    I don't have a preferred weekend. I'll be a gametime decision based on whether I have to be on call for work. I can bring an air compressor and air tools and food.

    I'm down for any day. Doesn't matter to me. How much land you got? Can you shoot on it? I know a couple of members have been wanting to meet up at the gun range for a day

    No, I am within the city limits and it's only 1 acre. However, there is a gun range right up the road that just opened. http://www.armadilloguns.com/ I haven't been there so can't speak to it, but it's like 3 minutes from the house.

    I can help you with the satoshi, no problem. I have leftover bondo and fiberglass still actually. It takes more than a day though, but we can at least get started.

    If anyone has a welder I have been meaning to have my magnaflow welded so I can get rid of the clamps. It's stainless steel I'm not if that makes a difference, I know nothing about welding.

    I also have an ultragauge if anyone needs to check or clear codes.

    Welding stainless is a little different. I am not sure what it takes to weld stainless.

    Hah, forgot to put what I wanted to do! We don't have to focus on just my stuff, so it's whatever we have time for. I figured we could sort it out when everyone gets here.

    • Upper A-arms (light racing)
    • CB radio
    • Shim my front bumper *


    * My allpro wings curve up too much so I can't run my fenders. If I shim the bumper then I can put flares back on or try and put the after markets back on.

    I need a sawsall if we do the uppers. I bought replacement bolts.
