This was my first DIY day and I have to say I am completely impressed with how well it was organized and the hospitality of the staff at Convenience Car Care. So many club members and staff chipped in to help me with advice and the occasional loan of a tool. I want to especially thank Alan for organizing this and Rod for assisting me with my rear brakes. I can’t wait until DIY 11. :biggrin:

This was my first trip to CCC. Very helpful & informative crew, as well as a great group of club members. I'm already signed up for DIY # 11.

Yeah I have to say that was one of the best automotive interactions I have had in a long time...and I mean looooooooooooong time. DAN IS THE MAN....let me say it again...DAN IS THE MAN for all the help that he gave. The CCC Staff was Great...Hats off. Better yet Kangol off to the staff. I am in on the next one.

Thanks again to everyone that came to the DIY. We had an excellent event and everyone that came got up on a lift including our walk-ups.

We are always treated great by Convenience Car Care and really appreciate their support of the club

Very impressed with the CCC shop and their dedication to racing. Timmy, Bobby, Dan and all of the techs were very generous with their time and experience (and doughnuts). Thanks also to all the local club members who welcomed this transplant from Michigan.

Wow, this DIY was a great one and this time I had my wife assist me in changing the timing belt and water pump on the E30. There were minor bumps along the way but it all turned out well. This makes the trip to CCC in Manassas from Baltimore worth the drive.

I'm glad to hear you were able to get it all back together on Saturday. I've never had to do this job in a single day!
