Re: Fellow Zooker needs Help!
I'm up for helping anyway possible. I would gamble to say that many in the tri-state area may be able to help, especially swinging a wrench.
We could lift the Kick. Prolly all we can do is some springs or spacers or sumthin'.
Are either of the Sammy's buildable? We could VERY easily build a kick up big in a weekend. And finding donations of old Sammy parts might be easier. If we could merge the 3 trucks, we could:
SPOA (and fab the stuff needed. Hey, I got an old Z-link!)
Use the rear Kick axle and make a Hybrid.
Install the Kick gears in the alxes.
Weld the rear diff (unless someone donates an old locker or spool).
And install the 16v. And the P/S (Bob and I can mount the box without a kit).
And even the Kick seats. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Yeah, he could have a very nice truck to bring to the event. We could organize into teams (the 1.6 install team, the axle team, the P/S team, the SPOA team, etc) and we could bang the thing out fast.
To EVERYONE: I met BJ and he was a very, very nice guy. Always seems like bad things happen to nice people. BJ's cancer has spread extensively. They treat one type only for it to rear it's ugly head in another organ. In other words, he may be fighting a losing battle, but we hope and pray just the same.
This is a quality of life issue, and similing, laughing and overall and keeping spirits/hopes high is the ost important thing he can do. If we all did just a little bit, we might help a Zooker feel better and get better.
I'm in. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
