I had a 90 degree pick. They aren't easy to get out. Take your time and don't lose them.

Planning in advance is great. Just have to figure out what hotel for ocean city.
I'm covered on a room for SoWo already as well. Dunno if I'll go to H2Oi this year or not. Pends on if I have vacation available and how much of it I need for the bigger Auto-x Events since those will take priority over hard parking shows.

Hopefully I get a new job and can negotiate more vacation into the deal.

I did it in the SVT. It's really not too bad of a job but as always working under the dash can get cramped fast. I did this when I had the trans out for replacing the clutch as well but I don't think having the trans in will effect it too much. It's not too hard of a job

stop discouraging him, I want the motor/trans for the beater!


will text wifey to get exact schedule.

also yup, my birhtday is too close to the holidays so we have to book early or else can't get a room.
Rofl You never told me that story before.. That's hilarious (or i just forgot)

STI swapped beater OBS would be best

Also I assume that means if i'm going I need to call and book something soon too cuz I doubt you'd want me crashing on the floor... Then again I can just go snowboard if you want sexy times

I've done one, it's not horrible, just a bit of a PITA. Had to do mine last winter, 2 days before I left for CO if I remember right.

While my car was parked most of the time, i didnt attend many of the meets. Or just walked thru. Did a lot of cruising with Todd, then tourist stuff on the boardwalk.

Well true. We did a lot of driving at SoWo as well but I mainly just meant that the Bigger Auto-X events will take priority of shows for me

no idea, also courtney wants to go skiing with just me on friday which is fine cuz i have that whole week off as well as the week before that week because awesome work holiday.

then you come up and go skiing all day saturday. by about 3-4 we'll realize we're old and out of shape and then we'll go offroad hooning in the pooparu before heading home.
