Spring Tech Day
Sat 26th Apr 2014
organised by Grampian Scotland

[ show event report ]

There is now an MX-5 Tech Day organised at Drumtochty Glen on Saturday, 26th April 2014 which is on the border of the Tayside and Grampian Area so we expect to see people from both groups.

First the Legal Bit

Work on Car at Your Own Risk

It must be stated that all work on your car is at your risk and neither Eddie Cairns or the MX5 Owners Club or its representatives and other club members have all risks insurance against any damage to your car. Nor are they technically competent to carry that risk. Therefore any damage to your person or property and any work done on your car and the use of the facilities at Drumtochty Glen on the day are your responsibility.


Directions will be emailed to those advising that they are attending nearer the time.

Tech Day

The reason for the Tech Day is to have a day on which simple jobs can be completed on your MX5 in the company of other enthusiasts, some with little technical knowledge and other who have more technical knowledge. Therefore exchanging knowledge across the membership.
Can attendees advise nearer the time if they want to have their car on the 2 Post Lift to examine the underside of their car?
Can attendees also advise nearer the time what other jobs they want to do on their cars so we can get some idea of timescale and what will be possible on each car?
You are more than welcome to attend if you just want to come along without getting your hands dirty or doing anything to your car.
For those more local, the garage will be available from 9:00 am but most people tend to turn up later, itís up to you.

A great day getting cars up in the air and great spread put on by My niece Kate and her friend Emma.

So good that we forgot to have the soup at lunchtime.

So much food left that most people got a doggey bag to take home.

Pictures and condition report later on Chassis Rails.

A Grand day out.

Thanks very much to Eddie for arranging the day, use of his garage and for the hospitality, great to meet everyone,  and get a look under the cars and have a good, old blether.
