Do you have a date fixed for your tech day yet? We've been invited to a wedding! We will do both if it's the same day but planning will be needed!! Thanks Stewart 07975 970092

I have a horn swap to do, depending on the queue can do it on the lift or with the trolley jacks.

I have managed to hurt my shoulder but should be fine later next week.

The Techday is getting towards closing for cars on the ramp due to the number of cars.

Therefore make it a day later next week.

OK I think we have reached a sensible total number of cars on the lift for the 19th.

I have sprained a shoulder therefore will provide the tools and advice but not doing anything to further hurt my shoulder.

There are plenty useful punters here to help if required.

I am going to the Osteopath on the 10th so he may sort it as he has done to lots of people before
Therefore the scores on the doors are.

Eddie, John and I will arrive at 0900 in order to be first on the ramp with the red car and then leave it clear for those requiring work to be done.

Another great Tech Day at Drumtochty.

12 Cars at one time and another 2 later on.

Attendies from Moray in the north to St Andrews in the south

Great help from Stuart, Ian and Colin on the lift as my shoulder is still tender, thanks a lot guys.

TJ and my Niece Kate for running the kitchen and making lots of Bacon Rolls, Tea, Coffee and filled rolls at lunch time.

Thanks to all the others for turning up and making the day a good bit of fun.

The problem is when you feed them they want to come back next year!

Late posting as have been out since I left Drumtochty! As echoed by others, many thanks for the hospitality. Good to see the red car is incredibly clean underneath. John was most impressed with your facility and we'll arrange to come down one day when he has the MGB back from Ricky Gauld.

Brilliant day, many thanks Eddie and Kate. Great to meet so many enthusiastic owners. I think I may have to change the springs on the BBR as I'm sure I've got some more of your chuckies under the car as I graded the yard on my way out! Hoping to get out on some club runs this year.
