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.

If you have folding chairs could you please bring them along as I don't think we'll have enough for everyone.

1 - Drew (Post Lindisfarne underside inspection)
2 - Robert (Underside inspection)
3 - Hugh (Underside inspection)

Hi there.  We have often viewed your activities on your website as we have owned two Mx5\\\'s for the past eight years and had always intended getting in touch to enquire if we could join you on some of your outings.Could we possibly join you next weekend on the Cowal Run?? If it\\\'s of any interest we noticed someone looking for an electrical cable for their Mk 2 hood.  We have one spare and could bring it along with us. Looking forward to hearing from you.
