lol. let's hope i am not in that situation again (at least my neighbors are hoping), but i may be. thanks for the offer. i will have it in mind. still waiting to hear about my engine being ready and for the shock bushing to show. have to:

install the engine
install shock bushings and shocks
install cup brace (already welded, just have to bolt in)
mount the oil cooler somewhere
rerun oil lines
relocate or replace breather (looking for CSP if anyone has one for sale)
rewire my regulaor bypass
wire my doors
figure out the right oil temp measurement situation (see other post on that one)
put in the passenger seat
and clean the thing

can do. :agree:

Weird... I just called the hotel to make my reservations and I got no answer. The phone just rang and rang, They are open 24 hours, correct.? I have never had to book a hotel before.

If we're still going in on a room, tell me where the Hotel is located. And 2 beds or 1 and you sleep on the floor, I think you're cool and all, but 3 people in 1 bed, sorry that's just too much for me.

I'll call them tomorrow, umm, later today.

Does this sound do-able.
Leave my house around midnight and drive all night so I arrive at the car show when they open at 8:00 am. Then take a quick nap in my car untill the rest of you guys show up. Or should I leave a little later in the morning like 2:00 am so I can show up a little before lunch. Unless You require my help Zen then I would come up sooner.

Good point, or showing someone where their room is or... I can't say, I'll keep my language clean.

That sounds very do-able, that was my first thought, but what if something happens to my car, then I might show up late and miss EVERYthing. So I'm going to get there the night before. Need a place to hangout, I'll have a room :agree: trying to help.
