2nd North West Fix It Day - 21 October 2012

#1 Post by 1234dist » Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:30 pm

As we had issues last time not only will there be forum post there will be the main website access so you can see what we did last time.

After the success of the previous fix it day, here we go again!

Sunday 21st October 2012 from 08:00 till we're done.

Here is the last event and a few of the pictures of people getting their hands dirty (even zrchris "we have pictures").

The next event we are hoping to have sponsored by my local Autofactors so we will have some freebies to give away.

The event its self is free of charge but we do ask for a £5 donation to go towards the cleaning and electrical costs of the event.

This donation only applies to people getting work done.


So for those who haven't already been.

Vine Street, Hazel Grove, SK7 4JS
https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=sk7...d+Kingdom&z=19

If you are planning on having work done please let me know so we can make sure you leave with that work completed.

We can even provide any parts you require (pending availability) at trade cost (an invoice will be shown regarding the prices) but please let me know prior to the event so we can make sure its there on the day. Cut off for parts is 12:00 on Saturday 20th October.

Street Parking is limited but we have access to two large car parks close to the event, we ask if you are not having work done to utilise these car parks.

Other than that all are welcome, we have most tools you could ever require and if i haven't got it, it will be there ready for the next event.

Only one rule applies, you break it you bought it :crash:
See you there

This is open to anyone, any age, any car as long as there is a rover traceable element.

Its free of charge and we provide food and drinks.

Check out the pictures on the blog site we had loads of fun last time.
