Tech Day & Pebbles

Sunday 17th June 2012

For the guys: time to sort out all those niggly little jobs on your car.

For the ladies: A visit to Pebbles.

The Tech Day facilities we have available are:

  • 2 lifts so that you can access the undersides of the car. 1 two post and 1 four post. Ideal to check underseal and exhaust condition.

  • Trolley jacks also available.

  • Oil change facilities.

  • Wheel balancing.

  • 4 wheel laser alignment.

  • Battery condition check.

  • Parts could also be ordered.

  • Vast selection of tools to undertake any job no matter what it is.

  • Plenty of parking.

  • Pebbles

    Central Scotland members Val and Kevin are going to open Pebbles their Bo'ness Jewellery shop especially for the MX-5 ladies (and gents of course) with an added 10% discount. It's just a 5 minute walk from the Garage.  Val is opening the shop from 11:00 till Noon for us.

    We can then have a coffee over the road in the Town Bistro until the other half is finished with the car.

    A little something for everyone.

    A huge thank you to Wattie & Marshall for your "assistance" in keeping my hands relatively clean & soft.  ;-)
    The search for a new calliper is on!

    Great day and heather didn't spend too much on my card which is always a bonus , Gordon mx5 parts do supply all the kit needed to have your caliper working tip top again
