PostSubject: GREENSBORO area wrenching day....   Mon Dec 24, 2012 12:20 am

I know there is some pretty good interest in a get together for some wrenching soon for some folks that live in the Greensboro area. lets get some possible dates and times and a headcount for this. If you want to attend you dont necessarily need to have any wrenching done to your truck. Just join us for some fun. We are always looking to have folks jsut get together and meet and greet. i would do it at my house however i have limited space to have anything done ...only one truck at a time and its tight. but i do have alot of land to have alot of vehicles at one time.

So lets try to get some possible dates and times, a head count, and what your wanting to have done.

I'm free any day between now and January 2nd. I have front 5100's coming in on Thursday this week (12/27/12). Let's get this party started!

I have a huge driveway and room for several trucks. One oversized bay to pull a car in. No hydraulic lifts or jacks though. Fair assortment of tools but by no means a garage. I need to install PIAA lights up front and remove mud flaps. I need rear shocks but not sure if that can e done in the driveway or by me without specialized tools.

the rear shocks are easy to do...very easy so no problem there...and the lights are easy for Ryan if he can make it to this...

the front 5100s are pretty easy too..jsut a little more time consuming...(more time to drink a beer)...

Hell, I'm in if we can do it at my house again. I'm stuck here most of the day waiting on Time Warner to show up and you know how punctual they are! I've got some space to work and park, but since it's only gonna be 47 on Friday, it'd be nice working in a heated garage for any of the bigger projects (of course I've got heat). I can handle two trucks at once in the garage if someone's willing to help me push the Honda out and back in again once we're done. I know we could easily get some 5100's, rear shocks and lights installed at this with some extra time for a few other projects as well.

I ride a Specialized Carve 29'r with a 1x9 drivetrain setup. I literally live on Wild Turkey trail in Greensboro so I'm fortunate to have about 40 miles of trails right out the front door. You ride?

FYI I havent seen anyone mention it yet but you need to go Auto Zone/Advance Auto and rent a spring compessor to do the 5100's. You have to pay a deposit($48-52 maybe) but you get it back when you return it.
