Wrenching/Fixing/Moding in VA Beach thread.

Since we always seem to highjack a thread here in Va Beach with what we need to, want to do workwise on our trucks. I thought I would just start a thread where someone could come in start a new topic within this thread of what they want to do, where they want to do it and when they want to do it. Hopefully this will help prevent the highjacking which we seem to always do. Anyways, feel free to use it if you wish.

3313 Heffington Drive, once on Heffington look on right for Howards lane on right, turn there and the shop is on your left, most if not all usually start at 9am

I'd be interested to lending a hand on a scheduled weekend. I would need a place to crash while down there because of the long drive.

Betty WILL run....

since i am working the 21st and then going to wintergreen sat and sunday, i can't be apart of the slider builds. have fun tho.

i am seriously looking at scrapping our camping plans and tackling my diesel swap the weekend before halloween. depending on what side job i have lined up, i will likely start thurs the 27th and be on it pretty solid for the weekend. i am off the 27th-31st (don't you wish you were a fireman to have a 5 day weekend?), so i will be working on it all day and into the night pretty much everyday except sunday. i suppose i could take a break for our meet and greet on saturday...i may show up covering in oil/grease.

I'm sure between all of us you will not have to worry about finding a place to crash man.

I might be able to make it out to help a little on friday after work. And you better bring your greasing a$$ if your staying around here


I know i will be over at fritts tomorrow for a little bit to help out.

Next month I am going to tackel some of the rust i have. Getting the patch panels, fritts said he will teach me to weld. Then i have one rust whole inside the cab. Thinking of hitting the jy first things next saturday morning. Let me know if anyone of yall want to go.

Tomorrow. The 15th starting at 0900, get together at my place to install Mark's bumper, 2 of my 40s, high steer arms, and exhaust. If we get that done we can start on some shackle flips.
