What time do people show up i drove by but didnt see anyone


Everyone left at about 2pm so we put our other cars away and snuck off to get something to eat! Sorry we weren't home. I know I said till 8pm but we really thought what we had was going to be it. We are home now, so if someone shows up, just give us a ring 927 4127. We moved into the house for now. LOL This was my first time hosting and I wasn't sure how well it would go and wasn't sure of a good cut off time. I think from now on we will go with a 10am to 3pm, but if things don't get done by 3, no biggie. I think the 8pm cut off was a bit extreme! LOL Again, sorry for not being here when you came by.

Here are the pics. Sorry, some are blurry. My iPhone sucks! LOL















Gias had to stay outside! LOL Just kidding, actually Lonny could have pulled in but it would have been hard for him to open the door.



Hope everyone had a good time. I know I did! Very Happy

Tech Day ran kind of later then expected! LOL Very Happy





We were on our way to the NAG meet, (my first time going lol) and all of a sudden Andy our leader pulled off of Madison onto Primrose, well they got out and pushed his bug there. Had to have hubby come get his car. We brought it back to the house and luckily I had a spare drum. Put the new drum on and he was good to go!! Very Happy

Want to throw out a special thanks to Chris in the red double cab! He was going down Madison and I guess he saw us because after a few seconds of me seeing him go by, he was pulling up on the street we were on. That is a cool thing to do when one sees other VW's broke down! I see it from time to time on MC's and I was really thrilled to see a feller dubber do the same thing! Very Happy

No, we were running late to begin with, and I think once we got the bug fixed everyone was ready to call it a day!

Yep Matt Front end when turning. If I turn to the rt and lean into it no rub, if I sit up straight it rubs. Same deal turning lft if I have someone in the seat. How hard is it to lower the rear. I have never looked into that opperation. Pics are up in the tech day section.

It's pretty easy to do. It would only take a couple of hours or so. Plus one to two hours with beer. Very Happy

Will this adjustment require parts or tools only. If its tools and parts.....what parts do I need?

Yes like Lita said Truck. Drag. Fall. Don't try to stop a hit and run driver....not smart. Stitches in the dome...road rash all over and a broken ego...LOL all is good though. I am well taken care of Smile. Big shout out to Kim and Bobby for hosting Tech Day (twice for my Betty) and especially for the tow....I will post some pics later....those if you on my FB have already seen them Smile thanks to Dewey and Lita for doing my dirty work for the day.
