Thumbs up Re: TLC's OVERHAULIN' Turns Old Heaps Into Cool Rides, Secretly Turning Real People's

I bought my wife a 73 javelin back in 1994 for her 35th birthday. Over the years I have put alot of money in it to referbish it. It still needs alot of body work and I can't find anyone to paint the costom perrire cardone strip that matches the seats and the rest of the interior.

I would like to have it done by her 5oth birthday. Nothing too wild, just regular stock, with an 8 track stereo. She is really into retro, and listens to 8 tracks and records. No modern electronics for her.

I think my project would be unique in the fact that I watch your program whenever I can, and have yet to see an AMC Javelin refurbished.

If this is possible, my wife would freakout. I own lots of other AMC's However this one belongs to my wife and is the only one she is crazy about. Even her e-mail address shows the love she has for this car. This is her baby, anything else is just a car.

Thankyou Overhauling, I love your show

Re: TLC's OVERHAULIN' Turns Old Heaps Into Cool Rides, Secretly Turning Real People's

Hi my name is Denise and I have recently bought an older school bus that I had wanted to turn into a Mardi Gras float for my grandson who was badly burned in 2006 he has had many surgeries since December 2006 (when he was burned while in his biological father's care) and he still has many more to go he has just recently been diaginosed with "post tramatic Stress" and he is only 8 years old.I was wondering if you could come and overhaul my bus for my grandson so he and other children can ride in the 2010 Mardi gras parades..we would be so blessed to have you do this......Thank you so much for your time and please can you let me know one way or the other

Cool Re: TLC's OVERHAULIN' Turns Old Heaps Into Cool Rides, Secretly Turning Real People's

overhaulin is the best show. we watch it all the time. my wife has a 69 firebird that would be perfect for the show...she has had this car for 17 years..it was the first car she bought. she has kept that car around her all the time. it is in storage now due to medical conditions she suffers from and is unable to finish restoring the car that she calls her baby...if there was anything in the world i would give her it would be for overhaulin to restore her baby...i think that what overhaulin does for people is great, keep up the good work.

Re: TLC's OVERHAULIN' Turns Old Heaps Into Cool Rides, Secretly Turning Real People's

Here is a great article I found at http://www.autoeng.org

Engine analyzers come in varying sizes:

-Big box
-Hand-held

An engine analyzer should be considered one of the essential tools for any type of drive ability diagnostics, not just
intermittent. No other single piece of equipment can provide as much information about the basic function of the
engine. The engine analyzer of today is typically hand-held, versus the big box of yesterday. Although there are
some benefits to the hand-held such as portability; there are also draw backs, such as fewer features and smaller
screens. To overcome this drawback, many hand-held engine analyzers can now display directly on a PC monitor for
easier viewing and greater clarity.

Offer similar features:

-Starting and charging system tests
-Ignition system analysis
-Cylinder balance test
-Relative compression test
-Cylinder time variations

Big box or hand-held, most engine analyzers offer similar features that are helpful in diagnosing intermittent
problems. Since many drive ability related problems are still related to basics, the engine analyzer is a fast and
effective way to pin-point drive ability problems in a wide variety of areas.

Late Model Vehicles are complicated:

In the past, there were two common methods of dealing with intermittent problems. First, we could wait until the
intermittent problems becomes consistent or at least repeatable. Then we could apply standard diagnostic
techniques to solve the problem. Second, we could start at the front of the vehicle and begin changing parts until
either the problem goes away or, at the very least, becomes less of a problem. The first solution seldom works
because customers need there vehicles to be ready for the daily commutes, nor do they want to drive a vehicle with
a known problem waiting for it to break. The second solution is an even bigger problem, as the customer will end up
paying for parts that we most likely don't need. Or worse yet, the unneeded parts end up costing a customer way
too much money, therefore a good, knowledgeable auto repair shop is needed.

I definitely enjoy watching Overhaulin. Would've nominated my old 97 Volvo V70 XC for repair. I bet they could've done some pretty cool things with it but I recently sold it. Look forward to watching future episodes.

Re: TLC's OVERHAULIN' Turns Old Heaps Into Cool Rides, Secretly Turning Real People's

Grant me the Serenity to Accept the Things I cannot change, the Courage to Change the Things I can and the Wisdom to Know the Difference...

There's a saying in a group of Friends, that in order to keep what's been given to you, you've gotta give it to someone else and that's what I'm trying to do...

My husband, Jim Bailey, is a former college student from Century College graduating with dual diplomas in the fields of Prosthetics and Orthotics. In the process of going back and forth to school (5 hours away) visiting me and daughter, Megan, his Mazda truck died. We assumed the loan of a 92 Jimmy from a friend to which I drove up to get him back and forth ready for the junk yard, nickel-diming us to death and falling apart. In the meantime, his heart and soul for a Blue Chevy Pick-Up Truck just sits as it's been one thing after another in the way of getting her fixed up. While he finished school, bumps in the road almost pulled us apart. As I was coming off of being an IV user of Cocaine/Heroin & Meth, he stayed with me & daughter, Megan, through thick and thin, and married me in 2001. I can truly say, "I married MY Best Friend"!!!
Long story short, this man has sacrificed everything from continually working on projects around home (we were finally able to get out of the house-rent-rut through a friend) to helping friends & family, to selling his tools & tool box & motorcycle to keep us afloat, take care of my/our daughter in the 90's while I was in jail (I had her when I was 20, so he's been like her Father since she was 11), and to this day, still drive the 92 falling apart Jimmy without blinking an eye! He's the kind of guy who drops everything to go help ya, give his shirt off his back or give you his last dollar or coin. We've been pluggin' away since!

Today, we are proud Grandparents of two beautiful boys, in our later 40's, Recovering Alcoholics/Addicts...and so much more
My husband has 15 years of Sobriety in and me, almost 12! Choices in Sobriety, Freedom in Recovery!!! WhoooooHooooo!!! We dated as kids, went our separate ways, and were brought back together in `95 in a miracle!!!

Although we've been at the same jobs for years now, and know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, through our Recovery, it would mean the world to me to give back to a man who has given so much and see the look on his face when we surprise him with his 1971 Chevy Pick-Up truck Custom Camper Special fixed up Chip FOOSE Style!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That orange/black color scheme looks the bomb (in an episode I saw once) as we are also Motorcycle Enthusiasts teaching people how to ride Motorcycles Safer. Rider Coaching is also what we do come Summer time as Jim is the Site Admin. for our area, so you see? Busy, busy, busy....Sirs & M'ams; I don't care the color...Red/Black even...do what you want! Just, please, please help me surprise the best thing that's ever happened for us and that's having the most wonderful man in our lives surprised to beat the band!!!!!!!
Please help me, help him and show back the love and sacrifice he's done for Megan, me, and our Grandkids!
Please. Please pick me and have us on your OverHaulin' Show giving Jim his fixed up/blow your mind Dream Ride!!!

Thank You from Grand Forks, North Dakota and Thanks for Your Time!

Jan Bailey

Hope to see ya!!!!
