OK... take 2 on this.
I'm hoping to have the rust repairs completed in the next few weeks, so we can now start looking at doing this again!

The LightMaster (Bruce) needs some urgent 'maintenance' performed on his Zed over the New Year holidays.
It's basicly a suspension & brakes refresh with a small amount of rust repair thrown in.

Date: Sat 16th Feb.
Time: I'll be starting at 8am, but just turn up at whatever time suits you!

Be aware the later you rock-up the less there will be for you to do!

This will be a great opportunity for newer members to learn a how to work on their Zeds as well.
BBQ & refreshments will be provided.
Location will be at my home workshop near Warragul, Vic. PM me for the address ;)

Current list of jobs to do:
Re-install dash
Replace heater hoses
Reinstall replacement centre console
Tie-Rods
Radius Rod bushes
S/Rack bushes
Front Sway bar bushes
New front wheel bearings
New front brake rotors
Swap over better condition callipers
New front pads
Front damper inserts
Rear damper inserts
Rear inner LCA bushes
Inspect rear brakes
Replace headlights & globes
Change out fuel tank sender
Remedy DS door lock


Any interest or suggestions would be appreciated!

I'd be interested in attending.

I might even get a one day pass and bring my car up there for the critical eyes to make suggestions for improvement!

Well some much needed chassis rails arrived today, & that makes me that much closer to finishing the rust repairs.
So I guess it's time to start throwing dates around...!

I'm unavailable on the weekeds of Feb 9/10th & 16/17th - rest are free (atm), so what are peoples thoughts of a date?

Right, I've moved my dates around & I'm locking it in for Saturday the 16th of Feb.
Is the majority OK with this date?
