Workshop Day - Pictures and Reports - 15th September 2018


Recommended Posts

Here's another nugget for you...

 

Q) Why is it that when you buy a nut and bolt combo they often have a different head size?

A) Because you can use 2 different spanners in your set to tighten them up. If they were the same size you would need to identical size spanners

 

I love clever thinking like that! :)

First few pics appear fuzzy - guess my camera is getting old....

The availability of the lifts made so many jobs that much easier, especially for a cranky older person like myself. So nice to move the car up and down when working on it, and it even allowed me to stick my head easily in my driver's side footwell and fix my loose dash panel and discover exactly where my fuses are!

 

p.s. Didn't get a picture of my relative working on his car. Possibly a short time window..... :P

Apologies for the delay in writing this but a busy rest of the weekend...

 

Just want to say a huge :thankyou: to Lez and Cazza for organising this weekend. Whilst I could only stay for a couple of hours in the morning due to family commitments in the afternoon, I had a great time meeting you all and giving my Zed a couple of hours of TLC that I can rarely find the time for. I would have happily stayed for the rest of the day enjoying the company, location and food spread! I was also perilously close to popping my cherry on machine polishing (thanks for the offer Les) which I was gutted I couldn't stay for. Also, thanks must go out to Martin and Martyn who made the day run so smoothly (well, until I disappeared anyway, who knows what happened afterwards!). Together with Les, it was obvious how much effort they had all put in. Simply fantastic. :D

 

Staying on the theme of thanks, I want to say thanks for making me feel so welcome at my first nissansportz meet for many years (I think the last one I went to was the Marshalls centenary in 2009?). Looking forward to getting to some other meets and of course, should Les and Cazza be kind enough to organise the workshop day again - I'll be there! Took a few pics to add to the collection...

 

Dave

Thanks for the great write up and pictures Dave and also for coming along, it was great to meet you after all these years. We will be returning next year for another workshop day in September, details will follow later in the year when we open interest threads. And I am more than happy to go through machine polishing and we can find a donor car for you to play with first. :thumbsup:

Evening Les. It was great to meet you and Cazza too. Always nice to put faces to names. :D

 

Great to hear that you plan on hosting another event next year - I'll keep a keen eye out for that! :) Thanks also for the kind offer to go through machine polishing and on a doner car too! Maybe at another event if I don't take the plunge and attack my old Civic first?!? It has some of the dreaded fade that only red cars can get. T-cut and polish don't help :(

Les, when the pictures and reports thread gets to post 33, you've probably got the event right. Well done.
