I thought the event takes place on 02/07 how is registration being extended to 2/25 ?? Did you mean 1/25 ?
Also, parts are to be purchased from the sponsor right?

Is it mandatory that parts be purchased from the sponsor? I wanted to change some tie rods and I already have the parts.

Thanks

Sorry for the confusion, I was typing faster then what my brain was able process. Registration for this event was extended to 1/25.

We encourage participants to purchase parts/fluids from the sponsor. However, if you already have the part/fluids or if the sponsor does not provide an exact item that you need, then it is OK to bring your own.

Am I approved? Oh I guess i have to send the payment right?
OK payment have been sent. Do I have to call Euro tech now, or do I give someone the list of things I need and its submitted at once? Or can I just buy the parts on the spot? I need fuel, air and cabin filters only.

Thanks.

At this point orig sign up is closed and it is walk up only. I, Michael Thomas, will be the event coordinator. Since Euro Tech is a new sponsor we are using care in the work that will be peformed at the site. There are only so many lifts. At this point there is still room for walk up but I will have to get back you on that. Oil change is fine with me brake fluid flush????. Lets do the first item and if time permits ok with brakes flush. This is also Super Bowl Sunday. At this point not sure if start time will be 9-3pm or 10-4pm. I will be in touch with everyone by next week.

Thanks for your patiencehttp://forum.nccbmwcca.org/images/icons/icon7.gif

This is very close to my house. I am in the middle of building a new house, and I promised myself (and the wife) there would be no all-day car outings until we are in the new house.

Can I stop by to say hello and such - no work on my car.

Have Fun,
Rick

P.S. - besides, I would miss the Advanced Pre-Pregame What to Expect from the Countdown Show SuperBowl Sneak Peek Show. :-)

Yes, Please do. Since Euro Tech will have another DIY later in the year.

MMM.... I have seen it done at other DIYs which is not a difficult work. But only if you know what has to be done and prepared for it. My concern is that I like to keep the jobs for this DIY simple and short. I will meet with our sponsor tomorrow afternoon about the members who sign up by 1/25/10 which was the cut off date. Now it is walk up time. The only concern that there are limited lifts available(7). Now by tomorrow afternoon I will have a better picture and actual time when the garage will open to members. I will be in touch with everyone on the list and waiting list.

OK fine with me I can do the Oil change only and if time permits I can do the brake fluid change. I assume I can walk up to the location. Also other question is should I buy the Oil and filter before hand or can I buy them at the shop same day also the brake fluid if required.
Thank you

Since this is the first event I'll be attending, can you explain what steps I need to take from this point on?
Do I have to call the sponsor to let them know what parts I need (fuel filter) or can I assume since I'm in the approved list, they'll have the part ready?

I guess I need to be there at 9am? Or a little bit earlier, maybe 8.45 ?? Obviously I'm bringing my tools and a repair manual...

I'll probably be done in about an hour or so, so if anyone needs help I can help.

I was wondering if the even will be canceled because of the expected snow storm? I'm still planning to attend but what should I do in case I'm snowed in? Do I call the sponsor or what?
Thanks.

Hey to the guy that wanted to do the valve covers....I did them for the first time at the DIY. Where it did take longer then expected for the first one I was completely new to the idea of doing it. I would have been done in more then enough time but me and the Tech ran into a little big problem where a stud popped on the last step causing us to take it all apart again. Not to mention I did the drivers side first which is the hardest of the two. Make sure you have 2 10mm sockets on a 1/4 drive, a mirror to see that the half moons are seated and patience...They with all save the day....also hold where the half moons are during installation......

Only thing with valve covers, it is possible to crack them trying to pry the old gasket out. Strong dental picks come in handy.
My gasket was rock solid and brittle when I removed it.

I drove all the way to baltimore from Fairfax to find the shop closed, 65 miles on ice and snow. It was never updated in the forum that it is cancelled.

Please confirm if the EuroTech DIY, which was rescheduled from earlier in February to this Sunday, is on or off. Our coordinator was going to check with potential attendees in regard with chapter courtesy to the sponsor, but I haven't heard anything further. Unfortunately I cannot find a phone number for the coordinator or the sponsor on our reconfigured website.

Can anyone confirm the DIY status? Thanks.
