If I didnt care about cleaning and painting my engine bay, I could prolly get it done on a Saturday. I may prepull my motor and do work on it, then group effort to pull remaining parts and bobs.

Just need insurance to give me a price. Or my bro to give me the car. Lol

Lol. I never asked for help. Timmy offered, and I included the Brads as well they like grease too.

I also mastered changing my own diaper.

Edit, also this is all pending his insurance not being dickbags.

i'm a little skeptical on day 1 but day 2 sounds like something I'd enjoy!

also you can't do it at 2am like Aku does otherwise I'll just fall asleep halfway through taking out a trans

sand rail is a bit much, a shifter cart would be sweet but you might have to get a bigger/longer chassis.

the cart would be best, register it in some ridiculous autox class and just blast around the course. or just hoon it around wherever.

golf cart would be lulzy.
