Tech Day
Sun 23rd Nov 2008
organised by Central Scotland

Car Count : 11
 
[ show pre-run info ]

Despite the weather 11 cars turned up for the last Tech Day meet of 2008. Various jobs were undertaken including a strut brace fitting. A dropped door was rectified by Richard with his usual enthusiasm. Some electrical problems were found and faults diagnosed.  The main job was the untwisting of the upper wishbone bushes on 3 of the Mk3s. Thanks to Richard and Charlie for doing this. The first one always takes the longest and the last the quickest.

Many thanks to Richard and Eileen for hosting this event and also for putting on the BBQ and Chiminea, we needed the heat from that.

good day - pity Scott didn't make it as I was looking forward to the welding lesson - but I have got to thank David for the heads up on the twisted bushes, always thought my car sat a little lower than some of the other Mk3's indicating the Eibachs had been fitted properly - but no, the bushes were twisted! - many thanks to Richard and Eileen for their usual hospitality and to Chaz for crawling under the car to release the bushes

Thanks david for the heads up ref the bushes, Charlie rolled my car over the cobbles to get them untwisted. Oh, and by the way the snow wasn't that bad as the photos show. Thanks to all,report to follow.

To those who have had their wishbone bushes released, remember you'll almost certainly need to have the geometry adjusted - the extra drop makes a surprising amount of difference to camber and toe.

Enjoyable day spent watching the technically minded guys dealing with mechanical issues - particularly impressed with the very technical adjustment of Bobbie's door!! Thanks again to Richard and Eileen for their hospitality
