Work GTG for April ar early May?

Just throwing this out there for consideration. I have a few smaller things I need to accomplish on my truck before spring gets too far ahead of us (yeah, right, as it continues to snow...). I have new headlight housings and HID lamps to put in, refix my rear door lock, move my secondary tranny cooler, and a couple other things that escape me at the moment.

Thoughts and suggestions on a date and location?

I've got a couple of things to take care of on the Bonneville. The fuel filler neck needs to be sanded and rust proofed, power steering hose, rear window regulators and fuel pump.

4/20,4/21,5/18,5/19 are the weekends I'd suggest.

I need do a clutch in the foci..........but I'll do that some other time. No need to waste good truck time on that.

I think there are a few things I could find to tackle. When are you thinking?

I'm used to being the odd one out. My last Ford liked my wallet a little too much. Figured I'd try a change of pace. I don't have much luck with vehicles, so we'll see how this pans out.

Thinking that realistically early May sometime works out best for me anyway. Hopefully I can make the GTG if we can agree on a date that works for most.

I think the first weekend in may would be the only one I could make it to. Lots of weddings and bachelor parties for the rest of May.

I will do some checking and see what weekends I have open. I know the first weekend in May is busy for me but make it whenever I will be there if I can. I don't really have anything to do on my stuff right now.

Edit: If it falls on a weekend that works for me. You are more then welcome to have it out here at my shop although I am not sure who wants to drive all this way anymore with a shop available in the cities now.
