What we're about

Hard to find a mechanic you trust? Have no fear, we'll show you how to do it yourself! We are a group of mechanically minded individuals who want to arm people with knowledge to help them avoid dodgy mechanics.

Just bring yourself, closed toe shoes and some warm clothes you don't mind getting dirty. We supply tools to train with, materials needed for that class, gloves, hand-wash to get the grease off and a test vehicle to actually perform the task yourself.

Come to one class or come to them all, total flexibility for our Meetup members, just come when you please. We'll also send written information after the class that breaks down what we went over that day and any tool you would need to complete the task.

Every 2 Months we will have the free "Coffee and Questions" event
