Join National Capital Chapter at Bimmerwerks for a DIY. The Do-It-Yourself (DIY) program allows NCC members work on their own cars under the guidance of experienced members and technicians provided by the DIY sponsors. The purpose of a DIY event is to learn and practice proper maintenance. Access to the sponsor’s lifts is timeboxed within a two-hour time period. There are typically several NCC members who can assist you when an extra pair of hands or advice is needed. We are happy to show newcomers the joys of working on your own car. Most events start at between 8 am and 9 am and typically finish at 2 pm. Lunch for the event is provided by the club. DIY Event Types Large DIYs will be held at sponsors with six or more available lifts, smaller ones at sponsors with five or less. Please note that jobs accepted for a DIY are based on the sponsor’s agreement. There may be occasions where a complex job is not accepted, or a sponsor only wants to have smaller, less complex jobs performed. Ladies Are Welcome During the year, we are stage several DIY (LDIY) events that are geared as introduction to the DIY experience. We also have a ladies’ introduction overview at several DIY events in conjunction with new member orientations. This gives you an opportunity to hear about LDIY events from ladies that have participated in the past. It also allows you to see an event in progress and the jobs that can be performed. Mary Snyder is the LDIY coordinator and has designed the LDIY program to serve the novice and advanced DIY’er. Registration Registration opens Opens Oct 1 12:00 AM. Registration for DIY Events is through the MotorSport Reg website. Registration usually opens four weeks before each scheduled DIY and closes two weeks before the DIY. You may register as either a worker or a helper. When you register, you will be asked to identify whether you are a worker or a helper, the job(s) you are requesting to perform, the vehicle you will be working on for the event, and any special tools needs. You will receive confirmation of your attendance to the DIY by the coordinator no later than the Monday (five days) prior to the event.
