Default who wants to help?

so im feeling out what the response would be.
if youve read my other threads, you might be aware that im considering buying a junked SSEi to swap the engine etc out with mine. but ill need help.
i dont have the car yet, so this is hypothetical. but who would want to help?

i can supply a place to sleep for 1-2 people as well as any transportation necessary. i can supply food and a pool table. i wont supply alcohol or condone drunkenness (not my house). i live in Oklahoma City, OK (basically, central oklahoma).

perks: free food, free lodging, good times, and possibly free 2000+ parts to whoever helps.

drawbacks: no drunkenness and bad location

so hypothetically, who would be willing to help, assuming the schedules would work out?

pretty restrictive. (this is why im asking, rather than just annoucing it in a month)

no lift. tools would be basically anything people bring plusa pretty vast array of wrenches and sockets and so on. with about a $200 budget for new tools. cherrypicker, if needed, could be procured.

I so wish I could be in on this. But I do give you much respect for the no drunkeness clause.

I'll be there in spirit,

Tim
