    I wanted to send out a big big thankyou to Chuck for his help on Sunday morning.

    I overtorqued a bolt on my drivers side support guide for the strut and sheared it off. Asked Chuck for some advice and he said to stop by his shop on Sunday am as he was going to be there working on his JCW.

    I stopped by and we pulled the car apart to examine the damage. I had purchased some M8 bolts from the auto parts store and Chuck welded two of them in place of the OEM spline bolts to get me back on the road.

    I tried to pay him for the two plus hours of time it took but he refused of course.

    Chuck now is entitled to free food and drink at Tim Hortons every monthly breakfast for life.

    Thanks again Chuck!!

    Ha.....
    No problemo, it was fun.:D
    Look at most of all the other Silverbacks in the group, I'm at the age where I need to watch my caloric intake, but thanks for the offer anyway.

    Most weekends I'm down at the shop, so if these emergencies crop up, just send me a PM, I'm happy to help out.:Thumbsup:

    I was just about to say there are a lot of Chucks, Marks, Coopers and iPhone users in our club.

    Way to go Chuck!!! Outstanding :Thumbsup:

    My advice to you though, would be to stay away from the Timmy's doughnuts otherwise you may not be around too long to continue doing good deeds ;)
