Arranged by Rob and Paul.
Thanks to everybody that attended, what a fantastic day. Brilliant bunch of people only too willing to help each other out with repairs and modifications to their cars.
Monk aka Dave fitted my new IPK (Instrument pack (IPK from the German)) with trip computer, cleared some old error codes with his T4 (Testbook version 4.Computer Diagnostic System), nice new toy to play with. Some of the chaps worked their socks off in 30ºC heat and full sun, most people would have just retired to the shade and panted. What's that about mad dogs and Englishmen? It's all true. :)

It was truly a great day and the Food wasn't to bad either. ;)
Finally got my Powerfolds onto car after sitting in Garage for some time, thanks Paul for making new loom and everyone else involved in sorting out my wreck of a car.
Great to see everyone and all mucking in where they could, see you all I hope at the next one,
(Mick no setting fire to the Barberque next time. :lol: )

Hope to be able to do another of these soon :)

To make up for not doing Dennis's FBH (Fuel burning heater.) mod, I've invited him to the house on Sunday. Should get it all done then.

Sorry to have not posted this sooner, but just wanted to say an extra thanks to Mick, who not only slaved
over a flaming ( literally :mrgreen: ) bbq all day, but looked after my youngest Katie while I was pulling
doors off Johns tourer!

Thanks Mick. ;)

This meeting sort of continued at my place today :)

Dennis finally got his remote boot opener and remote parking heater.

We had bacon sandwiches as well :D

They are in most places Jürgen,
will be having some at the Yorkshire meet at the weekend (Saturday). :D

Nano meet was Hot Dogs and later Beefburgers or Cheeseburgers washed down with plenty of Tea/Coffee/Diet Coke/Water and Fruit Juice.

No problem, all I did was make sure she got plenty to drink, and then let her sit in the drivers chair in my car with the aircon going full blast. Only glad she didn't experiment with the auto gear shift. :) That could have been amusing as the car was pointed directly at Johns. :oops:

Hmmm, would have been worth a detour just for the food. :)

They certainly are Jürgen :) As far as the nano-meets go it all stems from the first one at my house when SWMBO used at least half a pig ;)
