Talking Thursday work afternoons/evenings (Allendale, MI)

Thursday afternoons/evenings are my normal "shop work nights"...with a wife & kids, I have to schedule my work time . Starting Thursday 7/20, any Thursday evening help would be greatly appreciated (see what's in it for you below).

My first work night will be a "vehicle tear-down" night. The demolition is always the fun part. I'm planning on pulling a handful of items off this \\\\\\\\\\'85 CJ-7, and probably start tearing down this \\\\\\\\\\'90 Grand Wagoneer. I also have another '85 CJ-7 coming this weekend, and possibly a Scrambler. See THIS THREAD for my current parts vehicle inventory (plus I have a LOT of additional loose CJ parts).

I'm hoping to knock out a lot of work in a relatively short amount of time on these Thursday work nights. What do I have to offer for your help?
  • I can order pizza, and pick up some beer for nourishment (pop if you're underaged).
  • If you're interested in CJ/XJ/FSJ parts, I can barter with those for your help.
  • If you lend a hand with this work, and need space to work on your own Jeep in the future, you'd be welcome to use my shop (30' x 32' pole barn) to do the work. I have a wide range of tools (hand tools, specialty tools, grinder, welder, bullet heater for the Winter, etc.) at my disposal.

When:
Thursdays (beginning 7/20), 4:30 p.m. - ??? (10:00 p.m.-ish)

Where:
My place in Allendale, Michigan (~15 minutes West of Grand Rapids). If you haven't been to my place before, PM me for address/phone/directions.

What to bring:
Just yourself. I have all the tools we'll need.



Let me know if you can lend a hand. Thanks!

Craig

Jared = 1 Jeep that isn't currently driveable.
Me = Several Jeeps that aren't currently driveable. :tonka: Jared's ahead in my book.

I took a couple months off from parting stuff out, but I definitely have the Jeeps stackin' up now. The good news is that tear-downs go a heck of a lot faster than build-ups.

You know you guys are welcome to do work on your stuff at my place whenever you need to. Let me know if you can make it out to lend a hand sometime with mine.

Later,
Craig

Yup. Another case of call screening by my friends who think I'm a phone solicitor.

Craig,
I'm going to try to make it over this Thursday.............I have to clear my schedule.

I want to bring a couple Jeep buddies over next week, they both need parts, and/or a whole Jeep. So I thought they could help for future trading/or help in location of parts.

Absolutely, John. Give me a call about this week (I'll PM you my phone #s again). If you can make it over this week, great. If not, I'll just catch up with you next week. We can talk about what your buddies are looking for, and go from there.

I just picked up another '85 CJ-7 project this weekend. It has a very nice frame and 1-pc. Moser axles in the rear. I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing with it yet, though. We'll chat more.

Thanks,
Craig

Kevin,

I got your phone message. Why don't you swing by once you get done with your 5:00pm meeting (we'll be around). I'll try calling you later, too.

Thanks,
Craig
