Any interest in doing the brakes on my baja this Friday? It should just need new hydraulics from lack of use. I need to get things ready for Bugfair.

I am game as always, might not be pizza this time since I would probably ride my motorcycle, but I can bring beer or something else. Actually I have brake "issues" on the Ghia, no brake lights and a little mushy, I am sure they need to be bled, do we have time to do that too?

Sure, the good part about working on my cars is it doesn't matter if we leave it partly done. We should give your Ghia a going over and make a list.

Your place so your call, I am just happy to be able to learn from you and the others. Personally I think you just want me to bring pizza Laughing

Welcome home. Where are pics from Bugorama? PM ONEBADBUG for directions, I am not one to give up where other people live without them telling me it's ok.

OK, first of all, it's not a party! It may seem like one, but we do have actual goals. Second, we're not doing any custom stuff, just r&r. Third, I like what Eric said, I try to keep a low profile as far as internet stuff goes. I look forward to seeing you. Third, what happened to Jen? I thought she wanted to do this stuff.

Since we are talking brakes, is it safe to say that connecting up an emergency brake is pretty easy?

I just now got the baja out of the shop, granted most of that time was spent working on the seat mounts, but there was a lot of work after you guys left.
I have mixed feelings about the shop nights, it's fun, but it frustrates me as well because we get so little done. If you guys learn and enjoy, I am happy to do it. I think maybe I need to have Troy all the time, it's hard for one guy to keep up!
