Well see heres the thing. Its a fluidyne aluminum 3 core radiator and the side tanks and silver soldered to the fins so its very fragile right now. I'm gonna try some jb weld today. If i can slow it down i'll be there.

Hazmat was there at the last meet. All good people. Since youre drivin 4 hours out here i guess i have no choice but to make it huh

Ditto!


BTW, does anybody want to buy an 8.8 drum axle for $50 in good condition, ~ 115k miles? It's got new drum hardware, shoes, and springs, too. I think the anchor is slightly bent though.

Direct swap into any RBV.

If not, I'll leave the axle in Houston storage.

Sweet!! It was a fun meet. I love the pics, Yam. It was great meeting all of y'all, and I hope to see everyone again.

I wonder when Hazmat will post his pics, namely the group shot. His may be a little bit clearer.

The Quarterly Build Social was a good idea. I'll definitely head up next time. 6 Flags, new wheeling spots, and Medieval Times beckons me.

Keya laughed and rolled her eyes at your candid photo of her snoozing. Good jokes all around. :)

Not sure where the next one will be but I think we might try to find a central location and keep it in one spot. No guarantee though.

If everyone was happy with Sunday's location I'd be willing to go there again. Or maybe find a bar/restaurant in that area.
