    Hi Chris

    Seems to me, that many of us have specific questions regarding the cleaning and preparation of our cars. Many would like their car to be in show condition. Are you going to run any workshops this year? The opportunity might allow us to come along and see how the professionals do it, but more importantly answer specific questions we have about the preparation of our cars.

    Mike

    That is a good idea mike. A workshop on machine polishing would be good too.

    Hi Mike,
    A workshop type of day is something that I'd like to do for you guys. I'm currently working on a mobile basis so don't have a unit for you guys to come too. Having said that I'm actively looking to secure a unit in the coming months.
    If anyone has any ideas or access to a unit/warehouse that we could use to host such a day I'm all ears:)

    Yes Mark we could use that, It depends on Chris and of course how many others would be coming. I can only get about fifteen cars in the drive way. And of course the garage will need a clearout. I'll ask Sandy to get an extra 500 teabags Just in case.:cool:

    Sounds great if we can organise something like this Chris. I'm happy to supply bacon and rolls if we can organise something.

    A double garage sounds like a good starting point.
    I'm happy to make the trip to Cambridgeshire.
    So I guess we need to work out how many people would like to attend, a good date for everyone & of course what sort of things people would like to see/do???
