Timmus in the South East - June 2022

Hello good people of A2OC,

First of all, my apologies for being very silent on the forum in recent times. This is, in part, due to being neck-deep in major house renovations. I appreciate that this has resulted in many club members waiting a long time for responses to private messages. Rest assured, no message goes unanswered and I will get back to you. Thanks for your patience.

The purpose of this thread is to announce that I'll once again be based in Leighton Buzzard soon. At the beginning of the year, it was my intention to do a 'South East Residency' in the springtime, but the ongoing work on my house has delayed this into the early summer.

From Monday 6th June, I intend to base myself in Leighton Buzzard, just to the north of London. Massive thanks are owed to @Proghound for allowing me to work and live at his house. Compared to previous visits, the length of my upcoming stay in Leighton Buzzard is relatively short. Other commitments means that I can only be away from home for two weeks.
Of course, I shall do my utmost to fulfil as many requests as possible. Should the demand for my time exceed the number of booking slots, I will try to prioritise seeing as many club members as possible. As such, if your desires are likely to use more than a full day of my time, I may request that the job is either trimmed or delayed until a later opportunity.

Please be aware that there are some limitations to the range of services that I can provide when away from home. For example, some upgrades require parts that I won't have the space to transport. Some parts may be out of stock or unavailable due to Brexit or the continued impact of the pandemic. I also cannot complete all upgrades at weekends, so I'd be grateful if Saturdays and Sundays were left available to those with no alternative. The final limitation is that there's only one of me, for which some may be much relieved!

At the bottom of this message, I have tagged many club members who have made contact with me in recent months who may appreciate my greater proximity. However, this is not an exhaustive or exclusive list; my services are open to all who are able to meet me.

For those who are unfamiliar with my services, an overview can be seen here:

The provisional schedule is shown below, hopefully to be cast in stone as soon as possible. I appreciate that 'AM' and 'PM' are a little vague, but I'll arrange precise times with you all once things start falling into place.

Kind regards,

Tom

A quick note from @Proghound:

Once the bookings are finalised I will PM everyone who's coming with the location postcode, 'last 50 yards' directions and, for those of you who don't have satnavs, route suggestions from the motorways. I look forward to welcoming you all, friends old and new :)

Good afternoon Tom, please can I book in the morning of Sunday 19th for the reason I explained for (hopefully) sorting of my tailgate lock, fitting of Cruise Control, and hopefully one or two other bits.

Many thanks

Good Afternoon Tom,

Can I book a weekday pm slot (I am not a lark!), any is as good as any other to give you scheduling flexibility.

Two jobs, wiring for heated seats, and number plate light and finger press (I have ready) release on boot lid.

Cheers.

Andy

Hi Tom,

I sent you a PM a few weeks ago about a stereo/Bose fix. If this is something you're able to take on, Friday 10th or 17th would be best, but I'm flexible on other dates.

Hi Tom,
Could I book a session with you to have cruise control and (generic) rear parking sensors fitted, plus a new aerial (I believe this to be the problem to the non-existing radio reception)?
I could be available any time on 9th, 17th, 18th or 19th.
Regards, Dan

This is, in part, due to being neck-deep in major house renovations.
Hello folks,

Many thanks for all your messages, both here and privately. I've got a few urgent tasks to attend to on the house today, but shall return my attentions to your enquiries and the Leighton Buzzard schedule later this afternoon.

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom, I am looking to get the multifunction steering wheel fitted and have a look at some electric gremlins :) I can be quite flexible, would the first week (not bothered about the precise day) be possible (7th, 8th, 9th, 10th)?

Hello folks,

@adrenalin222 , @Techno , @ashley7715 , @gangitano85 , @Lymus , @Cenick , @x3awm , @Andrew , @dandare131

Many thanks for getting in touch and for listing the times that you're available. Knowing your preferences and alternatives is really helpful to me when arranging the schedule, so thank you all.

Please see the schedule towards the bottom of Post 1. I have added your names to the schedule based on your availability and how long I perceive the job is likely to take. At present, your names are all in italics to indicate that this booking has not yet been set in stone. Names in normal upright letters are confirmed.

Could you please take a look and confirm that you're happy with your allocated slot?

I appreciate that some enquiries were, at this stage, only provisional. However, I've assigned you a slot to ensure that your preferred day/time is not otherwise allocated whilst we discuss the specifics. At this stage, whilst your name remains in italics, I don't consider you to have made a firm commitment.

I shall continue to discuss details with you all individually, via private message.

Cheers,

Tom
