    We welcomed a couple of new faces to the Shed today. First up Carl Brown

    who kindly got his hands dirty changing the spark plugs in Dawn's 2.8. Top man, really nice to meet Carl and hope to welcome him back.
    Secondly we got to meet DaveB (with a Z3) who also mucked in with helping hands and fetching the butties at lunch time.

    He'll be back for sure :thumbsup::).
    Jobs done include front brake callipers and back plates, rebuild rear callipers (new seals etc.).

    front lower arms with steering arms and A/R bar drop links. Spread over 4 cars so we did ok.
    As usual all the banter, fun and hard work was enjoyed by all of us. Thank you to everyone and we look forward to the next Shed get together.

    Tony and Shirl.

    Thank you for a great and informative day. You need to add replaced my hazard warning switch , done by Carl in about 15 seconds to the job list.
    I've not done much on my Z3 besides oil and plugs but feel much more confident to get stuck in ( with Tony overseeing).
    I did consider doing a runner with the butties but feel the 1.8 would soon be run down by an angry horde of 6 cylinders ;)

    Sorry I couldn't make it Tony, just got so much on at the minute and were out all day today. I'm sure you'll let me know when the next one is. I still need to sort the bottom arms and lollipops out, oooh and how to use the oil catcher properly =))

    Looks and sounds like a good job (jobs) were done yesterday at Tony’s Midland Z Shed workshop, while I was feeling sorry for myself owing to a severe bout of sinusitis after chest and heavy head cold. Feeling better today as the headache has subsided. Sorry for having to miss this one. Hope to come up to Tony’s for the next one.
    Nice pics of happy people. Well done all those involved. :thumbsup:

    Got my tracking done and the car feels great. Steering is very responsive and it's giving a lot more feedback through the steering wheel :D

    That's good to hear mate. Only thing left is Dawn's @ktnez99 report and pictures from a good day at the Shed.
