    Not that I would actually know, but doesn't the week generally start on a Sunday?

    Of course I have no problem with meeting up on a Friday or Saturday for the 'plastigage party' :whistle:

    That'd be an interesting project, keep me posted on that please, i might consider helping out

    the 3d printed OCC bracket might be 2-3 months worth of wait. family member is on vacation, and it takes time to make a good one. Family member has to play around with the printer's settings to get consistently good prints.

    I'll ask my family member to first adjust the design a little bit so that the inner diameter isn't so tight on the OCC. my bracket snapped because it was too tight around OCC.

    I'm willing to wait. My OCC is currently being held in place with a piece of pipe insulation foam.

    Mine is held in place by a tin can and has been for awhile (about a year and a half):whistle:.

    But I went low and that setup works well(y).

    Hey guys,

    The headgasket job was finished last Tuesday (3/5) and the car has been running great. When is our next meet?

    Open to suggestions (y).

    Follow along here and put your name on the docket once we decide and then we’ll PM further details;).

    Got anything you want to do, or just there for social aspects:whistle:?

    We keep this thread pretty active though so keep it marked for future reference (y).

    We can always use another set of hands:).

    I see you’re in Gilroy so maybe someone in the South Bay like @Rebound could host:whistle:.

    @Pedal Logic has hosted in Lafayette before and I’ve hosted in Fairfield, so those are always possible too. Or do you want to host;).

    I can always make a stop and get some garlic along the way(y).

    The only members I know of in Fremont or further south are @Rebound and @jeff652 and Jeff is pretty busy these days;).

    But he and I should catch up at some point, so maybe he’d be amicable (y).

    Ok. Just had my oil changed after head gasket and catch can install. I'm really blessed because the oils level was still full after 5k miles! Car has 145k miles.

    Following this thread. If there's an install meetup, I'd love to join in! I have lowering springs, a rear sway bar, and fogs I need to install. I could do it alone, but if I could do it alongside some good company, that'd be better. :)
