Good point - I'll chuck the hot-air gun in the car tomorrow morning :) How about the thermic lance ;)

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Thanks, Rob, hope you're well, too.
I'll be on the way to Munich tomorrow, so I won't drop in this time. Although the BBQ is tempting ... ;)

When I go camping for the weekend my 75 gets filled up including rear seats and passenger seat! Admittedly some of it's lazy packing but you bed to make provision when you just have to chuck it in when it's chucking it down when you pack up on the Sunday.

I'm on the way! Well at asda waiting for Mike who is running about 10 mins late... Admittedly we should have met at 9 but he rearranged at 8.40 lol

Just as well I got here early as they are queuing at the pumps now!!

Sorry to those of you who coudnt make it you missed a good un !

It was a great day after the foggy start, my pictures are on the Nano website via the link in my signature below, select " Last meet 21-10-12 " There is even one of Mick smiling, as I caught him off guard !

A few taster pictures below and a massive thanks to everyone who came especially those who travelled great distances to get there, and a special thanks to Mick who was chef for the day much appreciated.

Also thanks to everybody who contributed to the food kitty, I recouped my outlay of £135 as the total was £157 and the balance will be carried over to the next one

We had a first look at Merl's fabricated Mk1 Premium bumper on his V8 and a Nano first with conversion of skullcap mirrors to powerfolds on Micks (Wide Load ) tourer !

What a hell of a day to finish the year's events.

Who would have bargained on a sunny day and a successful BBQ at the end of October?

It seems that a lot of work was done again today with Steve (Arctic) being his usual dynamic self. One or two surprise faces as well.

There were at least two MG-R milk-floats there today, but all the doors seemed to have gone back in the right places eventually.

David's touch-screen computer was a major hit with me and Duncan for T4 (Testbook version 4.Computer Diagnostic System) operations and the hunt is on to find another suitable device.

Good to see the nano-meet "can do" spirit in evidence today, what with one car that had a missing powerfold loom and another that had a recalcitrant door check-strap. All solved in the end by sheer persistence.

We have also proved that a COMPLETE Ultimate Remote installation can be done in a single day, although some of us had our doubts earlier today :lol:

The fireworks at the end just capped the day nicely. Thanks to Rob for the organization and to Mick for the well timed and plentiful supply of hot food. Not forgetting the Tardis-like trailer attached to Lyndon's car with the sheer amount of stuff that he ferries to the meets.

Sorry we didn't get the new BBQ on the T4 but it didn't seem to have any problems ;)

Just one question - why was everybody wearing coats and in some cases gloves? :lol:

Hopefully the nano-meeters will be having a get together at Four Ashes in the near future to plan next year's events.

Have to agree, another fun day. Shame there are no more this year, but here's to next years calendar. Good to see some old faces, and meet some new ones. But best of all, I played with some peoples cars again. I still wonder why people don't worry when I start ripping their cars to pieces!

Was a great day :D

Special thanks to Steve aka Artic and unknown helper (sorry didn't get your name abdomen useless at remembering) for sorting out my handbrake :D

Rob for getting the food and glad you made the money :D also for taking great pictures! Will let it slide you tried blowing Mick and the rest of us up with the dodgy install of the gas cylinder ;)

Mick for cooking :D

And everyone else for making the day enjoyable.

Oh and can't forget jinx's first nano!!

Should keep me well away from gas canisters, i tried to throw 2 on the the fire at the last Ashes nano that were in a bag of rubbish, that would have provided better fireworks if Lyndon hadnt taken them off the fire
