Default 80 Series Mod Party

In a topic started in Treeroot's thread about his new 80 and things he's doing to it, Uncle Ben has offered to bring electrical parts and his skills required to make several worthwhile mods to 80s should we get something like that going as a group. I am offering to host such a gathering at my northwest Denver home and some Saturday seems to be the best for most of those interested. The water temp gauge and auto-up window mods are the two most talked about so far and other suggestions will be appreciated. Uncle Ben has requested that we wait a bit to let the holiday upheaval die down a little. I'm in for both mods how about you? Since it would be "light" mechanicing, a few beers while modding wouldn't be out of the question.

I have a aftermarket temp gauge, but might go for the window mod

I'm in for both- temp gauge and auto-up window! I'll finally fix that D light, too.

The D light fix is easy. Mine fixed itself on a really hard landing. Now I need the bent axle tube mod...

I'll get Jerry to get in some cluster bulbs for those who would like a bright green D again...

Can you ask Jerry to see if he can find an FJ Cruiser grill emblem for me. Just the Toyota part. Last round he wasn't able to find the part number for just the Toyota. I would hate to go to the dark side

Cowboy bob has to go!

If we get an assembly line going we can crank this stuff out fast! Couple folks R&Ring, a couple folks cleaning contacts, someone to be the soldering assistant and of course someone playing beer gopher. If someone wants to do the speaker upgrade contact Nakster or Romo to find what you need and get it ordered ahead of time. The biggest job is removing the cluster but once you know the tricks it goes pretty quick. I have plenty of diodes and resistors for both mods.

I have all the OE parts for a dual battery mod I can bring over if someone was interested. I also have the wash bottle relocation kit from Christo.

Should we move this to members only or should we make non members feed and hydrate us?
