    Garage Weekend - 6/7 April 2024 - Nottingham

    It's that time again! I'm going to be hosting one of my world-famous Garage Days at my home, just off M1 J27.



    Format will be like those before - arrive at mine whenever you want throughout the weekend, stay overnight on the Saturday if you wish, and either come with a list of things and parts to work on your own car, or come and help with others cars, or just come and have a great time chatting **** with like-minded people!

    I've got space in the garage and on the drive for about 6-7 cars to be worked on simultaneously, and my neighbour will hopefully offer overflow parking in their paddock just behind my house when I tell them the dates!


    If you could add your name to the Google Document linked below if you want to come, and use it as a list of jobs you want to get done, and so I've got a rough idea of numbers. I'll also try to remember to print it out or write it up on my whiteboard, so just check the board out and go help with a job if you think you can!

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

    Address will only be provided to those people whose name is in the document!

    Priority for driveway space will go to paid up ClubVR4 Members.


    In the past we've done everything from changing a bulb, oil changes (especially a full autobox flush, where it's easier with 2 people) to a full cambelt replacement, and loads in-between.


    I have a decent selection of tools, including a very heavy duty impact gun which should undo almost anything, and two of most of the main things (socket sets, breaker bars etc), but if you've got some work to do, maybe bring your own tools, otherwise everyone will be fighting over the 10mm socket, and you might prefer to use your own tools anyway!


    I'll see about getting my father-in-law to do us a BBQ on the Saturday night too!


    Hope to see a few of you there!

    Still not sure, basically it's mostly weather dependant as my wipers mech won't work, not sure if I'm brave enough to risk 2hrs drive one way with no wipers, btw anyone attending may have wipers mechanism as mine seems to grind itself to death, on other side it's something to work on. Anyone attending with kids like 8 and 12 old? If I decide to come it most likely will be Saturday.

    I should have a wiper mechanism, so if you wanted to pull yours off and have a look at it here there's a possibility of replacing it if it can't be easily fixed.

    I've heard that RainX is good, and that you can get away without having wipers if you've got a good covering of it! But, hopefully, the weather is looking good!

    There will be some kids here, you're more than welcome to bring them (plus there's WiFi they can jump on for phones/tablets to keep them occupied too!

    Spirit of ppl in this club is just unreal, Legnum being 3th car in house is very rarely used and it's a bit left on the maintenance so when Gary @Confused prompted me day ago and actually remained me of garage weekend, thanks Gary, I realised that my wipers not working and it will be hit and mis to drive in current weather, so I contacted Andy @andyp_fto last night half past 8pm as I remember he is breaking Galant regarding part I need and guess what? He take it off 20.20 pm last night and I collected it today, what a result.
    So see you all on Saturday evening,

    Just for banter

    Can you please pm me address @Confused

    I had this on my V6, it was two things: a seed from a tree was wedged between the arm of the drivers side wiper and the cowl making a horrific noise but impossible to see against the black paint and this having been there a while had helped water get at the turret the wiper comes thru the panel on which was fairly rusted but responded well to a clean and packing in grease.

    see you Saturday!
