Mod Party 12/02

Waylen Mod Party

WRAPUP: A Way Motor Works Mod party is a great way to spend a cold snowy December Saturday!!

A bunch of MINI’s braved the cold weather and bumpy snow covered roads to hang out for the day in a warm spacious professionally setup garage/shop. Waylen spent a light day installing an intake, Angel eyes, an under strut system, oil change, strut tower reinforcement plate, IPod adapter and more, as well as sharing racing stories, tuning and mantenance tips, and even a small practical joke (sorry Blake)..

Huge thanks to Waylen for hauling out to Chicagoland, and club member Blake for providing a fantastic working environment.

If you missed out this time and wanted some (or more) work done don’t worry, because we are hoping to get Waylen back sometime this spring or summer for another day.
