My Georgia Peach confirmed 10:00 is ok. See I married a woman who as the hostess wants everything just so for all y'all.

Default I'll try to make it before noon...

I'm bring several different sockets in the 13 mm. size and 1/2. 3/8. an 1/2 inch ratchets. Had room in the Golf so I threw in a floor jack, pair of ramps, and 4 jack stands too. I've got a lawn to mow at my old place in north Minneapolis too so I'll do that before I come over- It's a small lot so hopefully it will go quickly. See you tomorrow!

The garage is on the alley behind the house. There is room for maybe 4 cars back there. If you park in front you access the backyard by walking down the north side of the house and there is a gate.

Dammit. This came up way too fast and other commitments have piled up. I won't be able to make it; I'm sorry. Maybe the next GTG...

Chris, thanks for hosting! Was great to see a couple "old" faces and meet a couple "new" ones.

I wasn't able to stick around and heckle up to my usual standards while others got dirty. I didn't even learn any new magical incantations made up of swear words, must not have been any work getting done while I was there.

And silly me, I didn't even have any brisket, which was no doubt wonderful! Next time . . .

The exhaust is in with just a couple of mount issue and a little leak. Yes you were silly as we have quite a bit left.

Yes we had a small crowd and a good time.

Default Thanks for the help with the exhaust!

Actually, you guys did most of the work. Car ran great all the way home, seemed to have picked up a bit of power from fixing that vacuum leak and cleaning the snow screen. Looking forward to future GTGs!

You experienced the best that TDICLUB does. 3 engineers with varying experience and age all working to get you car on the road. Nick said he would not wrench but he was a great resource providing guidance on other things that should be checked.
