PostSubject: Work shop??   Fri Mar 16, 2012 4:51 pm

I was thinking about mod days in general, and the opportunity to show others how to do repairs. I am not sure if this makes any sense, but what if every mod day, we have a "hands on" how to for everyone to learn a repair like Opti replacement, or bonnie install, or like I will be doing, another blazer console install. This way, those who watch will learn how it is done, and then can do them when they are ready to.
A few years back, I did Rich's intake manifold, and it could have been a learning experience for others rather than just a repair. I could even learn something, as someone might have input to improve upon the repair, or mod.

So does this sound like something worth trying, or would it cut into the BSing time too much?

Thoughts? Input?

I'm all for it, since I don't know how to do most of this stuff.

If anyone wants to give a window roller replacement clinic, I can supply the patient... Very Happy

I know if I saw you doing something I couldnt, I'd be all over it.

That being said....GREAT idea

I'll provide my car & a list of repairs for you to instruct the next 3 months

I think we really need to learn how to remove headers and a Y-pipe from a 3rd gen Firebird. That should be the first one. Smile

But seriously, I am kinda surprised to see the positive response, but that is good. I thought I was just over thinking things again. scratch study

I would be up for video taping. It would be fun. If I had 5 left over Guinness before starting it would be down right insane. affraid bounce drunken LOL J/K

I'm in. The console is a great start for most. I've got sequentials to finish too, but I suck at electrical. Later on, ill have new prings to put in the front...another thing on many lists I bet.

I'd like to see how to do front spring swaps.

I have a modified c clamp that helps a bit with the windows rollers. Let me know if I should bring it.
The hard part is pulling the door panel.

I think Opti & tune related is in the top 5. I've seen other Opti video's and they are good on one hand but I see a lot of holes in the method.

I think its a great idea. Arrow
I need to replace my leaking engine oil lines. I have the lines. My first attempt failed. After doing my pinion seal I ran outta daylight. I couldn't free the nuts in the radiator and didn't want to break anything.

FYI;
other repairs in the works, rear window roller, egr tube removal, lower rear control arms, window tinting,

just a few idea's! Wink

Opti would be excellent; I'm getting the same hesitation at light throttle that Mega was having recently...
