CGCC: Repair Projects Needed for Automotive Program - Fall 2013

image

The Automotive Program at Calhoun Gilmer Career Center is now accepting live vehicles as lab projects for our students. The details are as follows.


How much does it cost?

Low Labor Price at $5 per hour, charged by the job not the time it takes the student to complete the project. An authorization of at least $50 toward repairs is required for all requests. Part of this process requires you to authorize a dollar amount so that we may start repairs on your car in the event you are unable for contact at that time.


Should I bring my own parts or will you provide them?

We can provide parts for your vehicle. The cost of parts is the same list price that you would pay at the parts store. Of course you are welcome to provide parts for your own vehicle if you know what it needs.


Instructions

Call the Calhoun Gilmer Career Center to set up a time to have your vehicle repaired. You will be asked a few questions such as the Year, Make and Model of your vehicle. Afterwards, we will call you to set up a time when you can drop your vehicle off. It is possible we will need your vehicle for several days.


What not to bring:

•  Body Work
•  Carburetors
•  Vehicles that have been sitting unused.
•  A vehicle that you can’t be without for more than one day.

Make sure you can drop the vehicle off. Customers won’t be waiting at the facility for the vehicle to be repaired.


Vehicles should be 1996 or newer.


Types of Repairs we need:

•  Battery Problems, Starting and charging issues
•  Alternators
•  Brakes
•  Ball Joints,
•  Suspension
•  Wheel Alignment,
•  Loose Steering
•  Shocks & struts
•  Wheel bearings
•  Air Conditioning & Heating
•  Tune ups,
•  water pumps,
•  Misfires
•  Overheating,
•  Coolant Leaks


Frequently Asked Questions:

A student calls me to bring my car in for a repair. What should I expect? The students will request that you bring your car up to the Calhoun Gilmer Career Center before the designated lab and check the car in with the front office. Part of this process requires you to authorize a dollar amount so that we may start repairs on your car in the event you are unable for contact at that time. Once the student has had an opportunity to diagnose your car he will call and give you a preliminary diagnosis and obtain any additional information. The student should also call you with regular progress reports.

Can you come and get my vehicle for me? It is the customer responsibility to deliver the vehicle to us. We do not have a towing service but there are many good ones locally who will be willing to serve you.

Will you diagnose my vehicle for me and then I will do the repairs? No. The focus of the program is that the students get to experience not only the diagnosis, but also the knowledge that the diagnosis was correct. This helps them to build confidence and learn many important things during the repair process.

Can I pick up my car at the end of each day? No. The only time you may take your vehicle is after a completed repair. All parts and service fees must be paid before the vehicle can be released.

How long will the repair take? Students only work during on projects the designated labs which follow class schedules. Because this is a learning environment we are not as efficient as regular retail shops. Therefore most projects will be here for a minimum of 2 lab periods. The bigger the job the more lab periods required to complete the repair.

How may I pay for my repair? We will take cash, check.

What kind of cars are you looking for? This needs to be a good experience for both the customer and the student. We prefer modern technology to supplement the classes. Therefore 1996 and newer is a good place to start. We would like vehicles which have a natural problem. Cars that have already been taken apart, dismantled, sitting for more than a year, or have been modified from original production; do not make good projects. The cars that make the best candidates are ones that are currently licensed and insured; something that has been in use and has developed an issue or concern under normal use.


DISCLAIMER - Repairs made will be done as an instructional project by automotive students.  The school and its employees and agents will not be liable for loss or damage to the vehicle.  You agree that the vehicle will not be released until fees are paid.  A mechanics lien may be assigned to the vehicle to recover those fees.  Students may operate the vehicle for purposes of testing and diagnosis at your risk.

Mt Zion Drive In Theater Faces Closure; Honda’s Project-Drive-In Aims to Keep Outdoor Screens Lit

The Gilmer Free Press

The end of 35mm film distribution by the end of the year could shut down Mt Zion Drive In Theater and Restaurant because of the costly switch to digital projection.

Project Drive-In, a national effort sponsored by Honda to save as many drive-ins as possible, is raising community awareness across the country and giving people easy ways to get involved and ensure that this historic part of American cinema and car culture lives on.

At www.projectdrivein.com, people can vote to determine which five drive-in theaters will receive a new digital projector from Honda.

The site also encourages people to share Project Drive-In with family and friends via social media, email or texts, pledge to see one movie at their local drive-in and contribute to the national save-the-drive-in fund to keep more drive-ins in business.

“We need everyone to vote and show support for our drive in, otherwise our screen will go dark.  We have provided a family destination for over 63 years 3 generations of memories have been made here.  It would be a shame not to be able to continue the tradition for future generations.  Thanks to Honda, our community and patrons have the opportunity to show their support by texting in Vote8 to 444999, or voting online.“, said Bonnie Sands, Manager at Mt Zion Drive In.

Voting on www.projectdrivein.com will take place from August 09 to September 09, 2013. The five winning theaters will be revealed in September and each will host a celebration.

“Cars and drive-in theaters go hand in hand, and it’s our mission to save this slice of Americana that holds such nostalgia for so many of us,” said Alicia Jones, Manager of Honda & Acura Social Marketing American Honda Motor Co., Inc., at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “We’re committed to helping drive-in theaters remain viable and flourish with the move to digital projection.”

Frequently Asked Questions:

A student calls me to bring my car in for a repair. What should I expect? The students will request that you bring your car up to the Calhoun Gilmer Career Center before the designated lab and check the car in with the front office. Part of this process requires you to authorize a dollar amount so that we may start repairs on your car in the event you are unable for contact at that time. Once the student has had an opportunity to diagnose your car he will call and give you a preliminary diagnosis and obtain any additional information. The student should also call you with regular progress reports.

Can you come and get my vehicle for me? It is the customer responsibility to deliver the vehicle to us. We do not have a towing service but there are many good ones locally who will be willing to serve you.

Will you diagnose my vehicle for me and then I will do the repairs? No. The focus of the program is that the students get to experience not only the diagnosis, but also the knowledge that the diagnosis was correct. This helps them to build confidence and learn many important things during the repair process.

Can I pick up my car at the end of each day? No. The only time you may take your vehicle is after a completed repair. All parts and service fees must be paid before the vehicle can be released.

How long will the repair take? Students only work during on projects the designated labs which follow class schedules. Because this is a learning environment we are not as efficient as regular retail shops. Therefore most projects will be here for a minimum of 2 lab periods. The bigger the job the more lab periods required to complete the repair.

How may I pay for my repair? We will take cash, check.

What kind of cars are you looking for? This needs to be a good experience for both the customer and the student. We prefer modern technology to supplement the classes. Therefore 1996 and newer is a good place to start. We would like vehicles which have a natural problem. Cars that have already been taken apart, dismantled, sitting for more than a year, or have been modified from original production; do not make good projects. The cars that make the best candidates are ones that are currently licensed and insured; something that has been in use and has developed an issue or concern under normal use.


DISCLAIMER - Repairs made will be done as an instructional project by automotive students.  The school and its employees and agents will not be liable for loss or damage to the vehicle.  You agree that the vehicle will not be released until fees are paid.  A mechanics lien may be assigned to the vehicle to recover those fees.  Students may operate the vehicle for purposes of testing and diagnosis at your risk.
