So after the last couple of years of doing a bit of a meet up of P38 owners from various parts of the country (I think Morat still holds the record for coming from Yorkshire!) I haven't really had much time with work, and the rest of life going a bit crazy this year to put much thought into any of it.

As it was mentioned in one of the other threads, I figured I'd start a fresh thread for anyone to register their interest in it possibly happening again this year..
Last year was a group buy on headlinings, and re-trimming a number of them over the weekend - followed by Sloth giving me a hand swapping the modulator block on my RR long into the night!

I'm not sure what people would want to get done this year - I'm getting my RR back from transmission garage tomorrow, as I've just had the autobox pulled out and reconditioned, so there isn't really much major on the list of things that I want to do on mine. If I get around to it, then I might start looking at getting a winch, and then I can finally fit the factory winch tray that's been sitting in the garage for the last 3 odd years! But I'm also happy to help out others with things they want looking at - electrical is my speciality! Though I have tools for doing ball joints, pressing out/in radius arm bushes and the likes aswell.

If you're interested, then leave a reply below - with anything that you would like to try and get done... and also when suits. I'm only really free the weekend of 28th/29th July and 4th/5th August at the moment - though could possibly go 18th/19th August too.

July I’m ok. Or later August dates I’m ok.
Only thing I need is head lining, but I’m not that bothered about it, I’m looking at different coverings ( leather ),,
Rick, the seats your better off doing one at a time, there is a diy guide on the other site I think, it’s just a matter of strip down, repair the break, heat shield and reassembly, takes a few hours per seat.

Blend motors, yup
Headlining, yup,
Suspension, yup
Heated seats, hmm, maybe we leave that one to Marty. I did mine but I'd need more than a weekend......

The later the better for me. I don't have anything needed on mine but I'll give others a hand with whatever.

If I get my arse into gear, and order the parts, I could possibly do an instructional on heated seats... I'm going to replace the elements in my '98 I'm restoring with new ones, and the seats are loose in the vehicle at the moment, so could do them over the weekend too and then others can actually see how everything comes apart.

How did I miss this thread?
I'm up for it..If the dates work. You'll have to excuse the poor state of the Duchess.
BBQ?
I'm ok for the current list but I'd love to have a crack at adjusting the steering box and tracking - with adult supervision...

Well it's a long way - here is the place mark on Google Earth - does that work ? Lat 36°45'51.74"N Long 3°56'2.98"W

Can't get the place mark to appear here so you will have to do with LatLong !

Well, due to work and things filling up my summer rather more than I anticipated - I'm currently only able to do the 4th/5th of August - otherwise we are starting to get into September - which is when I'm generally busier again!

If people are interested in the 4th/5th then let me know.

This link should help people trying to find it :)

I'd love to come along to a Summer Camp but it will have to wait until next year (if there is one!).

I'm really sorry :(
SWMBO has invited guests up that weekend.
I could do 11/12th or 25/26th - but don't change if it knocks anyone else out!

I'm away working the 11th/12th and the 25th/26th - so you're welcome to do something then... but you'll have to find a different workshop to do it at! :)
