Help with Suspension Installs

Anyone in the STL Mini Club pretty handy with car stuff? I posted in the FB page but I thought I'd check here as well. I've got a good bit of suspension stuff to do: FSB (the biggest challenge), spring/strut, and RSB that I'd like to get done around mid-March. Thought if anyone's interested, we could gather at someone's garage and knock it out in a day. Obviously free pizza and beer for anyone who's willing to lend a hand, as well as ride-alongs for anyone who attends any autox events I'm at. Let me know..

PM when you get a group together and a date set. If I am available on the day/time, I could lend a hand.
Where are you located?

FYI!

Spoke with my suspension tuner yesterday - I'll have the dampers to install by 3/22 - if anyone is available then, I'd sure love some help as I have no idea how I'm gonna tackle the FSB

I might have some time available (not sure of when my kids soccer game is). I am handy with a wrench but haven't done this install before..

Anyone else coming?

Where are we doing this? Garage or driveway?

Cheers

I posted on the FB page - I think a few guys - Jesse S., and they said they've done work from time to time at Danno's place, which has garage with an air compressor

Darn, that is just bit too far more me to travel to help. Sorry, I thought it would have been closer to STL.

Cheers and best of luck. I hope to catch up to you guys another time. I hope to see some Minis with some MODs running around.
