We are opening an extension to our workshop very soon that should enable us to get people in a bit quicker rather than the 2-3 week waits we get in "Race season" that should enable us to also work a lot more efficiently and ultimately reduce some fitting costs.

Any ideas what people would like to see which we could accommodate through working better?
Am thinking along the lines of something like 2x Geo setups on similar cars at same time could give a reduction in time costs as the jigs, tables and lasers are already out so in theory would see a reduction in actual time to do the work.

We also work very closely with Tegiwa and offer all their parts at same costs that can be fitted so maybe something like intake kits and manifolds if done 2 at a time and tuned we could also sort something out.

Any deals we can sort will relate to reduced labour costs only as opposed to parts costs which we can't normally do much about unless its something we are sorting group buys on or parts we are main dealers for.

Just interested to throw a few ideas around.

Only problem is this does mean you may need to have a "friend"....... which maybe a problem for some.

Group Dyno sessions?? Although I know you have charity ones every so often.

Maybe group Mugen grill fitting? You could order 10, all painted at the same time by your blokes, then fitted in a row on one particular day etc?? Plus I assume there would be a healthy discount for forum members gained from fitting/painting. People always love a Mugen discount

Group ex manifold/intake fitting from Tegiwa? same thing

Group geo sounds like prob the best idea for this sort of thing though

Some good ideas there and we are thinking along the same lines.
Already been doing a lot of LSD's and final drive swaps for people with good deals if cars can be left overnight as can do several in 1 hit then

discounts for people who can leave the car with you for a week?
"Airport parking" while on holidays you mean? :lol:

We have always managed to do a good deal on cars left over a longer period say couple of days/week as we can drop on them around other work and as indicated can work out pretty well for the owner if he is going away on business or holiday for a week or so some times.
