Hey Guys,

Per fly's post about the DIY garage, I figure we try and start a group club meet there and possibly work on getting a group discount to work on our cars there. It sounds like a great idea, and having a trip down there and sharing knowledge about our cars so we become more independent with our repairs, is not only going to save us gobs of money, but we could also have a place to hang out sometimes or even hold events, should an official club for Legacy gets started up for this group.

Here is the info on the DIY Garage:

So if you are interested, please vote in the poll so we can get a tally on how good or bad an idea this is.

Now, some limitations: Engine work (tear downs) is not recommended, or transmission tear downs. This stuff is best left to your mechanic to do as they have the tools and experience to build them back up correctly. But minor things like oil changes, diff flui changes/flsuh, radiator changes/flush, brakes, etc would be ideal. You can even change out tires and balance them!! However, I don't think they have an alignment machine there. So make sure your alignment is good before and after you do your own work.

Enjoy and thanks for your time and vote!
