All, please try to be specific about what you plan to do as we would like to be as prepared as possible in the shop.

See the first post for a list of things that are good ideas for the shop day (and examples of things that cannot be done), keep in mind that if you run over the 2 hour limit, it will be another $20. Also remember the alignment rack is also available. As always, first come first served.

As a personal note, here are some additional things (partly from having run the shop days in the past, and partly from having been a technician myself):

1. If you are going to need to buy parts from the parts counter (remember they will be having a Big Event discount), do so BEFORE you are called to go into the shop, this will maximize your time in the shop bay, as soon as your wheels are in the garage, the clock starts, it doesn’t stop if you need to hit the parts counter.
2. Do not forget to check your car before you pull it out of the shop, one of the techs tools might have accidentally been left in the cabin.
3. There's one (1) Alignment rack, In the past, we've been able to do 1 alignment per hour, but they've got a new one, and it has much more appropriate ramps for lowered cars, so we're uncharted for how many we can do!

And be on the look-out for these two SEMA cars to be featured at the Big Event as well!
