Gotcha thanks. I got a call last night from my neighbor he needed a hand working on it small issue. It should be done and ready for pickup today. Between the new slave quitting and the rear being a pita I think the guy working on it has had enough

How about you all come down to the Ft. Myers meet on the 8th? We show up to the Tampa meets once in a while, time to return the favor.

Just borrow the wife's car for next week, take a break from wrenching on yours.

Speaking of which, how are the upgrades going? My brother and I finished doing a bunch of stuff to mine last night, it definitely seems happier.

That sucks Alex. I noticed that you are in Ft. Myers for work sometimes - maybe we can have a quick get together with the locals when you are around.

It doesn't happen with any regularity. The only other times I really head down that way are when I have to make a delivery to one of the Lee Memorial hospitals. Those are usually after hours anyway.
