    Been busy in the garage.... Started taking the RZ apart.... pretty cold in the garage, so anything that can be cleaned and polished indoors finds a nice warm corner until the weather improves.

    keep track of which bolt comes out of where. Some are different lengths.

    Go with the new torsion spring that came out in the last year or 2.(if you are going in, swap the spring,might as well) I have the tools, but you will find them in Wpg

    Thanks for the heads up.... I found a fender a few weeks ago, it's already in at the painters.

    I will get in touch with this guy as I am looking for some other stuff. Not sure if the 1981 RD parts will fit on the 1983 RZ...would be nice though.

    Happy New Year

    Is there a line in the sand/across the hiway/through a swap ? Who has the official book of Canada and it's Regions... No... not the Road Atlas !!!!

    So....

    1. Where is Central Canada; according to the National Media, located in Toronto....it's there...yes Central Canada is located somewhere within close proximity of the CN Tower.

    OR

    Is it a few miles east of Winnipeg ? Right where the sign says "The Center of Canada"

    2. Where does Western Canada start..... According to fellow ADV Members....(not going to point a figure at anyone person here) it's just a little bit west of Calgary... LIKE....BC, has it all to themselves.

    OR

    Is it Thunder Bay.... like the Sign Says, The Gate Way to The West

    OR

    Is it Winnipeg, according to such sources as ....Wikipedia

    OR

    Is it Richer MB, where the Tall Grass Prairie starts....

    3. Should North Western Ontario be part of Manitoba.... if so, will we get our own Madhouse...?????

    There are many questionable items here to chat about.

    Or is it Landmark? Located on the Longitudal center of Canada? (According to signs, and its Wiki Page), haven't made it to ad ADV lunch yet, but thought I'd represent my current location all the same!

    Won't make it to the lunch so will add my 2 ¢ here

    1. Where is Central Canada; according to the National Media, located in Toronto....it's there...yes Central Canada is located somewhere within close proximity of the CN Tower.
    OR
    Is it a few miles east of Winnipeg ? Right where the sign says "The Center of Canada"


    Of course it is east of Winnipeg, it was shown to be so when they travelled with the Olympic torch. but it is also just a few miles north of the center of North America in Rugby ND

    2. Where does Western Canada start..... According to fellow ADV Members....(not going to point a figure at anyone person here) it's just a little bit west of Calgary... LIKE....BC, has it all to themselves.
    OR
    Is it Thunder Bay.... like the Sign Says, The Gate Way to The West

    Is it Winnipeg, according to such sources as ....Wikipedia
    OR
    Is it Richer MB, where the Tall Grass Prairie starts....


    To me it starts just past the 2 dips coming into Manitoba at West Hawk Lake. The ground gets (and stays) flat and the trees get smaller until they are gone

    3. Should North Western Ontario be part of Manitoba.... if so, will we get our own Madhouse...?????

    I see no problem with NWO becoming part of Manitoba as long as more Manitobans to not decide to summer here. We have enough crazies of our own.

    Lunch is at the Polo Park Canad Inns.... 11:30 ish.... Sunday the 30th, which I believe is tomorrow.

    Not sure who all is coming, but there tends to be a few tables open most Sunday's.

    Are you friggin' crazy? I'm not paying thier crazy insurance rates!

    I could also not live with the increases in my income and land taxes.

    Besides, I don't like Winnipeg.
