I cannot do May 20th, as we are out of the country. Other than the week immediately following that (not back yet) and the Le Mans 24 dates June 15th to 19th inclusive, I would move heaven and earth to be there, as I wouldn't miss it for the world.

I don't envy you trying to find an optimal date and please don't bugger it up on my account if everyone else can make the window I'm away in May.

I'm also away again at the very end of August and into September, but I am guessing that is out of the scope of this?

June 3/4th okay for you Sam, I think it fit in with your commitments above?

The logic behind the earlier dates in the year, so we can use the summer to practise, prep and do the Z1 Tour in August.

June 3rd/4th is perfect :-)

@Sam - thank you for the financial encouragement.
@jet - thank you for the door advice. Panel removal is a bit beyond me at the moment; perhaps after the technical day.
Although the front wings are a new priority, slight cracks forming around a top bolt. I read the post "plastic types for body panels" with interest, as I am now considering new wings (ML suggested they may have been previously repaired and sprayed, so it may be time for new) - I assume it worked out well for @tjs in the end?

I may have a conflict with the Aero Expo at Wycombe but should be able to work around it. Whilst we will be unable to work on the Z fuel system while sharing hanger space with expensive aeroplanes it may be worthwhile asking Rene about parts / kits and tips for the replacement of the rubber fuel hoses. I also seem to recall a modification for the lower sill panel to correct warping which can scratch the doors.

urzzz Welcome to the forum, new OEM front wing now fitted and perfectly painted. If you decide to replace them I would also consider budgeting for new wheel arch liners as the originals will probably be very brittle and shatter as the wing is removed and refitted. Good luck with ML !
