nah no fees. only thing i'll probably ask to bring your own food and drinks or potluck or something. and if you have your own tools, bring them. i don't think one set is enough to work on multiple cars at the same time especially with jacks/stands/etc.

hmm this DIY meet is starting to get bigger lol i only have enough driveway space for 4 cars. that's if you need to jack the car up and do stuff. otherwise, i have room for probably 3-4 more for other non-jacking up stuff

well depending on how many people need stuff done, i think i would have to limit it to do one DIY project per car. that way we can get everyone involved rather than having one car benefitting (that should be my car lol). we'll probably need a photographer too, need to get some more people to start doing this lol

anyone have hookups on tires? cause i really need them lol

that's fine, as long as no one steals anything or breaks my stuff and not pay for it.

Anyone got the peake scan tool? Service Engine Soon Light came on, and when I connect the OBDII in it reads error so I think peake tool is my only choice. I'm pretty handy with car stuff. I've done a lot of things on all sorts of cars. Except stuff with diffs and transmissions (other than changing the clutch/flywheel)
