You and I have chatted many times before.
Thanks for the info, and yes, I am preparing to be the 'repairman'
I've actually taken a few courses on laying floors, general repairs, etc.
I worked in maintenance at a university for 3 years
I've worked with some of my buddies in the trades:
Drywall board (helped do a few floors of a condo)
floor repairs (minor to medium repairs, leveling, re-enforcing, etc)
touched on wiring (but I have a buddy who does that)
landscaping (I used to work for a landscaping company)
and some other random stuff.
and yes, thanks for the tip on the insurance. I will do that.
I am gonna shoot some video of the house, put it up on my You Tube channel, and then post a link.
THEN, I'm gonna get to work on that eagle!
One thing I didn't post here is:One older member (from the nest site) was rebuilding an eagle, then life happened, and he had to give up on the whole project. Here's my copied post (so I don't have to re-type it - he he he):
One of the eagle's nest members here in Calgary was fixing up an '82 limited, and he had bought lots of new parts, and some reconditioned for the car.
I guess he started that was 2-3 years ago, and after some major changes in his life, he's parting out the car:
I just bought his new rear leafs, front coils, upper and lower control arms cleaned up and painted with POR-15, with new bushings, new moog strut bushings, new upper and lower ball joints, rebuilt steering box, spring seat bushings, aluminum coil spacers, new shock perches, a whole bag of headlight adjusters, and two SS hose clamps that have the 'EAGLE' font engraved in them.
Tomorrow I'll get a pic of the parts and post it
He still has a lot of interior parts, and other stuff.
I bought some more stuff off of Tony -
I've bought off him:
a rebuilt steering box,
two tail lights (in great shape)
a new center console (different color, but in better shape then mine)
5 outer door latches,
2-3 hatch hinges with rubbers,
a chilton manual,
and some other stuff I can't remember right now.
Dean and I went to Sask., over the long weekend to raid Teamamc's yard full of AMC's and as usual, Dean took a whole van load of parts.
I got from that trip:
3 newer bumpers (one is for Pat, for his SX/4)
5 sets of door hinges (with no slop in them - All taken from passenger side doors)
some of those round rear quarter marker lights (on Spirits and SX/4's)
a rear sway bar complete,
another steering box (with no slop that I could tell)
sunroof glass, hinges, and rubbers (also for Pat)
a couple of fenders,
a section of rear quarter panel (to fix the rust holes on my rear quarter panel)
a whole bunch of those black short bumper ends (that are usually on Concords, and Spirits)
and some other goodies...
Hopefully, all that stuff will be going on the Eagle this Summer.
