Los Angeles GTG

I was thinking of having a GTG at my dad's house, preferably sometime in January, I was thinking the 4th or the 5th would be nice, short notice, but should be good to have a GTG to ring in the start of the new year.

We could do detailing, just talk cars, Have a Barbecue, Do some mods or installs of upgrade items like steering wheels, lights etc, do some photo's, or whatever else.

I'd enjoy doing a detailing GTG, with a barbeque, some brews, and photos of course, plus I would enjoy getting to install or mod some stuff or watch it being done, but with me, I'll want to take a part in it.

If anyone is up for it, or has other dates in mind, I'm all up for it.

Reply here please and lets get this organized. We could meet in a public place too, but I enjoy having people come to my dad's house, barbecue, and hang out.

Alon

Hmm. It definitely sounds like fun but I'm not sure I can make it that weekend...

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it, I'll be spending the month in So Arizona.

Hopefully the internet has made it to the Sonoran Desert and I can find a place to log on and see what's happening here at the Shop. If this comes to pass, do post pictures so I can claim to have attended, at least virtrually .

Might could possibly make it for the 4th. As far as mods or upgrades go I should have my my replacement soft top by then and would anyone be experienced in soft top replacement? Big job but I plan on doing it soon. Could use all the help I need.

Cool

Actually, I'm somewhat in the area (near Lancaster), and was planning on heading home on either the 4th or 5th. I could do the 4th, although earlier would be better. That is, if you're willing to accept a diesel guy who doesn't know a thing about detailing

I'm interested, depending on the day...the 5th and later is definitely impossible for me, though; my girlfriend starts back at school on the 6th so we both have to be home in the Bay Area by then.

Well if you guys want to do it the 4th, lets make it so.

Detailing, barbecue, good friends, good beer, good times. sound like a plan to everyone?

Works for me...maybe I can learn how to take care of my paint

Am I the only oil-burner who's interested?

Call me ignorant, but is there anything that should be brought along?

Makes me wish my family didn't have to move from Glendale.
You guys don't realize how much Ohio sucks :p but I know other parts of the country can be worse.

The 4th sounds good to to me.

Just set up a time.

Sure hope it doesn't rain. This El Nino is killing us.

Question

Has a decision been made on a time yet? If not, I'd vote for somewhere between 10am and noon...

Also, where exactly is this? If it'd be possible to get directions from the 405 freeway, it'd be really appreciated.

Thanks! And, again, is there anything that should be brought along?

I just found out there is a GTG in Santa Barbara on the 4th, so we may push this one back a bit.
