    Any weekend in March is more preferable for me, but 2nd April is ok if need be.

    Ditto mate!

    Sundays are good for me. Probably better than Saturdays actually.
    Got all the bits for my s-line conversion now so gonna check out spray and fitting days and will let you know if the timing works for me. (and also if I've got any dough left!)

    April 2nd sounds good to me aswell? im fine with saturdays and sundays.

    in terms of where to install i say keep out of central london as even on sundays its busy, Theres no congestion charges on weekends etc so well be fine. Heathrow is nearer to me and there are loads of large car parks local which will be pretty much empty to test out and carry out the work.

    Any other locations are fine as well though as its not a big deal traveling on the outskirts of london, Heathrow is pretty much easy to get to though, even people coming from wales its straight down the m4, a friend from swansea came down last week and it was a 3 hour drive pretty much.

    A3s before July '05 - 1hr 30
    A3s after July '05 - 1hr

    For the day ive calculated i could take on about 6 a day, thats also adding 30mins to each install so were not rushed.

    Since my mother would never forgive I've set the install weekend to fall upon the 9th April. I've PM'd all booked in for the Saturday to make sure that this is okay.

    Jbo0 - thanks for the PM - will look at the dates and it could well be that you could come to mine and use my garage. I live in Bucks near High Wycombe but have a decent sized garage with good lighting. Won't charge you too much for rental...... :O)

    Im not too far from Scotland so Id be willing to travel even just to one customer (as long as my fuel was paid for), but obviously if enough interest in Scotland was generated, a group install would be ideal :)
