Looking forward to meeting everybody.

    Welcome to the club, Dan!

    I look forward to meeting you. Dana and I can give you some A/C pointers as we are both preparing to redo ours. Be sure to send an email to deloreanclubfl@gmail.com with your contact and car info so I can add you to our mailing list.

    Does anyone in the group here need R-12 and have the ability to recover it? I've got probably around 2 lbs still in my car, but I've been wanting to convert to R-134a for a while so I can do my own service. I know that R-12 is not cheap and I'd happily give it away to whoever is able to capture and use it.

    I'm planning on being at this event too. I'll probably bring a couple small projects but nothing is dire; if others need help, I'll do my best to lend a hand.

    Have you ever wondered what your car looked like underneath? Have you ever wanted to check or re-torque your TABs but weren't sure how to go about it? Do you have some small-ish jobs to do on your car that would be made 1000% simpler if you only had a lift? Well, my friends... for the first time in a good long while we're going to hold our Tech Day at an actual shop.

    With a lift.

    And a compressor.

    Our friend Bruce Coulombe of Coulombe Enterprises LLC has graciously offered to host this DCF Tech Day at his shop in Oviedo, FL. For those of you not familiar with Central FL, it is located just East of the Orlando Metro area:

    We are still working out food for the event, and we will post here once we figure that part out. I will bring my Torsion Bar rig (with new and improved hex bit) in case there are any door adjustments needed. We hope to see you guys there!

    For lunch, we will be having subs and chips, water and gatorade will be available as well. If you would like to bring your own beverages, you are welcome to do so.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday at 10!

    I'm sorry to write this, but my vehicle is not ready for tech day. Having new weather stripping put in and final touches on the A/C. However, I will show up for the event anyways without my DeLorean.

    That's fine, we'll see you there without your car!

    Totally! This will be my 3rd Tech Day, but my first one where I'll actually be able to bring my car. I still have things to do as well, some door seals and seat covers, etc., but it's almost show ready.

    Coming without your car is still really valuable. I learned lots during the first two and met some great people.

    Car is dusted off and ready for the morning......

    Wish I could go, but committed to a Corvette show on 1 October in Kissimmee OldTown (October Vettefest). Will plan on seeing everyone at the Lakeland show on the 15th!
