We are here to help, catch up with folks we haven’t seen in a while and meet new owners. Please come and introduce yourself.

The work happens roughly on a first come, first served basis with your help and the parts you bring. The help may be holding a light, grabbing a tool, or turning wrenches with us if you’re so inclined.

There are some jobs that take more time and/or require specialized expertise or tools from some of our members that may be busy working on another job, or they may need to be performed at a particular station, so jobs may be bumped based upon availability of resources.

Nobody likes working on a hot R, especially underneath or in the engine compartment. If you have driven in and are planning to get some suspension, frame or engine bay work done, please raise your hood when you arrive.

Please check-in with me or Jeannie when you arrive, so we know you are here and what work you’d like to get done. I know this may seem obvious, but we’ve actually had a person or two show up, hang around a while and then get frustrated when we didn’t work on their R, and we thought they were just visiting.

Type of work that can be done:
  • Diagnosing issues
  • Reading codes and talking about what they mean. We don’t “just clear them”, as they will come right back.
  • FOB programming
  • Changing ignition switches
  • Installing parts from Simple Engineering, e.g. stiffening plates, cross members, radiator supports, shocks, cooling fans, cooling hoses, surge tanks, Muth Mirrors, lift struts, roof struts, spare tire kits, etc.
  • Serpentine and A/C belt changes
  • ABS module removal - I can do the soldering repair, but won’t do it there so it will have to be reinstalled after you get back home.
  • Water pump replacement
  • Shifter bushings, lower or upper.
  • Stepper motor replacement & cluster LEDs - Please let us know in advance, so we can have enough steppers and LEDs on hand.
  • Window adjustments
  • Door handle repair
  • Door module installation
  • Headlight LED installation.
  • LED kit installations
  • Battery installation/swap
  • etc, etc.
Things we don’t do:
  • Change your oil
** This list is subject to change based on members that sign up and volunteer their help.

Debbie and I will chime in as a "Firm Maybe".... We have some personal conflicts to clear in order to be gone for a week, but we have it on our calendar. We will know for sure by March 1st if we are good to go, or have to stay home.

The Texas group is like family to us and we really will do our best to make it.

We'll be driving the black "parts delivery vehicle"....

Dale and Sandy are planning on being there. We're good with bar b q and or mud bugs. Ole blue needs front shocks. I have front Bilstein's shocks and moog mounts from SE. If time allows I would also like to replace window track felt. I have the Velcro. Sandy and I are willing to help with whatever needs to be done, just need some guidance.

I put you down for 1 BBQ and 1 mudbug. If it is really 2 BBQ or 2 mudbug, please let us know. Generally there is enough for “a little stretching to the other side fo the table”, but we’d like to make sure we are not way too short on something or way too much.

Hmmm....

★☆★ ~ WOW, I can't believe another year has flown by and WINNIE TECH DAY is here again!!! Well, I'm hoping that Madeline & I haven't worn out our welcome yet and Lester and Liz will let us come back once again!! We love "schmoozing" with all of the knowledgeable Texas Fanatics. -- :unsure:

As of now the Black Knight doesn't need anything so maybe I could help out being a "step n' fetch it". We both love that Texas BBQ, too!! -- :love:

And again this year, a big Texas 'Thank You' to Lester and Liz for their generous hospitality. --
(y):cool:

Is the Black Knight ”tidy”?
…as I recall you were getting relatively close for front brakes?

Did you ever do a leak check? :oops:

=========================
WOW, Robert ((@TXNSSR)), your memory is superb. I do remember you did let me know about my front brakes a couple of years ago when you & Terry ((@TLM)) were installing my new Bilsteins. But I really haven't put many miles on at all since then due to my ongoing eye surguries. As far as a "Leak Test", could you be more specific?? What should I have leaked?!?!??! - :eek::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
