This thread will be a open notebook on planning what tools you think we will need.
Also if you are volunteering or have a specialty tool you think we might need and can bring, post it here.
Thanks.

John, I know there is not a long tool list at this point, but as we get closer, can you consolidate the tool list and coordinate a sign-up? I don't want to pack any more then necessary, but am willing to bring tools that will help with the build. I just don't want to pack the same tools that someone else is bringing.

I know I need to get a new torque wrench and a battery for my drill.

John,
Any more thoughts about tools needed for the build? Have you gotten a torque wrench and batter for your drill yet? Is there going to be power available for us at the build site?

Need to ask Eric about power on my next phone call.

Any indication of power on-site? Also, I'm personally going to be leaving early it looks like... I don't want to carry anything extra, and surely don't want to double up on tools that someone else will be bringing to the build.

I've confirmed that Rayth will be coming to the show. He's volunteered to bring a multi-meter.
John, do you have any of the following:

-hole saw kit
-brake bleeder
-clutch alignment tool

Thanks,
I will pack my brake bleeder, and torque wrench, will also try and bring a work light, although it's been my experience that you can never have too much light once the sun goes down... which begs another thought.... lead chords, power chords, extension chords.... however you call them from where you're from. We'll want to bring some of those too.

I think any kind of plywood will need to be brought by someone who is trailering.

OK, John, I've got my brake bleeder and torque wrench set out with all the things that need to get thrown into the buggy tomorrow.

I've got a work light on my list of things to grab yet, but that's dependent on available room... then I'm off.
