger Haven (or Heaven as Pat likes to call it) for dinner.  All those interested in a Wednesday tool day, or just a burger night, let me know, I will PM you directions and numbers.

cheers

Boy you know I'd like to do the rear brakes on the Passat.  Will that take long?  If not I'd like to come by and hang for a few and do that.

No problem, we can do that while working on Hawks front brakes as well.  It won't take long at all.  Do you have all your stuff in yet?

Yep, been sittin on the pads for a few weeks now. I need to bleed the brakes still, but it's not a huge issue at this point.

I hope you can come by...if you do, can you bring your grease gun, I already have zerks in place for the sway, but might want to lube it up a touch better.

Alan, too funny.  We will miss ya.

For those that have nothing better to do on a Wednesday, like work or things like that...I will be starting on the Sway bars around 10am so that I can finish around the time Jay and Hawk show up to do their brakes.  I will need to get the Allroad done so they can get into the garage.

cheers

hey, jon.  i do have a little rash you can take a look at if you want to.  do you guys need anything else tool-wise.  i have my brake bleeder and am more than willing to bring anything else over.  If any body else cares i got a contract on my house on sunday and everything looks good.  so i will be moving to phoenix first week of may.
Title: Mini Garage Day, Wednesday March 31st
Post by: 03Indigo on March 29, 2004, 10:15:11 AM
That is awesome Worff...but it will be sad to see you go.  I can't think of any other tools, bring the brake bleeder in case someone wants to use it

See ya Wednesday

Post by: 92UrS4 on March 29, 2004, 11:05:09 AM
I have the group Brake Bleeder too! I have no idea how to use it, but I figure while changing my rear pads I could probably bleed the brakes for the Passat?

I think we hit on this before, but how much brake fluid would I need to do a flush?

Post by: DenverPat on March 29, 2004, 11:25:55 AM
Whoa!  I haven't been checking this thread much and didn't realize how many people were going to show...including Worff.  Very cool.
I bought a grease gun over the weekend Jon, so let me know if I need to bring that Wednesday.
Oh and Worff, stick it to those bastards! :-)

Title: Mini Garage Day, Wednesday March 31st
Post by: Worff on March 29, 2004, 01:34:11 PM
GIETL, you will need about 1 1/2 quarts to do a full flush.

Hello all, My b-day is Wednesday. I am getting a new computer shipped to my work that day. I might go in until I get it and then take the day off and stop on in to finally meet some of you guys. I really dont have any mods to do right now but I would love to hang out and drink some brews while you all work.- ya know possibly adding some assistance here and there where I may be some help. Also, I just got a call from this guy who I might be renting a house from in Highlands Ranch. That would mean a new house/G2G party is in store for the next month or so.  I'll keep ya posted. It also has a nice big oversized 2 car garage. Great for those G2G / bbQ days this summer.  :lol:

Man o man - what to do?

My son was sick yesterday, and I missed work, so I am not sure missing another day would be a good call.  I might have to wait for the May 1st GTG.

Phuckers!  I hate you all.  Knowing that I will be at the office when you are all wrenching.  But that again I am going to Metallica and God Smack tomorrow night so....

I wont be there until about 6:00 or so, hope that doesn't foul things up too much.  If that's too late let me know. It's going to be weird driving the Passat tomorrow.

Get here when you can Jay, we can get started, then break for dinner, then come back and finish it up...It should  take no time at all to do your rear brakes on the Passat.  See ya tomorrow.

I'll help you with the paint.  Give me a call sometime.  Were you thinking spray can or pro job?

Personally, I'd have it professionally done.  I'd say check out the Price Paint Shop (Winston), but he's already got waaaay too much on his plate as it is.  If you decide to DIY, give me a call and I can help.

It was a nice turn out, We had quite a bit of work everybody was doing. I even brought along a few brews for my B-Day. It was nice to finally match some faces with cars.  Nice meeting every body. For those others hope to meet you soon. Thanks again Jon for starting this little shin dig. Sorry only pic I took. Maybe Jon will post a few if anybody's interested.
