    Wonderful day out in the sun! Great seeing familiar faces and meeting new people.

    Huge thanks to Tony and Shirl for organising, the route was brilliant and the sweet treats at the end were a hit!

    Everything was great apart from the brake fluid dripping out of the car :banghead:


    IMG_080919_162755.jpg

    After asking nicely Tony opened up the Zedshed for an emergency procedure and had a look under the car.


    IMG-20190908-WA0001.jpeg

    A very poorly made copper brake line had been rubbing on the car until a hole was made. A new shiny one was made and fitted, brakes are now working perfectly!

    Massive thank you to @t-tony for offering to help without hesitation. Love this part of the car community and this forum!


    Can't wait for next year :D

    I second this. It takes an incredible amount of time and we all benefit from their kind generosity in giving us Z owners an opportunity to meet both old and new friends. Thanks to both Shirl and @t-tony for hosting a fab day.
