The Fibreglassing Workshop with John Dickens is on the 20th Feb which is only next week! How quickly things come around....

Details for the workshop can be found on Retro Rides in THIS THREAD. There are only three places left though, so don't be too long in putting your name down.

Anyone coming along, PLEASE try and bring some wood/logs for the wood burner. Warmth is essential on these long playdays and any contribution of wood will help keep everyone from freezing.

See you all there this weekend.

Ghetto wheel arch rolling

RTLKYuubi (AKA Ryan) from Retro Rides popped in to Area 52 on Weds night for a cuppa and a chat. While he was there we decided to break out the wheel arch rolling device and get busy on his car ready for when he lowers it:

1) Bring one Micra along to Area 52

2) Park amongst the surrounding retro wonders

3) Stand back and admire your £100 'hi-rider' Micra 

4) Despite the massive altitude, assess how much scrubbage
is occuring on the wider rubber/fully laden interface 

5) Take one length of 3" tube (thick walled) and align with rear of arch

6) Get assistant to drive back & forth while you admire
your incredible Uri Geller metal bending technique

7) Get car on flatter surface to allow greater use of 'the force'

8) Now that you've mastered the technique, get started on the other side

9) To achieve the perfect finish, get assistant to bounce joyfully on rear
bumper while you watch your arches roll back to an ideal position

Clearance: Acheived.

Technique: Aprroved.
