Well I may be working on it, it all depends if my parents have enough room in the garage for me to pull the car in. The car is being on in ORANGE COUNTY, not San Diego :D I want to get the fluids all drained and starting unhooks all the wiring, labelling it all so I know where it all goes back and getting the engine ready to be pulled. If I have the engine hoist/stand this weekend I may even pull the block. if anyone wants to stop by and lend a hand, post up here and let me know. It'll be a fun learning experience for those of us that have never dismantled and engine before.

Oops. We'll be there the 9th & part of the 10th too. Basically headed out there Thursday. Headed to LA for the Auto Show on Friday. Doing nothing Saturday, and headed back Sunday. At least thats tentative plans. As it looks right now, we'll be staying with Matt, so you'll know where to find me.

I'm not sure what I have going that weekend, but if I'm free I'll probably be working on the car, so that could work out. :D

Probably all day, start between 9-10, probably closer to 10 because I'm just lazy like that. I'll likely have some beer available for those of age :)

And Sabrina, its always nice to meet other club members so I hope you can make it, but how come you've never come with us to Vegas?!? :p

Cokonut, the car isn't in San Diego, is in the OC at my parents house. I have no garage down here so it has to be up there while its being wokred on.

Well it looks like I have a few guys from the 323 forums coming to help me pull the engine, so I prbably can't hold many more. Plus they said that we'll have it out in a matter of a coule of hours, starting around 12. If you still want to come by let me know, I just don't want to put my parents out by invading their house with a bunch of people.

The rebuild process will be much longer han the tear down will be I'm willing to bet, so if you can't get in on the destruction part of the project, you'll be more than welcome to come lend a hand put it all back together :)

I'm told it will take a mere couple of hours to pull the engine, so I would expect to be done around about 2 pm just so everyone knows.
