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.

Here we go....

Happy new year everybody. :)

Due to the growing success of Area 52 and its playdays for the Retro Rides community, I have taken the plunge and finally entered the world of blogging!


Hopefully this place will act as a useful resource for the A52 regulars to keep track of upcoming events as well as providing details and info for people thinking of coming along to one of the future playdays.

2010 looks like its going to be a fantastic year for Retro Rides and for Area 52.

I will add details of upcoming events very soon, but for now please add the following dates to your diaries:

9th/10th January: Ship Shape & Bristol Fashion. A weekend of getting the unit sorted, organised, set-up and prepared for future playdays.

20th/21st February: Fibreglassing Tutorials. John Dickens (Technical Editor for Complete Kit Car) has agreed to come down to Area 52 to run a fibreglassing demonstration/workshop for anyone interested in learning to fibreglass.

In the meantime, please feel free to sign up and post comments, suggest content and contribute some pics of previous playdays.


I'll start adding the backlog of pics from previous playdays bit by bit. Please be patient - this is a whole new world to me! I have to take it steady.....

Thankyou for tuning in and I look forward to seeing you all at some point down at the unit.
