Tell me more about the SEC. Rust bucket, raged out, or what? I can probably be there, how is the tool supply?

No, no date is set yet. We are meeting at Crazy Ray's junkyard in Mt Airy MD tomorrow morning at 9am if anyone wants to join us for some parts hunting.

Not sure if the SEC will be stripped this go round or not, maybe only the SD. And yes, over on its side it will go, need the rear end and maybe control arms out of it.

It's November. Any thoughts on when you'd like to do this, John? Or are you just waiting until temps drop into the teens before you do it? I'm game, but just need a little advanced notice.

Yeah we were talking about it a bit yesterday I just need to sit down with the calendar and see what I got planned already. Maybe a pre-day trip to the store to pick up the shelving and storage boxes.

Well, I'll be there. My motives are a bit self-serving. I figure that if I can learn how things come apart, I might have a better change of getting them put back together. Besides, I always enjoy hanging out at your place.

When is Powerpig ever going to get one of those barbeque wagons to hook onto the back of his Maserati so that he can properly cater John's car stripping parties?

Sniff -- I hate to see old Bruno (my former 300SD) go to the yard, but if you wait until it is above freezing I will make the time to be there. There are still some buts I can use off it

Yeah, the holidays are over now. When are we going to do this, John? We just need an old oil drum to build a fire in to warm them up when our fingers get too cold to function.
