Will be able to make it out. Have many leftover parts from my B35 swap, so I'll throw 'em in the trunk. If anyone's interested, I'm letting them go cheap.

Hey, people. I had a BITCH of a time today with changing my front brake disks. The little bolt that holds the disk to the hub stripped out on the driver side. #-o I had to drill it, then use an extractor, but the head came off and part of the edge of the bolt was still jamming on the disk. So then I had to pop off the hub nut dust cap to use my big 3 jaw puller to yank off the damn disk. Since that bolt just holds the disk to the hub while you bolt on the caliper and wheel, I just loctited in the remaining stub and used it to hold things aligned while I bolted on the wheel. I sure could have used a helper while I tried to put the damn caliper on. The disk flopping around was a pain in the ass. MAN what a drag! A one hour job became a three hour ordeal. :roll:

At any rate, I need a couple of the small bolts that hold the disk to the hub. If anyone has a couple (or can get them on the way there) I would happily take them off your hands. I will likely get there closer to 11:00, but I am SOOOOOO down for some good tacos. See everyone tomorrow.

Hello all. Today i fucked up my right eye by say hello to a rapidly movimg bungee cord. I recently returned from the er and will be ok, but cannot drive and need to stay in bed.

You all can still meet in the shop parking lot, i guess, since this wont make it to you all. Have a good meet if you do.

D: Really sorry to hear about your accident, but glad to know you will be ok. You will be missed!

I will be there this morning at 10:30 am, as originally planned. I hope to meet as many Bay Area Big Coupe members as possible.

Great meeting everyone, some beautiful examples showed up. As Brett mentioned, Dmitriy, we wish you the best with your eyeball.

Got just a couple pictures that don't cover all of the cars, but here's what I got:

A few more pics taken just before lunch.

Also, Tommy's car can been seen in the reflection off Pat's hood :D (In the first pic that Abaddon posted)

Very enjoyable 6er meet up! My first. Was great meeting all these "Legends of Big Coupe" and putting faces to Avatars. Thanks all!

Very sorry to hear about Dmitriy's eye when I arrived, obviously we are all hoping for s speedy recovery [-o<

Met some new people, renewed long friendships with others, it never gets old when there are a bunch of shiny 6ers inthe parking lot :P

And Ralph, FINALLY got rid of those seat skins :shock:

Yes, Jose now has them in his hot little hands :roll:

I see that Jose has already posted for a meet in June, please people, come on out and see how friendly we really are :lol:
