Detailing meet + BBQ?

How do all?
I've been wracking the old nogging on how we could have more of a social meet, rather than sitting in our cars blasting down A and B roads with a few breif stops and chats along the way....let's have a day of good food good times and clean rides.

So, in light of that......how does everyone feel about a day of detailing and BBQ food/a bit o' booze?
Several members in our section have good knowledge on the right products and techniques to use. Some work as detailers and are happy to lend a hand (cheeky FBSO Detailing plug) @Cooperate had his car done by us and was one happy man with the results.

I'm more than willing to provide the venue, Driveway holds 4-5 cars and there's plenty of space outside for those waiting for a spot on the drive. Plenty of detailing products etc etc (though I would ask that you bring your own as well) I'm more than willing to provide the bbq's and a good wack of grub (again if people could bring some stuff...sweet.) All you'd have to do is turn up and get involved. Simple.

Thinking early September, get a head start on the minging months of weather we're bound to have and get some protection on the motors.
Who's in?

I'd potentially be interested mate, but would have to pencil it in for now. September is a busy time for me already and I don't expect the car will be back by then. I could bring the Type-R but - again - there's no guarantee it will be available as my better half may need it. I like the idea though and would try and make it all the same :)

Bring your lady along if you like chap, mine shall be attending and judging by recent meets a few others will probably drag their ladies along (hopefully we won't have any turning a pale shade at this one).
Hope you manage to get Le CBR back ship shape and funky fresh soon, it'll be worth it this time around for sure!

Put me down, atm I'm off on every Sunday for September :) I'll contribute my das6 pro for the day, just ask if anyone wants to use supply own pads and polish as I don't have much left :)

I see someone's never detailed before :wink:

Personally I go by hand for all things as I'm old school in my ways, but most use rotary polishers etc so electricity is a must....certainly for the jet wash too.
I have a polisher myself :kissingsmiling:.
My thinking was incorporating the bbq aspect into a camping trip :blush:

Theres a camping trip on the 1st of August chap. One member from wales is going.
But the point being a trip was planned, it's been all over cliosport...and one member is going.

I'll gladly arrange a camping trip.... @Dano' has seen what it's like up my way...nothing but feilds as far as the eye can see. But it'll have to be worth it (more than one member)

My good lady totally agrees. Machines and devices have their place, but you can't beat the pleasure borne from a well-executed hand-job... :innocent:
OOOerrrr, sounds rather kinky chap!
Saying that..my little lady does this marvelous thing with her hands that leaves surfaces in a pearly white coat of goo.

She's brilliant at tyre lettering!!

On a more serious note, dates wise would people prefer Sunday 6th or Sunday 13th of september?

Would be good if you could get hold of the local Autosmart rep, mine is about as useful as a pensioners hard on and I need some stuff to top up before winter.
I'd hazard a guess that Autosmart, judging on the fact they have one rep for south wales....would send him along and we'd all just get frustrated.
FBSO will be on hand anyway.

Right all...(sorry for the delay)

I've been looking at dates for this, Saturday 19th is looking like one of the better days for the weather so Saturday 19th it is...
I'm happy to host this at my house but as that's the case it would have to be trusted/trustworthy people only I'm afraid.
10:30am good for people? You will have to PM me for the address.

Not expecting loads of people to turn up. Infact if there's to many people then some may well miss out on getting their car done.

Haven't even used my clio since the last meet... so it very very dusty and smells pretty rancid inside I might just have to book mine in for a valet but I'm more than up for the BBQ I'll bring the hot dogs :p
