Score!

Probably just needs a fuel pump[s] and filter.

Saskatchewan isn't really even one of the rusty provinces, too cold for salt there.

It will need out-of-province and aircare though. If you get a picky inspector it could add quite a few $$$ to get it to runner status.

He'll probably swear at you in Chinese, do a relaxed OOP while mumbling through it then it'll be all done in no time.

I've heard good things about that shop.

Anyone know a place locally with an alignment rack where they wouldn't mind letting a nutter fool around with his own adjustments? I have some things coming from Maryland, and they will likely need to be aligned.

I don't know of a shop like that, but Kon sends all his to a place down the street. They seem to have some other people's project cars (and a few Volvos) there, so maybe they'll be open to it.

Hey guys, DEK2688 on here, he's in Coquitlam, is planning on getting some parts powdercoated, and he's seeing if we can get a few parts of the same colour done together to bring down costs! He's got his eyes on low-gloss black and high-gloss silver, and I was hoping to get my braces (upper and lower Cherry Turbo) done in black or blue, so if there's any want for this kind of thing, now's the time to do it! Send him a PM if you're interested.

I'm also thinking of a ceamic coat run too in matte black and shiny silver for March if anyone want to jump on it.

Any colour is possible, but each colour is $100 basic cost to run - and I'm still thumbwrestling over getting better pricing with the vendor. I'll keep anyone posted who may be interested.

Just PM me, I'll start a list...

Rich

EDIT: Also, was talking to my buddy Theo last night about a bigger Vancouver TBricks/Volvospeed meet. Sorta like West Side Story, but no love and more boxes.

Maybe we can all crash one of the Thursday Night Meets together?

Oh yeah, on Clark. I've been eyeing that place up. Seems like the right kind of shop if they have some project cars around.

Maybe I'll pop in there sometime when I get a chance and check it out.

Work right across the street from there and been a few times. Never heard of any stabbings. Besides, there's a London Drugs and a Canadian Tire right there. We can patch ourselves up.

Pfft, it was just one stabbing.

Yeah nice to meet you. i always enjoy a geekout brick session. Thanks again for the explanation of what HID's actually are.

And jesus... It was probably 7 years since I saw Darth. Glad to see she's in good hands and is aging well.
