Special thanks to cas951 for his great hopitality and for toolpants resetting my airbag light. It was a fun to meet all of you and had fun doing a few hacks. Just for the record I vouch for Gerri, his picture with him sitting on the phone was part of hack activities. He was giving someone instructions on how to do the obd hack....not!!! hahaha we were all slacking off, he better hope his wife dont read this post because I think he was talking to her at the time as he said that "he was busy" : )

All you guys did a ton of work on my car - and didn't break a single thing I'm sure it was due to the rest from the union mandated breaks

The only break happened on my watch - when doing the OBC hookup, the connector (three: gray, blue, green) latches can break off easily, as I learned the hard way . We just used the glue-gun and put it together

Thanks again guys for all the hard work!!! Next time, we need to have a drive planned as part of this.

You guys are awesome. I've only met all of you today and I already feel as if I'm a big part of the crowd....

Must be due to the mandated union break from Ray.....

dedes those are nice pictures.

BTW: my neighbor really fell in love with Gerry's car. Specially the color combination. When she came home and everyone already left she was asking more questions about Gerry's car. She was disappointed as she wanted to see it again.

cas...tell you neighbor, thanks for all the compliments I'll make sure tell my wife about it. As most of the guys knows here, that it's the wifey's car and I'm just her personal driver who's responsibilities are to take the car for a spin, AX and backroads driving

Same here. All my wife does is drive it here and there but when it comes to gas, clean, detail and maintain it's all on me. She doesn't even know where the gas cap is located.
