Hey all,

I was talking with Dain and figured it's been way too long since we've had an open-to-the-club wrenching party and Dain graciously offered to open up his garage to us on Saturday 2/17.

He lives in Ashburn and has all the tools you might need. Just plan on bringing some food or drink, and there will be membership applications there if you aren't a member yet!

Post below if you're interested -- currently the only thing we have to work on is rotating my tires and doing my brakes.

And a big thank you to Dain!!

Agenda:
1. Fix Dain's exhaust
2. Full brake job on my JK (w/ new master cylinder + booster)
3. Catch can

I am not a member yet but had planned on joining in the near future.  Seems like a good time to make it official.

I will have to double check the calendar but I don't know of anything at this time.

If I end up coming out, I do have a catch can to install so we could knock that out too.

Come on out. You can see the catch can I have on my 258. But for a completely different reason. Wink

Oh and, I have a pretty good selection of tools, but i would not say that I have “all you will need”. Maybe, but maybe not. If you know you need something special, ask, or be safe and bring it.

But I do have an engine hoist available if we are tackling a project that needs one.

Dain,

I plan to stop by to lend a hand. If you need anything special, let me know I might have it...

What's the plan with the weather? 1-3 inches of snow and mix nonsense

It depends on the folks needing work done. Saturday is better for my schedule, but i can make Sunday work if needed. We can use my garage, but only one at a time.

Any chance your garage is heated?  Freezing your buns off

We only have 3 Jeeps to work on right now, so I think the plan is to put 1 in the garage and close the door then swap em out. Ping Dain for his address, show up any time in after 9am.

It does alright, and I have a kerosene heater. Just need to see if I have enough kerosene

Dain,

I am looking forward to lending a hand, or watching, and meeting everyone. My plan to arrive at your a garage between 9 & 10 with doughnuts in tow.

If you need tools and/or supplies or if my arrival time is too early, let me know.
