    Great job

    You can always drive in at a jaunty angle to have front and rear space

    You'll soon fill up the space

    well done ian, double the size mate and i'm happy to take the blame. if reversing in is an issue your 'cheap skates' will allow the back to be manouvered round. for the first time you'll be able to work all round it without constant shunting around.
    regards, neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Life has been very busy recently, but somehow Ive snatched moments here and there to get garage nearly finished.


















    Probably would have been better to get some help, but I had a struggle on my own (typical!) and it wasn't looking good at this point.


    But with some juggling about I managed to swing it round. Must buy another pair of skates to make it easier.






    Soon be onto investigating engine issues, maybe have truck on road in time for winter!

    I may live in East London, I may have a number plate that reads "Chopt", but I do NOT use 6" wheel spacers!

    Got wooden garage and lined walls with ply, insetting dry line powerpoint boxes into the ply. Never got around to ceiling, but would use ply as well as future maintenance just means unscrewing boards rather than sacrificing the plasterboard and consequent dust explosion.

    I went for plasterboard to lessen the chance of sparks from grinder welder etc starting any fire with the wood.
    Also its nice to paint it white to brighten things up and help reflect the light from the LED light panels.
    I'm wondering how long its gonna stay looking like that though!

    Love the garage mod, I could do with the same as I already have 5 motorbikes, a lathe, bench and milling machine in mine and to say its a little tight would be an understatement!

    But, hey, if you live in Norfolk you should have loadsaroom!


    Meanwhile, here in overpriced cramped London I think Ive finished




    It has cost me about the equivalent of 18 months rental of a council garage, mostly done on very tight budget, although I splashed out on some nice exterior cladding so that it looks nice from the house.

    Its taken best part of 6 months to do in whatever spare bits of time I could snatch.

    Strangely, I think Ive enjoyed it just as much as building a hotrod! Its all about the satisfaction of accomplishing stuff I guess.

    Anyway, now I can finally turn my attention to sorting out the issues on my truck!
