    My K-5 needs some work done, i.e. tranny rebuild, suspension work, axle work, brakes....etc...and it will be a loooong time before i am able to fix it myself...


    So I think that everyone should gather up their spare parts they have laying around their garage, and all come over here and we could have a big "fix-it" party...:D :hack: :weld: :grind: :1zhelp:

    Then in another month or two (gotta have time to collect spare parts again) we could all head over to someone elses place and have a "fix-it" party for them!:wink1:


    Well at least I think its a great ideal:waytogo: :whistle: :thumb:

    That is a friend, and on the gas...well you do it out of the kindness of your heart. Knowing that some fellow ck5'ers are down and out, and knowing that a good deed deserves another..kinda of a "pay it forward" deal, I don't have many spare parts laying around but i do have a nice quadrajet, and a few emission pieces and a few interior parts, that i would bring to the next "fix-it" party :D... But hey gas is somewhat cheep here, so thats a plus!


    and as your sig says:

    NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE THE POWER OF A BROTHERHOOD

    Well, you are about 1900 miles from me, so for about $245 in gas I'll be able to drive out and back. I'll let you know when I leave...

    I asked about the avatar because she looks familiar, have you posted pics of her before?

    well obvisiously if you lived that far away from someone, you wouldn't make it to this "fix-it" party...you would go to one near you:wink1:

    Living on base here in the dorms, my friends and I do something similar about once or twice a month. It's nothing really arranged, just happen to see some guy working on his truck and we all grab our tools and walk over to help him.

    Last two "fix-it" parties we had we swapped a 454 into a 1500 C-truck, and removed the front driveshaft from a ford ranger so a guy could drive it back to texas.

    Silly ford used red loctite on the u-joint straps, I broke 3 T-27's on that thing.

    i think if you can guarantee that avatar girl and her friends will be there to help in bikini's then you get more response.

    gotta give us some incentive.:wink1: lol
