November 1st dont work for me my sis in law is gettin married. how bout the 2nd weekend in NOV. 7th, 8th, 9th? the following weekend is michigans main holiday, opening day of gun deer season, so thats not good then after that is thanksgiving. otherwise we wait till December. what do ya think?
I'm just messin with ya . I bought my first truck (ranger) in Kent City and did some school in Grant...so I'm familiar with the Sparta area

I agree with your date ranges...I can't do the 7-9 cause I'll have my kids. Best I could do in November would be the last weekend...30th. But that's just be me!

I'm smack dab in the middle of scenic Shepherd now. Nice, little, quiet town. Not much different than Grant...beets in clay instead of turnips in muck....

End of December will work for me also. That would be good.

i'd be up for it, floor boards probably won't be fixed by then, but i'm gonna try atleast to fix where the driver's side mount is under the driver's floor board.

i gotta get the balljoints replaced, just got to tear the front end apart and go to a local shop and have them pressed in for $20 then luve the tie rods and everything, change the oil and filter again, flush the cooling system again and fix a broken wire going to my rear lights and cleaning her out. how hard is it to replace a driver's side power window motor?
