Come to the tech day at which simple jobs can be completed on your MX5 in the company of other enthusiasts. Those with little technical knowledge and those who have more technical knowledge will be able to work together to complete the jobs.
Can attendees advise nearer the time if they want to have their car on the scissor lift to examine the underside of their car? Can attendees also advise nearer the time what other jobs they would like to do on their cars so we can get some idea of timescale and what will be possible on each car?
A BBQ will be provided, so please bring along your own drink and food to cook.
