    Can someone help me - Mission Accomplished!

    I plan to replace the rear exhaust on my E30, and both of my "helpers" have family crises, making it impossible for them to attend.
    Hopefully there'll be a member present with a moment or two to help me out!?

    Greg/M-technik-3 met me at Ft. Belvoir this AM and the swap went simply. We spent more time talking than wrenching and still finished in less than an hour. Thanks for the great idea!

    I'll be able to give you a hand. I wanted to come, but haven't come up with a good DIY project for my e46.

    Perfect! Any word on rescheduling, or returning our registration fee?
    Thank goodness for this forum, or I'd have been there at 0830 to allow the exhaust to cool down. An e-mail to the registrants might have been helpful.

    I'm in NY this weekend and got a call from Alan so I updated the website and posted something here incase someone missed the homepage.

    I have no further details.

    Steven,
    Thanks, again, for the heads up. It was at the homepage that I read of the cancellation. I have all my parts for the next time!
    Always appreciative of your efforts,
    John

    I believe Alan tried to phone all confirmed attendees and he did send out an e-mail. Maybe it ended up in your bulk folder?

    Not that I found. I'm more disappointed that the event was cancelled than not being personally notified - the forum accomplished that, and I know what's involved with such an endeavor/event.
    You MUST realize the pressure one's under when the repair is to the WIFE'S car!!

    John, Our auto skills shop is open from Tuesday-Sunday. If you want to come out to Belvoir I can give you a hand with it. A in my own garage or B in yours or C in the skills shop. They have a lift at $3.50 an hour. I have air and tool, do you have all the new hardware? Because using older hardware bites.

    I appreciate the offer, and will keep that option in mind! My dad is retired USAF and gets to Belvoir for commissary/shopping (he's in Burke).
    I'm going to check with one my contacts here in town to see if I can use one of their lifts for the job. I'd prefer not to have to work from jack stands - that's where the timing of the DIY was perfect!
    I have the new rear exhaust, bolts & copper nuts, flange gasket and hangers.

    Yeah, I have to do a shake down of my Neu M3. I bought the one off of craigslist. Let me know either way.

    You much lead time do you or the shop require? I didn't know how many knuckleheads were trying to work on their cars in the midst of the holiday season.
    I'm looking jammed up for this Saturday, but may have this Sunday and next Saturday.
