Here are some more pic's of the GTG. Note that Yaga1973 and friends were there but we didn't get their pictures.

This is the FTE banner, with our signatures.

Chris' bed loaded on Dad's Tk:


And, here's a link to more pictures: OK 2012 Fall GTG Album

But, here's some of what we did:
  • Got a pair of pallets screwed together and Chris' bed loaded on them upside-down. Then it was strapped to the pallet and loaded on the back of Dad's truck, being careful not to damage that bed in the process.
  • Ray got the old bearings off and the new bearings on his rear axle, and the differential flushed out and checked for backlash. When he was cutting the keepers on the axles they went off like gun shots and you should have seen the guys duck.
  • Bruno finished part of his project of building "posts" for the sides on his truck, to which he's going to add side boards.
  • Bruno's son Kris, a new FTE member, got a new project - motorizing a bicycle.
  • Jason got 95% of the welding done on my new exhaust system, with the last bit not done because we couldn't get the exhaust "Y" off due to interference between the tranny and exhaust flange/nut. I'll fix that - as soon as I rest up.

Looks like you fellas found plenty to do, and had a great place to do it. I can't see anyone throwing any tools, so you must have been successful in your efforts...either that, or the camera wasn't around to catch those moments.

Congrats on a successful chapter meet!

Thanks! We didn't have any tools thrown, although it did sound like shots were fired a few times.

Now if we could only convince Gary to let us bring beer next time we could add to the fun by making fools of ourselves.....

I had a great time! I wish we could have finished Gary's exhaust 100%. We got close though. Gary was an awesome as usual. Thanks Gary for hosting the GTG.

Welcome. Wish your project had gotten done as well. But, like mine you got quite a bit done.

And, please tell Jason thanks again - for both Chris and for me. Chris is very appreciative of his help loading the bed and for the ratchet straps. I'm VERY appreciative of the welding. Also, thanks to you for getting the pallets.

By the way, what comments did mom have when Kris came in with a motorized bike project?
