Got my shocks from FCP but they are in box at the airport while I’m in LA, if the Big Chill lifts this weekend I’ll get to them then

Hi,

Sounds good, cant wait to hear how this goes.
I might take another look at mine today too, but geeze it's cold out there this morning. I am reading 16 degrees F right now and i see the weather report says max 20 F today. Not nice.
I’ve been driving a Volvo long before anyone ever paid me to drive one.

If you drove me home from EWR I would get to this faster...

20F in the sun should be too hard for this job

Hi again,

Sorry, what is the "EWR" not sure i know what that is.
Yes very cold this morning. Only thing i hate worse is the high heat in summer.
I dont think i would want to do it in this cold either really. When i went out this morn i also got a big gust of wind. I think it was 12 deg F out there and with the wind maybe -6 F feel.

EWR...Newark Liberty Airport

When you travel a lot you actually identify places by airport code!

My favorite airport is SUX. It does suck as far as size and amenities go, but it is full of nice people and a little bit of a roller coaster ride on the landings... I believe they still do 2-4 flights a day.
