Air-Schooled Lesson Days
A typical Air-Schooled day is equal parts fun, educational, and helpful. Expect to get your hands dirty, while having fun learning about your classic Volkswagen.
We meet over coffee wherever your Volkswagen lives, and start with an overview of the car, your plan for it, and how I can help you achieve it. Expect to start with a cold engine valve adjustment if you are not an Air-Schooled graduate!
Before lunchtime, we will complete a tune-up and any maintenance that comes with the territory. The second half of the day will be dedicated to safety checks, specific projects, other maintenance, restoration efforts, and driving lessons. We will cover common problems, what to do about them, and how to deal with roadside troubles.
To be equal parts fun, helpful, and productive, each unique car/human combination deserves a unique experience. There is no "standard" curriculum, but we'll usually cover the following topics:
- Valve adjustments
- Ignition system tuning and maintenance
- Carburetor/fuel injection troubleshooting
- Safety checks
- Oil and filter changes
- Steering and suspension inspections
- Brake inspections and maintenance
- Restoration/preservation techniques
Parts will need to be ordered, so let's do our best to come up with the day's curriculum well in advance. Once we have settled on a date, $100 deposits are required in advance. Please do not send a deposit in until we have agreed on a date.
$100 non-refundable deposit due in advance
See you on the road,
Robbie and Buddy
