Hank, I'm in Tacoma for the first couple weeks of June and am wanting to possibly do my brakes. I wanted to see the bug me video on that topic before I start. Is that too far south for local use?

Tacoma is like 10-15min away, most of the guys on this site are 2-3hr away  ;)
 what are you looking to do? just pads and adjust or replace everything?

I'm looking to basically familiarize myself with the "braking system", replace my rear pads/shoes, and adjust them since it pulls a little to the left if I brake hard. I had an inspection done when I bought the car and the guy told me I had like 20% left on my rear and that was a few months ago. I want to take a look at them myself and figure I might as well replace them while i'm down there.

I've also go mauals to help me but the visual sure helps.

I'm getting ready to put my headliner in and was wondering about borrowing the headliner videos. How do I go about that. I'm going to the spring meet. Can I hook up with somebody there if possible?

Thanks
Ken

Hey, Ken - The videos are at my house, and it looks like I'm not going to make it to Springmeet this year.  Maybe one of the guys heading down from Bellingham could be coerced into taking them down for you.  Also, why not have a work party to get your headliner in?  I know I would love to get some experience before I tackle my own!

Randy
Cheers,

Randy

I'm sending the discs down with Chris Kehoe (Goaliechris17).  He'll be driving a red bay window bus with a white driver-side door.  When you're done drop me a line and we'll figure out how to get them back up here.

Cheers,
