I5 to 56th St W exit, follow 56th St westbound for approx. 5 miles (56th ST W will change to Cirque when you cross Orchard St)
after you cross Bridgeport Way you have about 1 1/2 miles to go.
you'll go down a short down hill, followed by a short up hill S turn to a long down hill
turn right on Bristonwood Dr (watch for Sunset Primary School signs)
turn right on 97th Ave W (the next street)
turn right on 47th St W (the next street)
we're the last house on the left

HINT: If you miss that first right turn on Bristonwood Dr. the next thing you'll see is a round-a-bout at Grandview Drive, just go around that and head back up Cirque one block to Bristonwood then quit screwing around and get here.

You are welcome to join us if you'd like, just post a reply and if you have anything in particular you'd like to work on include that info also.

ORIGINAL POST:

There's been some interest expressed in organizing a work party. So let's give it a shot and see what we come up with.

My thought is that we set a date, meet at my house on that date, and help each other work on our cars. Simple enough. [;)]

My garage is big enough and I have enough ramps, jack stands and tools to work on two cars at a time.
Now of course there would have to be a BBQ and maybe even a
or two (after the work is done).

Do you need help installing something, figuring out a problem, have something you've put off because you didn't know how to do it, just want to help work on a fellow FF'ers (just doesn't sound right does it) car? Let's go for it!! [wrenchin]

We'd just need to agree on the following:

#1: a date (preferably a Saturday)
#2: well hell, I can't think of a number two

If you are interested, suggest a date. Probably helpful if you included what you'd like to work on, install, figure out, or whatever, so we know what we're getting ourselves into.

I'll do the same we did for our G2G and keep this 1st post updated with the names of those interested in coming and what they'd like to do while they're here (besides eat and drink). And don't forget, if you just like to come and help that's way cool too.

Once there's a majority consensus on a date I'll post that here also.

If anyone here could extend this invitation to those on FocalJet please do so. Just keep me up-to-date with any responses you receive over there so I can keep track of what's up over here. I'd do it myself but I just don't have the time to try and keep up with two sites at a time.

Oh yeah, I have nite-shade on order - but I don't know squat about ICE. Hopefully we'll get someone here that does though.

Yea, and if I were ever in the army I'd know what the hell "Motor SGT" meant. Hmm, maybe I'll just call Major Shit-toskey (Schitoskey) next door and ask him. (Frank hates it when I address him as such, but it's just way too much fun)

Well, I'd love to but I never did mess with the alternator on mine. I'll add that one to the list.

If it was drivable I would bring it up. It seems like its bad but not for sure yet. It was cutting out and then wouldnt go like above 20mph...and when I got close to my dads house(after I turned around I knew I wouldnt make it back to my house) it started to smell like smoke you couldnt see the smoke just smell it. But ya I think its the tranny and most likely its gonna be alot to fix it if it is. I just hope it doesnt take them forever to fix it cuz I really need a car.
