    So, it has been a while since we had a build day. So why not the middle of summer.

    This weekend at my place. Saturday the 7th. 16th street and Union Hills.
    Respond to this and I'll drop you my address if your down for it.

    I know Seabass has to do his front bearings and that will just about be an all day thing. Even if you don't have any thing to do and just want to show up for the sweat t-shirt contest you are more than welcome.

    I would definitely come to this if I wasn't already obligated to San Diego. Definitely want to see your shop.

    It is not as much of a shop as just a garage with a lot of tools. I wish I had a car lift.. I think If I take out the bed room above the garage, then I'd have the space for one.

    Let's be honest... you really only care about your own rig.
    Definitely in, of course :) I'm even foregoing Friday catfishing to make sure I'm rested for this one. Big props for offering up not only your garage but your time and know-how!

    I can't wait to get out of here and see those temps. Might need to bring a jacket, lol.

    Let's be honest... you really only care about your own rig.
    And humid like Louisiana. I'm still in of course.

    UPS tracking shows my bearings out for delivery today. They get delivered to my office so I'll have time to inspect for ship damage or any other potential issues. UPS is usually here by 1pm.

    Did you get a chance to call network alignment to see if we can drop off the parts to have the bearings pressed?

    Hub bearings in hand and arrived in perfect condition. So ready to tear down the front end tomorrow and see what else is going on under there.

    Anyone know of a place in town that I could probably score 2 new front axles if I needed to? I want this front end done right and back to being solid again. Bushing kits would be nice, too. Maybe I'm getting in over my head...
