When would you like to have it? Hard to say on this one, but almost has to be on a Sat/Sun as many people have those days off.

How often? Once a month

Suggest a project. Tough one too, so many people with different levels of experience. A basic tune up/oil change session where everyone can get together and bs while doing basic stuff on their rigs. I know personally I have minimal experience with valve adjustments and the like, but that might not be fun for anyone else.

Brake bleeding
Shift rod bushing replacement
Axle tube boot replacement (out of car of course)

It sounds like our first night needs to be fixing some things on Jennies car. I would like to hear from some more people saying they will be there. I still vote for Fridays.

Fridays would be tough for me, sunday evenings are good.

I dont know a whole heck of a lot about the mechanics of my bug so any topic would be great.

You just want grunt labor and someone to get tools for you! Seriously though, you know I will help with whatever I can.

Talk is cheap. Let's do this thing. My house this Friday, 6 PM. Anyone who has not been there before send me a PM for directions. Jenny, I think we should give your car a look and make a list of what needs doing. Somebody else bring another project in case that doesn't take very long. I am sorta thinking it will take 2 nights for each project, the first to plan what to do, then get the parts, etc, and work on it the next. So each shop night we need 2 project cars.
Sorry about the people for whom Friday is not good.

I am in, can't really drive my bus over thanks to a knee injury that makes the clutch a real PITA, or I would just to have people look it over for me.
