Re: The "Hope I get it done by WF Oh-Ten" thread

Awesome, swing by Worcester on the way or something. There's a good crew out here, about a dozen guys have shown up for both of the events lobsterdmb has run.

Hope that cruise works for you, IN to MA (and vice versa) is a hell of a trip.

Re: The "Hope I get it done by WF Oh-Ten" thread

I have a set of axles begging me to work on them... but the money is still screaming at me. Rear 60 is almost ready to be assembled, all I have left for that is a locker, shafts, install kit, and some other small parts. Front 44 is another story. All I have there is the housing and knuckles. Still need tires then, got some blingin H2 rims already.

Re: The "Hope I get it done by WF Oh-Ten" thread

I have a nice shop that is well stocked w/ tools etc, but I am a bit of a drive for most. The offer is on the table, if anyone wants to have a wrench fest at my shop it is open for the invite. It is heated, plenty of works space for a few rigs at the same time, cold beverages, hot dog machine and nachos are on the house......PM if someone wants to get something going.

Cheeseman-OUT!

I like that idea Mac. I know that since the MWC is so spread out that one local wrenchfest that is centeralized is still a 8+ hour trip for some members. Anyhooo, my shop is still open for who ever wants to use it.
