  • Help! need a "parts pony expess"

    Would anyone be willing to help convoy some parts from anywhere between Indianapolis IN and Troy NC.
    The story; I'm buying a bumper from eBay and the seller will not ship. Zander is in need of some pistons an rods I have. So he is picking up the bumper from the seller for me on return for the pistons and rods.
    The problem; Zander can easily pick up the part, but meeting half way is out of the question for him due to time. I really don't want to drive the 9 hours to the NC border too meet and exchange parts.
    The favor; if anyone would be willing to help intersect I have a bunch of stock parts, to offer in return for the help this weekend. Please let me know what you have in mind.

          OK, count me in depending on timing.
          I'm in Ravenswood, WV, about a 45 min north of Charleston, WV.
          Meaning, I'am close to I64 and I70.
          So could be involved with moving bumper between VA and IN.
          How soon do you need this to happen?
          This weekend is not good for me, but if he picks up the bumper and can get it to someone else who can get it up/near hear I can take westward during the week.
          See what we can workout.

                    An acquaintance has a friend named Zander so it saved it.

                      Can you just drive to NC for FM5 and pick up the bumper yourself? You could put it on that weekend.

                        Well, I can't drive to FMV without a front bumper on? It has to be moded and have to make it clear the intecooler I'm installing. The engine he is building needs to be done ASAP

                          Oh, gotcha. Not just a simple bolt-it-on situation.

                            I'm also in the potential line of travel, but this weekend is also not good for me. I have two prior commitments and some cleaning to do for a new hot water heater (yep, I'm taking cold showers right now).

                            Through the week in the morning would be better. Or perhaps next weekend?

                            I could meet John and make his trip a bit shorter.
