Paul, it the Pride II is in need of some (minor) funds, PM me near the end of the year, as I am involved in a group that typically makes end of year donations. PM or call me. We should network a bit more.

Thanks, Bob! I will be in touch.

I swear the B4 gods know when I have time off and plan something.
If it's any consolation, the Touareg's transmission has decided to start whining (more specifically the input shaft bearing, I suspect), so it will be staying at home and thinking about what it's done. :(

Hi, all. Something has come up and I will not be able to attend Saturday's festivities.
Pride of Baltimore II, one of my floating "mistresses", and a boat that I helped build, needs my help this weekend to get ready for the sailing season. (www.pride2.org) I will be getting the Cat 3604s and the rest of the mechanical and electrical systems commissioned, as well as helping take down the winter cover so the rig can go back up.
This is a much welcomed last-minute change to what was to have been Pride II's first inactive season since I sailed in her on the maiden voyage in 1989. The boat's state funding went away several years ago but, with help from local captains of industry and government officials, Pride II's mission as goodwill ambassador and economic development platform for the City and State will continue uninterrupted.
I will continue to monitor both this and the "Food" thread, and make any changes and updates as necessary. I'll miss you all on Saturday, but I'll see you in Maine!
That's great news for the Pride II! I hope you and the crew have a great weekend. :cool:

You can take my name off the pointless dent repair list. I'm bringing the other 06 I have that has a startup smoke issue to get some opinions. But that one doesn't need PDR. Only one issue allowed per car in my household. Looking forward to Saturday.

It's been a LONG time since my last appearance at Impex Fest. My daughter will be joining me. What happens IF it rains? I recall tents and wrenching from years past. What about now? I don't need any wrenching done to my car. But will others be working on their cars? I think Diana may enjoy seeing cars in various stages of light project work. She's going to learn to drive my Mk3 and may have an interest in working on it.

We have the warehouse we can all be in as well as a pop up tent if need be! We will make it work

Impex has quite a bit of indoor space if it rains.

Currently, WUnderground.com has the forecast as partly cloudy, a high of 80F & less then 7% chase of rain during the day increasing to about 30% chance in the evening.

I'll add you both to the list. There is garage and indoor warehouse space, as well as a tent to fly if it rains. The only relatively big project so far is an intake manifold change out by paramedick on MaryP's car.

Thanks, Sailor. We've booked a room for Friday evening. Even seeing oil changes may be of interest to her. :) See you Saturday.

I'll be leaving Toronto at about midnight Saturday morning and should be arriving at Impex at between 8:30 - 9:00am maybe earlier depending on traffic ready for the fun :)

Looks like I will be stopping by my first impex gtg. Need a quick tune update from Jeff, and maybe get some opinions on various noises and stuff(that are driving my OCD crazy). Looking forward to it!

Anyone have a quick fix for a falling headliner other than replacing it? I am about ready to do it, it is getting bad in the back.

I'm a bit confused on the location. I understand they've moved. When I plug in the address to Google Maps, it looks like it's around the corner on Oak Lane. And Lito posted a pic of a huge parking lot that is possibly further on down. There certainly doesn't appear to be enough parking at the Impex site?

The picture Lito posted is of a shopping mall nearby that has a cars and Coffee event on Saturday mornings......not related to Impex

Don't worry, Mary, there's more than enough room. The parking lot in front of Impex's new warehouse is larger than that at the old space. I was there a couple of weeks ago for their gasser GTG and there were close to 100 cars there. Sorry to be missing this, but might try to make it up at the end of the day depending on how things go at the boat.

Thanks for the info. I'll just look for a crowd! The Oak Lane thing on Google Maps is what's throwing me off. I'll be getting on the road in a bit and am staying at my brother's in Ellicott City this weekend.

Lito, will you be coming around? :)

Sure do!

Best solution I've found to read off the sensors I've found.:cool:
