  • Two more 2019 LA area Tech days: Oct 27 in Sierra Madre and Nov 10 in Aliso Viejo

    Sunday October 27, Sierra Madre
    9am to 5pm*


    Tech Day and Pot Luck! We are all meeting at Mario Cano's home in Sierra Madre to work on our various car projects, consume beverages, and eat food. We will all share tools and help each other with projects. While this is expected to be an all day thing, it's best to arrive early. For instance, if what you are doing requires jack stands and we only have one set available, it's a first come first served kind of situation. Bring your own parts, fluids, and whatever might be needed to collect anything you drain out (you'll have to dispose of whatever you empty).

    When you sign up, please post a note about what you want to work on, what tools you can bring to share, and what food/drink you can bring. Also, if you don't have a project to work on, but just want to come, bring some food, and hang out, that's cool too!!

    *Date is set, but time may be subject to adjustments.


    Sunday, November 10, Aliso Viejo
    9am to 5pm*


    Tech Day! We are all meeting at Shane Portnoff's shop in Aliso Viejo to work on our various car projects, consume beverages, and eat food. We will all share tools and help each other with projects. While this is expected to be an all day thing, it's best to arrive early. For instance, if what you are doing requires access to a lift, it's a first come first served kind of situation. Bring your own parts, fluids, and whatever might be needed to collect anything you drain out (you'll have to dispose of whatever you empty).

    When you sign up, please post a note about what you want to work on, what tools you can bring to share, and what food/drink you can bring. Also, if you don't have a project to work on, but just want to come, bring some food, and hang out, that's cool too!!

    A Note from our tech day host, Shane:
    "Just so all of you can plan I will have 3-4 lifts available so you can get your car up in the air. If you want to service a differential, trans, coolant, brake fluid, swap brake pads etc. bring your parts and hand tools."

    *Date is set, but time is subject to adjustments.

      We are fortunate to have some generous folks in our group with some cool resources. When I posted in our local group that I would like to organize a tech day, I was pretty blown away that three people volunteered their space and time.

              Not right now there aren't, but that can change. What are your plans? Perhaps we can create something to fit with your itinerary. We are generally able to do drives here all year long.

                    I have a non-car-related commitment Saturday morning the 9th, but the afternoon is mostly open, and then we have the tech day on the 10th. You have my email address from past correspondence so don't hesitate to email me if you are inclined to do so. If you want to grab some coffee or lunch, cool. I enjoyed meeting your daughter in Long Beach during your S2KDays visit and look forward to hearing how she is doing.

                    If your plans have you in town during a different weekend, I'm sure we can put together a group drive. Just give me a few days' notice.

                      I didn’t detail the S2000 yet, but I did get to test the buffer and practice on a daily driver. I’m happy with the results and feel more comfortable with the steps, so my car is next up.

                        Good news, Jason. What buffer, pads and polish did you use?

                          Not sure what my daughter has planned for me. Once I know I will see if I can get together with you.

                            The important part is you get to spend time with your daughter. If other stuff can be worked out, cool. But your family comes first.

                                All of our 2019 Tech and Pot Luck Days are complete and I'm so glad we got to do those. I now have interior lights which light again when the doors are opened (the door switches need to be opened up and cleaned of some corrosion and gunk), a shifter boot that no longer slouches (needed the garden hose washer fix), interior leather that has been cleaned and conditioned, an engine bay that has been given a good once over, and a dashcam that was reinstalled after the windshield was replaced. And my Accent served as the practice surface on which Jason practiced his 3 step paint correction, cleaning, and polishing skills on.

                                Not bad. So much more still on my list, but this was a good start.

                                UP NEXT: Drive In Movie Night at the Mission Tiki Drive In. Probably going to go see Ford v Ferrari.
