Default Atlanta Area, Most informal tech day ever, Saturday April 14

The other Ben (Atlanta93LE) & I are going to hook up this Saturday. The main event will consist of tapping an oil pan. Exciting, I know. Meeting is to commence at a shop in Lawrenceville, so there will be access to a lift, compressor, tools, etc. Nothing is planned, other than tapping Ben's oil pan. Maybe we'll grab something to eat, or go for a ride

So I'm extending an invitation to other Atlanta area folks who wouldn't mind helping with such an endeavor. Come, hang out, drink a beer. If you're feeling generous, bring a 6 pack or a bone for the shop dog. This is an opportunity to meet other enthusiasts, and/or put your car up in the air for minor work, fluid changes, etc....

Feel free to post questions. PM for contact info and address.

See, you try to help out others by offering your resources, and you get accused of ------ry.

So, everyone is invited, except SamS and myfonti.

**** I remember when I had to tap my oil pan. Multiple calls to scott, a drive to go get his tap. Cussing when the tap....miss tapped. Dremeling out the hole bigger so I could loosely screw in the fitting. And applying enough jb to erect a lifesize replica of the Eiffel Tower.

By most informal i thought you were saying most informative, then i read the thread.
I'd show up if it wasn't a 4 hour drive.

can't make it- it's bday blow out here: Mom, Mom in law, daughter 1 and now daughter 2. We still need to do a dyno day here- late summer maybe? Something that equates to a <monster truck voice on> "MT.net NE vs. SE, Dyno Battle".

Looks like the weather on Saturday is going to suck anyway.

Perhaps we should either reschedule this one or schedule an additional day, but with enough advance warning.
