Looks like an awesome time and the weather looks great as well...

I'm still trying to nail down some dates... Can you pm me your time off the first week or so of October...

One other item, where did you order your lugs from and do they offer them in Red... I've seen several vendors that have them, and didn't know where you ordered yours...

Don't have a schedule handy, but I'll check when I'm back at work and let you know. Yes they have red, I got them off Ebay. Going to try them out this Friday, so let me check them out first and I'll let you know how they are.

Sounds fantastic... My physical therapist and I settled on three weeks of therapy prior to me driving that far in that short of time... so, then end of the month first week of October looks like it may be around that time... I'll adjust a bit as needed on your end... No hurry on my part as long as the weather holds and they dont release me to go back to work prior...

You be fine all through October as far as weather and the roads. It will be a great road trip from Texas to the Great White North and back again. Try and round up a few more C5'ers, Rickerbucks, Heliwrench and El Diablo for a meet and greet.

Now it's looking like a few showers are possible. Got to head out and put the slicks and skinnie's on just in case.

Well it look's like the diff build is starting at a good time. On the 4th pass Pumpkin came out of the hole half sideways smoking only the passenger side tire. I'd say that's probably it for that posi unit.

Too bad the DA was 488' and dropping like a rock. Pumpkin ran a couple of 12:40's before I smoked the posi. Need that gear change badly. Looks like I'll have to wait till next spring to lower that 12:35.
