(1) Lief's got his knuckles pretty clean , but trying to decide if they're clean enough.

(2) Ricardo's birf, balls and cage are spotless and ready for reassembly.

(3) Steve consults the manual on reassembling Ricardo's birf.

(4) Matt has some pretty grungy wheel bearings! Good thing they're getting cleaned and repacked!

(5) Lief repacks his knuckles.

Thank you to a bunch of people. Our organizers and hosts were excellent. The mentors were busy all day long. And at various points throughout the day I had a chance to say hi to between 20 and 30 of the club members. That is an impressive turn out. :risingsun

I learned a bunch, but just as important as the learning my confidence in my truck and my skills/ability to take care of it jumped allot higher yesterday.

On the tools end of things - Leif, I appreciate you letting me hold onto your 12mm 1/2 inch socket all day and Ige the 52mm socket was like gold. I have someones wire cutting pliers (black handle) - check to see if you are missing yours.
