***EDIT*** FINAL DETAILS BELOW ***EDIT***

It's about 90% sure I'll get the money for the BBM/Thermofan/EEC V conversion, so hopefully it'll go ahead. :)

Now the other part, I might need a bit of a hand doing it all. Well I'm sure I could pull it off but rather be sure.

Soooooo, who wants a shindig at my place? If you've got your own stuff to do you're quite welcome, wish I could say I've got a great set of tools but well, I don't. But you're more than welcome to use my driveway/the street. Should have space for at least 3 cars to be worked on in the driveway, one on the lawn if we need it and a whole street to park in.

And I'll whack the bbq on towards the end of the day if anyone wants to stay for a feed after.

Most likely be a Saturday (I've got the house to myself til about 6), late March/early April. I'm in Dingley, melways page 88. Any dates good/bad?

Oh, and if anyone who has a torque wrench and wants to bring it. you're MORE than welcome ;)

I have a torque wrench and live at the other end of the freeway (Frankston) :). Sounds like a good idea as I have never met anyone off these forums and I would like to do so and share some thoughts and ideas.

I like 3rd of April, gives me enough time to make sure the car's running right with the current mods as I still have a few bugs to work out....

Looks like it's the 3rd, I've just been informed it's my grandma's birthday the weekend before lol

And seems the 3rd is only my ex's birthday, it's clear.

Alright, I spose it's time to finalise the details!

Date;

Saturday 3rd April

Time;

Rock up about 10-11am, I'll be out working on getting the existing manifold/rocker cover off, so no need to wait for me. I'll whack the BBQ on and call it a day when it gets dark, you're free to stay or bugger off then.

PM me if you're coming for sure, just so I can get rough numbers for some meat. Sangers and hamburgers with some breed do the trick? I'll give you my mobile number/address via PM too.

Probably room for about 10 cars tops, don't wanna piss the neighbours off TOO much.

My tools list at the moment (I'll probably have more by then);

Complete screwdriver set
Complete metric/imperial socket set
Multigrips, pliers and the like.

Impressive hey? Not.

If anyone wants to do any mods, just gimme a yell what so I know if I'll need to grab anything special.

I'm still interested in attending. However, work is pending, but I will ask for that off tonight which shouldn't be a problem...

Can I ask how much all the parts needed for the thermofan/BBM conversion would set one back?

Also wondering whether anyone is interested in installing a set of superlows? ;) I'd love to learn.

Cheers.

I'd certainly like to attend, if only to meet some of you guys and to see Rmyers EA-EF MPFI conversion first hand :) I'm in Elwood, so no problems for me.
