Friends Over For A Party In The Shop Yesterday

And there was some beer involved. And grease. Lots of grease.   LOL

That's a party I should have participated in. I'm going to do a labor swap sometime this spring or summer. A friend will replace my rear bearings while I wire up his Z with relays and LED headlights.

Frankly, I think I'm getting the better end of the deal. Of course, I'll probably also be grilling after we are done, so that does even it up some.

Haha! I should have put out an open invite, huh? Would have loved to have you over too!

By the time we got to number four strut, it was "almost easy". Once you figure out the best order of events and which spacers, drifts, and little bits and pieces to use... It's almost assembly line.

You stole that line from the movie, 'Grand Prix', right?

Haha! Not intentionally.  I don't think I've ever seen it.  Is there a line like that in there?

Ace F1 driver Pete's bored, cheatin' wife describes for him a party she had the pleasure of dropping in on, on some unnamed Greek island...  "... and there was ouzo.  Lots of ouzo.'

LOL  Nice.

I just finished cleaning up the aftermath of the party here. There was grease everywhere. Three people moving around the shop, all with globs of grease on their hands at different points in time, that stuff just spreads. I think I found all, or at least almost all of it by now.
