Sunday 7th June 2009



Yet another very successful Tech Day with 15 cars in total attending. Various jobs were completed on some of the cars, for example:

Chas spent a long time struggling with the complex wiring for the integrated brake light on his new boot rack. After many failed attempts to get it working, Sarah came to his rescue. After a few minutes with a volt meter and swapping a few wires around, hey presto! a working brake light.

Graeme stripped out his inner door panel to try to find the intermittent fault with the wiring to his door speaker. It was working when he left, is it still working I wonder?

Colin had his ignition timing set from the standard 10 to 14 degrees BTDC on his very tidy Mk1. This should help him to get back to Edinburgh a bit faster.

Chic with a little technical advice from Dave (Mr Vinyl) fitted the European 2009 Tour decals to his bonnet and door. The car is now ready for its great adventure.

Dave washed his car, and very nice it looked afterwards too. It was great to see the actual car after following the months of interesting detailed and informative (and impressive) welding, painting etc that Dave had shared on the forum thread.

Richard as always was on hand with his extensive knowledge of all things MX-5 offering friendly help and advice to all those who required it.

With all the technical stuff done we descended on the BBQ. Head chef Graeme prepared the hearty feast of burgers, bangers and kebabs to perfection and everyone tucked in.

It was good to see Donna & Tom, Julie & Ricky, Graham & Tom enjoying their first club event. We hope you had an enjoyable day and that we will see you all again soon.

Many thanks to Eileen and Richard for their hospitality and arranging for the sun to shine and the rain to stay away all day.
