Default 2017 Mid-Atlantic Fall Maintenance Day, Columbia, MD

Fall maintenance day at Lincoln Tech, Saturday, October 14th, 2017 7:30 am - 3.45 pm.



Hello everyone, this post will be updated with the latest information as it becomes available.

It's that time of year again... when the canopies of the honeylocusts begin to be speckled with yellow dots and the yellow poplar leaves begin to look less than excited about life. And Insight owners in the mid-Atlantic region begin to have thoughts of fluid changes, brake work, and underbody inspections.

Come join the rest of your fellow Insighters for a day of fun and... maintenance! at Lincoln Tech, Columbia, MD.

The donation is $15/person and pizza, morning snacks and water will be provided. Please order parts now (sealants, gaskets, hardware, parts). Tools have been available in the past (and there are impact wrenches there), but it is strongly suggested to BYO.

Lincoln tech has a large number of two post lifts and a beautifully spacious indoor facility that is heated/air conditioned so working on your car is pleasant no matter what's happening outside.

Maintenance day is usually followed up with an evening social at a local brewery or bar and duckpin bowling for the brave at heart.

Finally, on the Sunday after, there will be a tour of either the USS Constellation or Fort McHenry if people are interested.




Sign up sheet for the event is here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

All attendees must:

-Wear long pants, closed-toe shoes, and shirts that are not loose enough to catch on machinery.

-Have a valid driver's license, insurance, and registration for attending cars.


Sam

New owner here, but definitely interested in being there. I need some help knowing what I should bring with me. It will be at approximately the 75,000 mark by mid October. Here is the out of the ordinary stuff that has been done to my vehicle since purchase:

43k: Front brakes and rotors, 2 new tires.
45k: New drive belt, air filter
53k: 2 new tires, spark plugs replaced. Valves adjusted & fuel cleaner additive

Hoping to do the full up 75k maintenance, but hopefully have some scholarly mentors as an assist. Looking very forward to meeting all you mid-atlantic friends.

These events have been very successful and fun over the past couple of years. I'll be there of course! Thank you Sam.

@ Goatfarmer: I would get some Honda Manual Transmission fluid, and drainplug washer for an easy fluid change.
