NOVA Wrenching Party 3/22 or 3/29

Looking to gauge interest and finalize the date, but plan doing this Saturday March 22nd, or Saturday March 29th, and keeping the day after clear in case I need it to wrap up.

On the agenda:

1. Rebuild my D90 third members with 4.11 gears and ARB lockers
2. Cut off front diff cover and weld on sewer cap
3. Install ARB air compressor and plumbing, switches
4. Drink and be merry.

Not necessarily in that order.

If you want to to do some work on your own rig feel free to bring it and do so - this isn't more than a 2 man job, but there is lots to learn and yack about once we get into the gears. This is my first attempt at re-gearing, but I have adjusted the backlash before, and seen pictures of an ARB install (also know a guy who has installed one - Loic). I have never stayed at one of those hotels that apparently make you smarter, but I get by with little to no sleep occasionally just fine

I'd like to wrap up the day with dinner off the grill, more beer, cigars, and even hot tub time for the brave.

Anyone interested?

charles
p.s Loic, I need to borrow your dial indicator and press (Or do I need to bug Tony for it?)

If I can ever get outlook to work again I'll check and see if I'm free. Do you want to do this at my buddy's shop in Arlington?

SWEET!

Charles, are you right by the airport? If I'm still in VA then, I'd love to swing by!

Ade,

Charles lives a few miles from Dulles Airport. If you are in town, you better stop by!

I've been doing some consulting work for General Dynamics this week in Fairfax off Jermantown Rd. Heading back to Michigan later today. I'll be back in VA for the next 2 weeks on Sunday...then it might extend further, but not with GD. Digging Reston and Falls Church so far! I've heard traffic here can be a bitch, I've been avoiding it as much as I can.

Hopefully I can meet up with you guy possibly before then or during the wrenching party!

We should at least do a happy hour when you're in town.

I suppose we could, I mean, that would be okay, if he's in town and all.

You should have told us you were in town. We really don't *need* an excuse to have a happy hour, but this certainly qualifies to make sure we get one in over the next two weeks. I can't check my calendar until sunday night, but the usual applies for me - Thursday nights are bad, the rest are likely fair game depending on what the boss has planned for me.

I'm in for a happy hour (honest I'll show up this time). Just need to get my supple corinthian leather front seats back from upholstery shop. Guessing Ade can't do a Friday evening- any other week night is better for me as a weekend parent. How about a Wednesday? 5th or 12th ?

First week at a new client site, I tend to put in some serious hours. I think these next few weeks should be smoother. I'll be in VA next weekend too!

Just a bump. This is still on. Please PM or email me if you are coming and I can give you directions. Especially if you'll be there in the evening so I can stock steaks and beer accordingly. Coming for the social aspect only is perfectly fine, as is bringing significant others.

I'm going to get started around 9am, but I expect we'll be in the garage all day, and then breaking for festivities around 5 or 6.
