Mar 20 Do It Yourself Program Overview


Our Do It Yourself (DIY) program allows NCC Members to work on their own cars under the supervision of expert mechanics and technicians provided by the DIY Sponsor. The DIY purpose is to learn and practice proper maintenance and repair techniques that you can routinely complete within a two-and-one-half-hour time period. There are usually several NCC members who can assist when an extra pair of hands or advice is needed, and we are happy to show newcomers the joys of working on your own car. DIY participants are encouraged to contact the specific NCC DIY Coordinator before the event to help you plan ahead and decide what size job you can tackle, based on your skill level and tools. Most DIYs start at 8 or 9 AM, and finish at 2 or 3 PM. Lunch for registered applicants and Sponsor staff will be provided by our club. Helpers may have lunch after a small contribution paid to the Coordinator.

This event offers online registration and payment through MotorsportReg.com.

"This event offers online registration and payment through MotorsportReg.com."

Quick comment: per MotorsportReg we register for the DIY via the site, but there is a note to the effect that payment is not made via their site.

That is a mistake. We are NOT accepting payment through MSR. Payment will be made at the event with cash, checks, or money orders.

Our updated main page content is here: http://www.nccbmwcca.org/content.php?119-diy and we identify that payment is with cash, check, or money order.

We will fix the mistake above. Sorry about the confusion.

We are already full for this event, so I changed your registration from cancelled to waitlist. Looking at the jobs for the event, we have a few that should go pretty quickly, but it all depends on total lifts. I will know more next week.

I think we should form a committee to debate and decide, or at least take an interested party vote, on what color Paul should paint his wheel hubs. Remember what your mother told you about being judged by your friends. If he picks the "wrong" color, we'll have to vote his car out of the common club parking lot.

My vote goes to hot pink or fluorescent orange.

If you're going to paint them, at least make them look REALLY stupid. ;)

I've been thinking of chartreuse calipers, with brembo magic marker lettering

I concur that the color combination and method that you have decided is well within your style standards.

Please show up at 8:30 a.m. so we can start the paperwork. I expect to start getting people on lifts at 9 a.m.

I will send out a message through MSR as well as we get closer.

Hi all... had a quick question: I registered on the website and was waitlisted. I then received an email stating that I am confirmed but I still show up as waitlisted on the registration website. Should I go by the registration website or the email?

Hopefully its the email :-)

Looking forward to attending my first local NCC CCA meet.

On MSR, it will show you as Confirmed (Waitlist) with a green box. This means you were confirmed to attend from the waitlist. You are good to go for Saturday.

Sounds good. Thank you :-)

I did have a question about what to bring though. Obviously I will bring my own tools and materials, but I was wondering if I would have access to an oil drain pan to get rid of the old fluids. Should I bring my own? (Sorry this is my first DIY with the CCA so I'm not sure)

No, you do not need to bring your own. The shop has their own height adjustable catchbasins for oil and for coolant, perfect for using with their lifts. (If you were to bring your own basin, you would just wind up dumping it into theirs.)

Thats what I thought and was hoping. Thank you for the confirmation :-)

Can I still register for 03/20/10 DIY Passport BMW?

MPWR

Register?

No. Registration closed two weeks ago.

But if you head down to Passport right now, you might be able to get on a lift sometime today as a walk up.
