Thumbs up I can help you replace your LCP parts: the list of volunteers.

This was ĎPilotjohnSí idea. Here is what he wrote,
ďOnce the new parts are available from Vans, I would like to help a new builder replace the parts in their quick build kit. I figure if a bunch of us repeat offenders could offer up a few weekends, we could do a lot of kit rebuilds in a short time. Maybe borrow a hangar somewhere in a central part of country. Heck, repeat offenders usually have an efficient way to get there.Ē
Iím starting a new thread for this wonderful idea on the chance it can grow organically to include many areas around the country/globe. A link to this thread will be on the front page starting Monday.

Iíll start the list with my location:

Dallas, TX area. You can bring your parts to my hangar or Iíll come to you. You can use my tools or I can bring some to you.

Who else is in? If you can volunteer, please reply to this thread with your city, state in the subject line.


PS: If we can, please letís just limit this thread to a list of people who can help, not steer off into other topics.

I cannot be, nor will I be, held responsible if you try to do the same things I do and it does not work and/or causes you loss, injury, or even death in the process.

Iím also in the tri-state / Cinci area and am glad to help. Either come to your place, or work on some parts at mine @ HAO. We have several RV builders here, and while Iím not volunteering their services, I know I can get help if needed.
