    Anytime on Saturday is fine for me, at the above mentioned location. I will bring brake line tools. I have a full-shop's worth of tools in a storage unit, not far off of The Island, in case we are missing anything. We will need regular hand tools, combo wrenches, sockets, etc.

    Hi,

    Oldwagonlover, who is taking the lead on this project, has informed me that they will be working on the truck at a different location in Alameda. Once I have the exact address, I'll let you know.

    Stay tuned for more details!

    Thanks everyone,
    BDL

    Sounds good. I have a lil' box full of hand tools, it's been enough for me to do quite a bit. I can throw some extras in my car on the way over. How about jack and stands? I have plenty of those too.

    If there is any last minute needs on Friday, let me know I can stop by the shop on the way over in the morning. It's on my way across the bridge.

    Already had plans to go to Eagle Drags this Saturday and have committed to driving someone out there.

    Keep us posted if you guys don't finish this weekend. Coming over Mon-Fri from 3:30 pm to 8:00 pm works best for me. Maybe there will be some finishing up to do after this weekend.

    I stumbled on this today. I don't have a ton of knowledge, but I can turn a wrench. I'd be happy to pitch in Saturday, if you don't think you've already got people climbing over each other. Not too far away in Menlo Park. Ron

    Here is the latest update for everyone who is interested in helping out. I have arranged a group of people to meet at 710 Buena Vista ave. in Alameda, CA 94501 this Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m. until about 5 p.m. I believe that should do it.
    If you want to help out give me a call (510) 427-0488 or show up.
    Thanks,
    Joe Phillips

    My wife just took a look at this thread and almost came to tears. So was so surprised and touched by your generosity and caring. She's an amazing woman and you'll be able to meet her Saturday! She's looking forward to meeting you all.

    I'll just meet you there Ed, I tried calling but you're walking around a graveyard I think.

    I talked to Eric, will be going there after. LSRU talk.

    See you all in the morning. Do we have what we think we'll need? I'll check here in the morning before I head out, let me know, I can stop by the shop.

    You guys really are doing some amazing stuff! I was planning on making it out, but my body and my alarm clock had a disagreement and I was not excited to hop on the bus. Calling me lazy is not far off.

    Bigdaddy, (or anyone else for that matter) please let me know if you guys need any more help like this- I hate to say it but I think I am probably better at cleaning than most everything else. That said I am not totally useless! I am glad to see Joe will be cruising his dad's truck, that's what really counts.
     
  29. WOW guys...This is mind blowing....It is the way things use to happen back in the old days.
    HAMB members rule!
