April Garage Day

Garage day was very fun yesterday. We had a lot of cars, two lifts working and several cars in the driveway. Battery change, broken stud replacement, several brake fluid changes, tire rotations, and we did several 50 point inspections. We also fixed one power point, replaced a broken door handle, and a mirror switch.

We also finished hooking up Ray's backup camera.

Lots of great food and fun. Now ready for the summer cruise season.

Thanks for hosting Rob!

We also retorqued the bracing and suspension of one car and installed a tunnel brace and Probeam kit on another. Rob was everywhere - offering tips, advise and help while lending his tools, spare car parts and home with everyone. One car got a cam solenoid changed and I saw a couple test rides happening. I learned some new things and had a great time with everyone. There were free shirts left over from the last NASSAM and a potluck for food as well as catered food.

Rob should really charge admission!
