    neil.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_G_platform_(1969)

    Some nice stuff from that era.




    Bit of a weird anniversary.

    A year ago, Dennis in St Louis broke and levelled ground for his replica 1940’s Shell Gas Station



    It was to be a self build, after hours, hobby build.

    Materials came, bits purchased.





    Now looking like this.







    So yesterday I came home via a scrap and recycling yard, yup, going back to them....




    When I stopped on my drive, there was something tucked behind the gate.



    Initially I thought it was Harley that had been run over and slung over the gate.

    Of course it was not, thankfully

    Got in and when I opened it.......

    I realised.

    Another act of random kindness.

    I had recently got a pile of stuff from @Disasterbus and offered some of it out.

    The magazines were claimed by @eternaloptimist and I posted them off to him.

    This parcel originated in Glasgow though, so confused me a bit.

    Still, it makes me smile that this whole paying it forward concept works in such different ways for all of us.

    I love real Mountain Dew and someone had taken note and randomly “repaid” the postage, not that there was ever a “repayment” plan or agreement.


    Just puts it all into context.





    My special treasures

    Thank you.

    Well......

    @CraigRK and I are both as bad as each other.

    We are always coming up with random stuff to make, create or recycle.

    Getting each other excited and worked up till we make rash decisions

    So this thread will hopefully OUT-RANDOM the Random stuff some of you have come to expect from us.

    Feel free to add, comment, advise and most importantly donate bits if you feel you can improve what’s being created.


    So yesterday I stopped at the scrapyard on the way home to look for some bits we needed for this little project.

    WISH LIST:
    Go kart wheels
    Pram wheels.
    Old or new Radio Flyer body
    Galvanised bath (small)
    Plastic pedal tractor engine.
    Anvil

    Get my drift yet??

    Found a tractor. Minus motor.



    Got home with these.



    So after a mid year discussion with my boss today I stopped over at Craigs place off J9 of the M25 (Big mistake) on the way home to pick up some more bits and drop stuff off for him.

    Back seat of my car, also had a roll of roofing felt for Sally’s shed roof.




    Eventually got home at 7pm as the M25 had a 75 minute delay on the way back.

    Unpacked the car. Fed the cat.

    Laid out the basics.



    Added colour.

    Get the idea yet??

    Draw along bootfair or swapmeet, car show wagon.




    So there you go.


    Let’s see what next.

    Been looking for a used, dead Radio Flyer tub to use on this build.

    Tonight I managed to get this Hazet tray and a bunch of tools.

    Should make a nice tray.

    Not as nice as @Johnnybravo has been able to snag, but happy to have a better part than the porta potty.

    Discovered this in my shed.

    Really nice steering gear.



    Sally was helping me unpack the tools from the box.

    Big ones.



    Little ones.



    Included in the tools were quite a few SnapOn tools



    Eventually got it all unpacked, sorted.

    Look closely at just how many tools this purchase netted.




    Eventually we got to this mock up.



    Other end.




    When I shut the garage and walked up, I realised just how nicely the relaunched garden has come up.

    Thanks to Sally.




    I guess next will be the actual build.


    After this. We headed out to the Sheppeyncar meet in the Blazer

    Much more fun than be allowed.

    Only one of the Bootfair venues open today.

    So 50p for Craig.



    Like this a lot for 50p

    Check out the artist in the signature on the back.






    Craig has wanted a coat hook. £4.0



    His wife loves Halloween 20p each.




    £1.00 for a self destructing wire wheel



    20p each.



    Got separated from £3.00 for these here.




    After Bootfair it was home as Sawdust Steve and his daughter were headed here
    Great Guy, great family.



    Steve also brought two oak lounger chairs over

    Claimed by Sally

    Soon to be sanded down and painted.



    Halfway there.




    Job done.


    To stripe or not to stripe.




    And a photo taken on Saturday on the way to a car meeting

    I am glad it got taken as my arms are not long enough for a selfie like that.





    Another good weekend.

    Westmoor farm, Rainham.

    And Greenfields at Wainscott.





    A very good internet friend and mentor on Garage Journal in Australia recently lost the fight against cancer.

    He had inspired many around the world and will be missed a lot.

    Various mementos have been generated in Steve “1/2 Cup” Church’s memory.

    One of his things was to get Quality Shed Time in.


    Thank you Gazza in Australia for the QST stickers.

    @CraigRK obviously snagged one and Dennis Jones gets one too.



    Once I have decided on the right place, which may be inside my house (I live there and pay the mortgage) I will show its place of honour.

    Trusting Steve will approve.

    Continuing on the 54 Bel Air theme @CraigRK and I have spent hours talking about it and all the potential permutations of buying it.

    Including the cost of modifications and service parts and upgrades.

    Not cheap by any means but it will mean a decent safe car if it gets bought.



    More later.

    Took the chairs Sawdust Steve brought over, to Sally’s place in Prozac tonight.

    Left it there as she is gutting her bedroom and it all will go to the tip.




    As always, the little van that can is delivering
