    I can not begin to thank everyone enough for comming up, down and across to my place. Beno is right about getting into it quick. before I knew it I was the Shop Biatch, making sure everyone had drinks, a clean space to work, and plenty of paper towels.


    Karl, thanks for the calipers, and t case saver.
    Jim C. Thanks again, for the wisdom and for helping me remove some golf tees from the carb.
    Beno thanks for the bearings and races, and taking the LTXs.
    Tim, Thanks for building more of the front end than I did.
    Marty, thanks for the bumper, and taking those wheels down to Juke.

    There is truly something to be said about people who will drive across the state on a free Saturday to work 12 hours in 90 degree heat, and get absolutly greasy for a belly full of beer and some burgers and brats.

    I have not felt this type of friendship since my fraternity days.

    My wife even commented that everyone was very nice, and respectful, and not what she imagined from "mechanics off the internet".

    The to do list is very small now to get the 40 on the road for the first time in at least 4 years.
    Get the proper rotors, (thanks autodrone)
    Install rotors on hub assembly, pack wheel bearings and drive in seal.
    Put hub assembly on, put calipers on, bleed brakes. Put gear oil in diff.
    Install rear tail lights, and stop light switch,
    REGISTER, AND INSURE 40.

    OH yeah, seats and seat belts.
    Get over to JIM Cs for final tuning, Do a compression test to see if its trustworthy. Asking Jim to Look at my carb in the condition it was in, was like asking Picaso to paint a barn fence. Thanks again.

    again, I owe all of you guys big time. let me know who wants to host the next one. and I will be there.

    Warren.
