If you can't find any closer help, you can bring it up here Saturday afternoon. Should be able to get them loose. Swearing a lot helps...

Oh yeah, soak all the bolts with penetrating oil today. That will help.

Ok, sounds good. We'll set something up tomorrow morning, probably meet up at the McD's in woodland park. That would be way easier than the screwball directions I'd have to give you

I was thinking more like 1:00 if you can live with that, I'm not even coherent at 10:00.
