Thanks for the link - I like the idea of air movement THRU the cabin and across the occupants rather than OVER them...

Great to meet everyone - please don't hold knowing Dan Rao against me...

Dan is one of the first LR people I met in the DC area circa 1995. So, nothing to hold against you on that. Cheers to you and Dan both.

Any frame shop references in NOVA? Our strut tower needs a little straightening....
Weird that the V-8 Firebird was worse off. Probably totaled.

Chris Loiselet is the owner and personally owns a D90, Series, and a Disco. He's the go-to guy for Rosenthal LR.

I've been impressed by what I've seen there.

Thanks. I just spoke with Chris. From his ROM estimate, he must have a backlog of full service work. Waiting for Walid's estimate, but it might be time to find a pair of big trees, some chains, and my hi-lift.

you should be able to pull that out with your winch mate. Just tie the BMW up to its rear bumper.

Tried that at the track Sat evening, but we couldn't figure out a suitable surface to brace against. Granted, if we pulled the motor, it would be a different story, but that option remains on the table. Funny, the other car was strapped between two 1-ton trucks. They were yanking on it for an hour to no avail. One strap was to the ball on a deep drop down hitch. It had all the makings for a Darwin video for YouTube.

How about an inverted U to clear the motor with a spreader bar across the other side to distribute the weight? Would just require some scrap metal.

Would hydraulic spreaders help?

If you got a trailer ... I got some tools and am on duty in Sterling on Sunday
