PLEASE NOTE! Please see #5 below where it says,
"Once we have agreed upon a date, you send in your PayPal deposit"
Y'all settle down! We are current at step "1" !!

PAYMENT
Hand it over.
:pirate:

Full Day $600.00 9AM-7PM
Half Day $340.00 (5 hours wherever we decide to stick it)

This is the first test of your ability to absorb and execute instructions.

D Deposit PayPal:
$300.00 Full Day
$240.00 Half Day
PayPal payable to <78vw2000@earthlink.net>
**** In the "comment" box, you shall put your username/real life name, your street address, and your phone number. This is my "cloud" data back-up, people! *******

B Balance Cash
$300.00 Full Day
$100.00 Half Day
You will happily pay it just to get me out of your driveway so you can beat down the noise in your brain.
You Half Day people are dangerously non-committal, so you are paying a handicap deposit, but at least your balance will be only $100.00


Once your deposit has posted, you get an IAC-certified red D next to your name in the 2019 Itinerary list. That is my contractual obligation to be at your door at 9:00AM on the listed day.

Deposits are non-refundable if you screw up our date or your household finances collapse between now and your appointment. Let the sting be soothed by your willingness to consider it a contribution to a worthy cause to help your fellow forum members keep their beloved VWs healthy.

Deposits are happily refunded if I screw up getting to your house because of stupidity or crashes in Colorado, or if any other unforeseen interruption should occur.

Don't think all is lost right off the bat, however. I will endeavor to meet you halfway, and I will certainly hope that you extend the same sort of effort if I blow a CV in Idaho and try to fit you in later somehow.


PROCESS

1. 2019 Preliminary Interest Gauge
a) Jump in! Tell us what projects/learning you are interested in and what area of the country you are in and a generally wished-for appointment date. This is just to get all the many pieces of the puzzle on the table. If you post an interest in the Preliminary Interest Gauge, expect a PM from me to help us formulate a plan.

2.
a) if we met on theSamba, please PM your Samba username and your real name and your IAC username to help me synchronize our earlier correspondences!
All future correspondence must occur via PM here.

b) You MUST provide your user name, your real name, your address, your contact number on your PayPal deposit in the comment box. It is my free "cloud storage" of your information should my laptop decide to kick the bucket


3. PM me here on the Itinerant Air-Cooled site with:
a) your questions,
b) your List of Concerns from most-important to least important,
c) assessment of your mechanical aptitude, things you'd like to learn.
d) work environment, either rain-proof or plan b for a rainy day.
e) is this a Road Warrior or a weekend putterer? What are your dreams and hopes for this car?

4. I respond with Edited List and Preliminary Parts Guess. YOU are the driver of this correspondence process. Utilize it in the service of your preparation for a productive day.

5. On the forum, YOU keep an eye on the dates filling in and the locations of where these dates are filling in. You watch for a date to show up next to your name. It is a rough-in to let me line up appoints prior and subsequent to you. If the date is not good, PM me forthwith and at once!
WE ARE HERE - 04/18/19
Once we have agreed upon a date, you send in your PayPal deposit to:

< 78vw2000@earthlink.net >

In the comment box of your PayPal payment window, you SHALL provide your username, real name, address, phone number. (this step is my free "cloud storage" if my computer should ever fritz on me)

The Deposit Countdown Clock starts on May 1st and runs through May 15th.
May 15th is the Deposit Deadline Day.

6. A red D next to your name occurs when your deposit posts to my PayPal. It is our contractual obligation to each other. I will be there on the appointed day at 9:00AM petitioning the house staff for a cup of coffee. I generally refuse to engage in the niceties of confirmation phone calls unless I expect to be more than 15 minutes late or already dead.

Questions? PM me "Amskeptic".
