The Auto Hobby Shop operates much as the Arts and Crafts Center, offering a do-it-yourself approach along with professional auto advice. The shop is an economical way to save customers money on vehicle repair and maintenance. Some of the many services available include: a large fully equipped garage with 14 work stations (one large enough for a small RV), a tool crib, two engine rebuild stalls, three lube and oil racks with power lifts, a tire changing machine, a hydraulic press, bench grinder, and a drill press. There is also a secured parking lot behind the shop for you to store your vehicle while working on larger projects that take more than a day to complete.
The professional staff is on hand to offer technical advice when needed. The shops mechanics will also do some work for you if desired. Some of these services are: inspection of brakes, drum and rotor turning, computerized alignments, McPherson strut & spring compressing, spin balancing tires, computerized check engine analysis and air conditioning service.
The Auto Hobby Shop is also home to the only POV car wash services available on base. There are four "do-it-yourself" high pressure wash stalls and four vacuum machines as well one automatic drive in car wash to blast away the dirt and grime and keep your vehicle bright and shining.
Located adjacent to, and run by the Auto Hobby Shop, is the POV "For Sale" lot. Authorized personnel can register their vehicles with the shop and for a small monthly fee, display them for sale to other base personnel and visitors.
