Any DIY'ers in Central NY?????

Greetings All........

87' 300SDL

I've got the time, patience, talent, and enthusiasm (and a thirst for good micro-brews - Will bring Lake Placid UBU Ale - Nectar of the Gods).......

I was on a first name basis with LUCAS from my days of Triumphs and my last major marque was Saabs. Currently own #219 of 500 - 1994 900TC Commemorative Edition.

I no longer have the space and tools available to do a varity of tasks that need to be performed. Motor Mount, Trans. Mount, Shocks, Body (Drag Link??) Bushings, Fuel Line, etc.......

4 hands are better than 2 - and making new friends (outside of this keyboard thing) always tops the list.

Anybody near Central New York??????

Thank You

Stephen (Soon to be a young Grandpa for the 2nd time)

Penn Yan is close enough for me...............

I'm sure the car would love a jaunt in the country.

Time to head for Glenora and Swedish Hill (unless I just insulted you )

You've certainly got the right idea trying to locate local DIY support . . . I am steadily renovating a recently acquired barn/shop (1849 construction) that will provide me with ample space for working on my vehicles. Finding nearby MB enthusiasts will be the next goal.

No insult to me. Glenora is a nice place to visit. PM me before you will be in the area, to see if I am available.
I am not around much this time of year, I own a heating, A/C, and refrigeration buisness. Everyone wants their heat fixed now!
