You want my brothers number? He has done several, and is an engineer for Audi, so you guys could talk geek talk and understand each other

sure. atleast send him a text that I will be calling though so he doesn't think some strange guy wants him to teach him how to take apart a CV shaft.

Does he have tools/shop to rebuild one? They are F'ing messy...

Tell your boss you have more important things to do right now. Tell him you might even give up internet at work during the week if you can guarantee 8 and skate and no weekends.

Well I officially need to sollicite help. I don't have room in my garage for people to come over and help, so if someone wants to help, the parts need to go back to your place, use your tools, etc. I can drop parts off, or you can pick up. I will pay with beer or cash. Here is what I need;

CV shafts rebuilt- Need somone with experience in 930 joints. I don't have the room to play with these, or the time to teach myself (but it looks simple via youtube)
Heims in King Coilovers - I have a pair of use King coilovers that I need the old heims removed (spray with PB blast, remoce snap rings, remove heims, instal new heims, instal snap rings). Sounds simple but removing the snap ring and old heims will take some time that I don't have.

The post to picture ratio is horrible in this thread. I can't believe I just went through 88 posts for almost nothing.


That ambulance comment was pretty good.

That isn't helping your case. You will be robbed on principle that you have something worth hiding from the general public.

No, I heard the real reason is that Bones keeps his Hello Kitty collection on the walls of the garage because wakebabe finds it kinda creepy and won't let it in the house. I guess he is a little embarrassed to show off the collection since he's afraid it will ruin his street cred. That's also why wakebabe won't work on it when Bones isn't around.

tube work has been done for a long time, it is a simple design so notches are easy. I either need to work less hours, have a more efficient shop, or not race the UMC and get back to enjoying working in the garage at a comfortable pace.

EDIT- or hire help, which I hate to do. Not because of the $$, but because I like everything done my way lol
