The first Eastern Region Tech Day of 2006 took place on Sunday 5
March at Priory Garage, the home of Priory Fives, in Cambridge.
The day started at 9.00am and some members were still working up
to about 7.15pm! A long day indeed, particularly for Robbie
Marsh who as the man who had the keys to the workshop was there
the whole time
and as usual at a Tech Day was attempting to oversee all the
more challenging jobs throughout that time. But it was not just
the Eastern Region who were getting stuck in as we had several
guests as well from both the Chiltern Area and North Thames
Region also getting their hands dirty
and had visits from
several other, old, new and prospective members.
As well as the usual fluid changes this Tech Day features a
whole load of other, in some cases quite complicated projects
including; a new hood for Gary Smith’s car which took about 7
hours work and about 6 people to close on completion as the new
vinyl was just a bit taught, Chris Woodger and me both took on
fitting new lower springs to our respective cars although I have
to confess I had a lot of help!, Gordon Picket fitted stainless
steel brake hoses and John Gamston new soft foam bump stops.
An excellent day made even better by the cakes and sausage rolls
etc. kindly donated to keep us fed during the day. The biggest
thanks has to go to Robbie who never fails to have a solution
taxing off technical problems even if on one occasion the
solution involved the use of a very large hammer !
Thanks also to Mark
at Priory Garage for allowing us the use of the premises and all
present expressed their regret that Priory is so soon to be no
longer. So the next Tech Day is already scheduled for 1
October, venue to be advised.
Louder, and now, lower….
