    How about we have a show and shine/wash n talk day. Got the idea from the Denver club, seems they have a few of these every year. We can talk detailing, mods, part swaps. All we need is a place to meet up, has water, and we can have a communal MINI bath, general yak session.

    Anyone have any ideas about doing this, post them here.

    Good idea! Let's do it. (But after July 20, please.)

    Maybe Mark of Clear Auto Bra might be willing to host once again, especially if some members take the opportunity to have stripes or a bra installed. (Is he on this site already?)

    I need a clear-bra put on and would be willing to drive over and crash your party for one, hopefully you guys have a date that's between the different trips I'm taking this summer.

    Mark, thanks for the offer of your shop, it would be a great place to do this:D

    I will be out of town most of the time until the end of July, so lets start thinking of doing this some time in August. For a start, how about either the weekend of August 15-16, or the next weekend of the 22-23, that way we will be all squeaky clean for the Balducci winery run.

    Mark, let us know what works best for you.

    for what it's worth I'd vote for 8/15 or 8/16 to get all the colorado bugs off from MITM!

    Out of town for the next weekend

    Do what's easiest, love to make it but this isn't around my schedule

    Looks like the clear bra man is open to both weekends

    Agenda ideas-

    Cleaning out the engine bay (mine needs it) I've read a few posts about it and would like some tips.

    Time to start?

    I'll bring my Nomad with me (along with the rest of my detailing stuff and the PC), it's really great for rinsing engine bays and hosing off door-sills without soaking the interior.

    I think we should start early, say 9:00 am, so we avoid the sun/heat.

    Engine bay cleaning would be a good thing to work on, along with interior detailing.

    Deviant, that would be great if you bring your Nomad, I want to see one in action.

    I'm out of town till the end of July, but at this point I say we do both weekends, that way more folks can get a chance to make it to one of them.

    Mark, ( not a note to myself ) let us know if this works for you.

    Mark
