Default Project Beginnings (MN Guys..Looking for your input)

The plan is in action. Pic'* coming...specially if Randman is near the camera.

Last night the Randman cruised into the yard with a slightly leaking white 1990 Bonneville. The garage cleaning was completed, a little rearrangement happened and it'* now happliy tucked away indoors.

Prep work is over... it'* time to go

MN guys...chime in if we are missing something.

We've got:
Wireless router and two laptops w/wireless built in
Desktop pc in the house
Beer stocked in fridge (Hey Randman...please put more in the fridge...someone drank our beer last night) Ok...we got beer though
Tools, jackstands, creeper, all the good stuff (between the two of us...we shouldn't be missing anything)
Radio
2 Camera'*
Donor parts ....boy are there parts...
Old lights from the basement moved to the garage....Got LIGHT!
Did I mention beer? Got BEER
Cfoote sounds like he'* in for a couple of beers or turns on a wrench.. Got help!
Compressor and air tools (I said we had tools...hehehe)
Manuals for both years

Second garage bay will be used to parts etc once we get involved

And we got pics...but they are on camera...

I'm home!
Ok..we were gonna do this project out in the woods in case it turned out bad...but then decided to make the Frankenville at my place
I've got a small garage and barely room to work..but we'll make it happen
