Default 1-1-2016 Ho5G GTG

Once again we are hosting the very first GTG of the new year on New Year's Day, 1/1/2016!
Festivities will start @ 9am-ish and go to 10pm-ish on 1-1-2016.
HO5G rules apply remember if you feel the need to fill the towns coffers with your hard earned cash do so at your own risk by driving DUI or speeding. The chief of police lives 3 doors up from the HO5G and he will be glad to accept your contributions.
A few notes about our GTG format:
#1 – ALL newbie’s:
By newbie’s I mean all of you that we don’t know. Just because you've been here doesn't necessarily mean we know you! You need to ‘check in’ with us and get a name tag. This is our home and we would like to know who’s here!
#2 – Food & beverages: It's not fair to expect the same people to provide the bulk of the food!
Bring items we all share. We provide propane and grill.
#3 – Work
Garage space as always is first come, first served there is a lift list. Big jobs need to be cleared by us first. As always – NO timing belts unless done by a pre-approved (i.e. mrchill, HermTDI) or a veteran approved club member. Those arrangements MUST be made in advance with us & the person doing the work.
Bring the TOOLS and FLUIDS that you'll need for the job! We have a brake bleeder and oil extractor available. Bring containers for your fluids! (We have a relatively shallow well for water so fluid spills are unacceptable.)
ALL WORK IS TO BE COMPLETED BY 10pm
We enjoy opening our home and warm garages to you...all we ask for is a little courtesy and respect in return. As my sign says: BE NICE OR GO AWAY!
Now back to our regularly scheduled GTG - bring your tools, to do lists and a little something to share food/drinkwise!
Bring food, bring drink, bring tools and bring good weather!
The garage will be warm and the lift ready - clear all lift jobs w/ PeterV!
Hope to see you there (I mean here!)
PeterV & Hamsterdiesel
PS - Stay tuned to this post #1 for updated info!
Update #1 I will post addy just before the GTG .... there are BOTS out there that look for info...

I'm not sure you caught the Matrix reference

Blue pill or Red pill?

I definitely didn't because when I read Lug_Nut's comment, I thought "Do they make the Matrix in any color other than silver?" I am a total movie bimbo, I admit it.

I have to work that day but will try to get down for a few hours, provided I'm over this sickness by then. It's going on 3 weeks but I can't seem to shake it. And yes, I have been to the doctor's, I come home to her every night.

I have two requests for tools to use for diagnostic purposes

1) Radio removal tools for a double DIN (late MarkIV and B5.5 Passat type) radio.
My Phat box occasionally loses left front speaker. AM,FM,cassette, in-head CD don't. If I press on the radio face the left front returns to use. Pretty sure that implies the cable from the trunk to the head unit isn't secured. I'd like to check it out.


2) A working VDS-Pro set-up.
I'm so far unable to get mine to connect and communicate. I'd like to compare using your laptop, cable, settings values and such and possibly swapping my items in one-by-one to see if I have a defective cable or something that is preventing me from using my set-up.

If you have tools to use please let me know by post here or by PM at my e-mail link in the screen name to the left.
