Tech Day
Sun 11th Feb 2007
organised by Central Scotland

Car Count : 16
 
[ show pre-run info ]

A great turnout for our first Tech Day of the year, and good to meet some new faces, also hats off to Malcolm who had travelled down from Buckie.
Tony and I managed to get his car in the Garage first and tackled the job of changing one of the lower suspension bolts. Don, Andy & I, stripped down my chrome filler cap lid and freed off the sticking piston, no more embarrassing moments in the petrol station for me. John was busy with the glue gun as he fitted a new cubby box and clock to his son Fraser's special edition Gleneagles, while the others outside were fitting Robin's new radiator grille.
Lunch time and although the rain came on we still managed to get the BBQ going and satisfied the hunger of our participants.
Loads of other little jobs were completed before we set about the demolition of a scrapped car Richard had got a hold of. It was quite sad to see the gradual stripping of the layers and structure of what was once somebody's pride and joy, although fully aware of the economical reasons for not returning this car to the road, it still tugged on the old heart strings knowing there would be one less little five on the road.
An excellent and productive day, many thanks to Richard & Eileen for once again hosting this event.

Great day, thanks to Richard and Eileen for the hospitality.

As usual learnt a bit about how the car comes apart, just a pity we ran out of time to put it back together theough Richard, I'm sure you'll manage it on your own !!

Sorry I couldn't make it. Felt obliged to spend some time with family since I'd hardly seen them during the week. Looks like a good productive day.
