my buddy, Steve and i put on a tech day for the rest of the club, last sunday. we wanted to go over regular maintenance, body work, an engine tear down, brake work, and whatever else someone brought to the table.
the day started off well with Steve attempting an inaugural burnout in the new shop. his bug was too low and got too much grip, even after we poured a half gallon of bleach on the ground. he burned up his clutch. no worries, we had that fixed and cleaned up in 30 minutes. having a parts stash really helps out in a pinch, not to mention his bug is a volksrod so there was nothing in the way of dropping the engine.
we tore down Marvin's engine from his Baja. discovered why he's leaking so much oil, a cracked head. so, there a $300 fix for the old man.
my girl's bug needed some rust repair so we decided that she should help us doe some work to it.
we adjusted Chris' steering box and ate some BBQ and found ourselves unsatisfied. what else could we do?
so i pulled in my 60 and we hacked off the front suspension. tore it down, cut it up, installed some adjusters, and mounted it back on.
and my brother snapped this photo as i was sitting up from trying to pull the 5 reflectors off the underside of my car. of course Steve just sits there and doesnt tell me.
*edit, i look drunk as hell! not to worry though, its just my grimace of pain. thats the face you see when i tinge those broken vertebrae*
sorry for the quality of the photos, they were from my brothers camera phone.
