I love your garage! Organised.

Fully restored already? Guess that's what you can do with early morning starts! Or did you just move it on for a huge profit?

Got to make a buck where and when you can. Saves burning a load of cash on a very deep holed project.

Logi, your just showing off now with all these pics of your garage!
My wheel aches look lovely, there is soooo much mud in them I could grow a lovely crop of tatters! Dreading cleaning it all off and finding what's underneath! Thinking it might be best to wait till after mot as anything without mud looks pretty solid!

The mechanic that lives with us just bought one of those, bloody handy for keeping everything neat and out of the way.

I'm Very green, I don't even have a garage, think I need to pull my finger out and start making and selling jewellery seriously, you never know I may get to designer status before I retire so I can buy a house with a garage!

Shame they don't do a replacement whole van panel.

That top box is probably older than me. Nice play zone - although its dirty awkward shit welding up arches.

Top marks for effort.

Reading through this and other posts I don't know if I an glad or sad I sold my jet when I did. I never had a problem engine wise and it was practically rust free, no advisers on the last MOT. Like some others on the forum my mechanical skills are very limited and I could not stick 2 bars of soap together never mind welding so hats of to you chaps will skill and knowledge and also the help you give to others by passing it on.
