    The story so far:
    The build was started in a single car garage:

    Then, after about a year we moved to a double car garage:

    That soon got cluttered up with garden tools, grandson's bike, quad etc., so I went hunting for something a bit bigger.
    How about a 6 car garage with living accommodation above?

    Yes mate! That'll do.
    Photo is taken from about halfway down the high bit so I've got plenty of room for expansion!

    Thanks bud! It's always nice to be appreciated by your peers.
    It's also nice that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel with the build. I suspect it's a train coming the other way though......

    Just returned from a week off work to try and push the project forward a bit.
    Did loads! Welded in the tub flanges and strengthening members to the body, spent a ridiculous amount of time reshaping more of the flip front (long story, but basically I found that the grille panel was banana shaped), added reinforcements to the front hinge. Generally did stuff. Not much of it really photo-worthy.

    The one thing I did take photos of id the trans-tunnel which has now had flanges added to the surround for Dzus fasteners:

    Now the tunnel can come apart for the very last mod.

    I wasted a fair bit of the week with moving duties as we're moving house to an industrial unit with living accommodation.
    This is purely for the toy(s) and not for any commercial enterprise. It's big enough that I have already rented out three spaces to other drag racers, so my project will be joined by a funny car, an altered and a 7-second Plymouth 'slammer. Happy days!
