    Hey all sorry been away for a bit but been busy getting bits done. Yep final total was 26 as a few that said were up for it messed around too long although had plenty of notice and was unable to chase them on the Friday as was busy cleaning ready for JDM Combe :Smile:

    Things done in my final week with the car went as follows.

    Good clean and machine polish last Friday

    Spent Tuesday hiding away all the cables which sadly I didn't take any photo's of as was quite time consuming but now not one cable is visual in the engine bay or through the car.

    Used Wednesday night putting in a fresh set of spark plugs that came with the Supercharger kit.

    Just as a heads up some of you will have seen this
    https://hondakarma.com/threads/red-needs-our-help.183625/live?page=1#post-2303073
    Maybe some haven't.
    I have contacted the Organisers to ask if we can help support
    This cause by maybe being allowed to have a donation bucket on the stand (obviously only when someone is in attendance) along with a little bumph on what it is all about.
    @GSD2013 is one of our members and we should try and help where we can.
    I'll let you know what they say in due course.

    Just had a reply from the organisers.
    Firstly they said it's a bit short notice( :thumbdown: you've got two weeks till showtime).
    Then she said you can't do a charity collection without the written permission of the event manager(ok he's got two weeks to do this).
    The event manager is not available as he is currently on site.(so how long is he going to be there? A bit early to start parking cars up me thinks).
    Anyway we can't do it.
    So my thinking is I'll produce some A4 size posters with details of Red's plight etc etc and at the end I'll put the link to his just giving page.
    If I do enough for 2 for each car on the stand we can display them in the windscreen and rear window so that anyone looking inside the cars can see them.
    That way we are not making a collection but indirectly pointing people to a place where they can make a donation.
    It may work it may not, but at least we are trying to support one of our own.
    Oh by the way folks only 14days to showtime.

    has anyone received their tickets yet?

    perhaps I am being paranoid as I've not had a thing yet.

    Not yet I think it will take a while to sort out, I'll email them and ask when they are expecting to get them out.

    Had no reply yet but this is an extract from an email I got regarding tickets last week.

    Remember you only have until midnight Friday 30/06/2017 to purchase advanced tickets.

    So I don't know how it is going to work as it seems they are still taking ticket orders right up to midnight on the day before showtime.
    Just wondering if they are going to do e-ticketing?

    Not full time Kelsey are very good with communications it just seems to be getting closer and people are probably just concerned about their tickets.
    Oh what I should have said was the First Modern club meeting of the year. Apologies .
