David has one he needs to install also. Nick helped me with mine. I'd be more than happy to lend a helping hand sometime.

I am looking forward to this. I have a project I need done for sure. Want to pull my front Bilsteins off and move them up to the top notch.

Thanks Andy for this opportunity

What is the approximate location (city) for this? I don't really need to do anything, but I might come to hang out. I have missed every group event so far.

Andy, should we make a list of tools folks can bring and others we may need to rent. I am happy to rent the coil compression tool for my shock job. I also have a set of jack stands, air compressor, impact wrench, torque wrenches and most sizes of wrenches, sockets, and allens. My floor jack just crapped out on me so don't have that.

We have 2 floor jacks, about 6 floor stands, 1 welder, 3 grinders, electrical cords for power, torque wrench sockets, snap ring pliers and so on. I just scavenged 5 spools of tubing that might work to supply tube for the scuba mod for the entire club 5 times over. I am going to check the diameters tomorrow. I would say the best bet is to bring your own hand tools like sockets, wire cutters, screw drivers and such. It sounds like a good number of people are coming and I do not have enough tools for multiple things at once. You need to bring your expendable items as well. If you need wire, splices, tape, grinder wheels, fittings, metal for welding, etc.. Bring it please. If we pull out all the work vehicles and trailers I bet 5 or 6 fj's can fit inside the warehouse easily around all the materials with doors open. I am betting it might be cold being the middle of February. The warehouse is not heated. I do have a Kerosene heater and some old Kerosene that I need to use up but if anyone else has one that might not be a bad idea. It is a 3000 sq ft shop with 18' high ceilings. One will not do that much. If there are anymore questions please feel free to ask. The location is 8804 Gulf Ct Suite I (indigo), Raleigh. We are about 2 minutes away from the Wild Wing Cafe from Saturdays meet over on Westgate Road.
