Wrench Fest 2012

Post by RTCHAS on Sat Jan 28, 2012 11:58 pm

How do I start! Got up 7:30 had garage ready as J pulled in at 8:30...Maggy went under the knife @ 1/4 to 9 and Marko rolled in with His Bro and 2 Dozen I love you I love you Donuts/Bagel's.. Laughing Yummy...Donuts. Bill arrived right behind them with a trunk full of tools..

We rolled J's Maggy off the lift at 9:45 and he rolled it into a Mud Bog on my front lawn Rolling Eyes around 10... Razz affraid Trey showed up in the Ram removed J from my front lawn.. cheers

We started wrenching on Marko's Charger after rolling the lift out into the drive and thrashed on it most of the day with all hands involved scratch

Tim and John showed up and proceeded to destroy a nice set of billet center cap's lol! Thanks to Bill for saving Tim's BAT Cap cheers

After we got the rear buttoned up Tim was next with a full SRT swap Frt struts and springs and rear shocks and springs. We installed it and J's old Black wheels with Tim's Pretty center caps it looked wicked after the drop and new donut's. I love you .Oh and replaced a tip on the exhaust too.. Cool

Then Claude pulled next too J's Lawn Turf marks and Put 2 more stripe's in my nice soggy lawn so it now looks like High school punks did donut's I love you on my front lawn with divot's all over the place!! FML Evil or Very Mad Claude got stuck but spun up enuff of my grass to get out with out the use of Trey's Ram lol.. Thanks Claude!

While all that went down we had Claude helping Marko find a way thru downloads and Claude's extensive knowledge of the Predator to get a update on Marko's Charger cheers

John and Tim played Nascar special Olympics with a 1 hr pit stop Razz Its all good guys the more ya wrench the faster ya get. But Dam John I wish I had an after shoot of your Charger it looked kickass after wheels! cheers

And last Trey and that BIG F'n Ram went up as Hi as the lift could go under duress and with little room to spare on all 4 corners and got a tailpipe trim and a rattle fixed !

We pulled the lift back in the Garage and went to grab a few brew's and some grub at the Bar next to me by 6:30 and now I'm SPENT!!! Was Great to hang with all you Guy's and nice to Meet Jim and John hope we didn't scare ya off..
Lets try and do this or SOMETHING again soon before Car Show season maybe carts again? Bowling? Plan it and Im there Guys! And Marko thanks for the I love you Donut's lol!

Had a blast! And sorry about the yard Chas! I feel a little better knowing Claude helped rearrange your front yard too...

So the Flowmaster's definitely have some drone right around 2200rpm. I think it will be a pretty easy fix. Since I hate the Flowmaster tips anyway, I'm thinking of adapting the Edelbrock reso's and tips to the Flowmaster system. This will kill 2 birds with one stone, drone and fugly tips!

I finally cleaned my car this weekend and got my Vipers mounted. Unfortunately the driver side rear rubbed really bad and the fender chewed up the tire a bit on my test run. I had to do some quick fender rolling last night to get some clearance. It appears the entire cradle is shifted to the drivers side by at least .5 or .75". I"ll have to take some measurements under the car and move the entire cradle.

Here's a $hitty pic of the Vipers mounted up... I'll get better pics soon.

I was told the previous owner was a woman... So not sure if this is who you were thinking about Chas.

Yeah, it had less than 5k miles on it when he bought it in October of 2010. Think he only paid 23k for it too... I was a little jealous :-(

Yes, that is Scott's Wife's old ride (Serioussam) He is on here from time to time has a Yellow Rumble bee ram. I bet it never broke the tires loose once.. Shame you didnt grab it.. They went to Ford traded it for the Edge before Carlisle last summer. So it sat on the lot for a few months..I bet your wishing you found it first.

I definitely wish I had found it first. I'm sure he still hasn't broken the tires loose either. One day I'll get him to come out and meet up with the group. Maybe we can get him to reunite it with the original owner!
