You'd think with lockdown the page would be overflowing with questions and info on builds as for the past year we've had an excess of the one thing most struggle with ( or so we are told ) ...TIME ??

Hi Kev, I've been working on 4 projects since lockdown started, with 3 nearly finished. Did post some pictures up on My Gassers thread. Seemed to be no interest in them, so I don't really bother to post other than the odd picture.

The garage with my 32 in is 18 miles away (27 min drive) and isn't deemed local enough for me not to break lock down rules by visiting it. I am so close to being ready for an MOT that I cant wait to get back there.

At home I have been refurbishing our 68 airstream so all is not lost

I honestly don't know why people don't comment , there's even a 'LIKE' button so no one has to type to show appreciation.

It has been mentioned before that a lot of people are only interested in their OWN build, even when visiting shops working on their cars for them. To me it's like going to a car show and only taking pictures of your own car there ??

My excuse is thatI needed a damn good service just before Xmas with lots of top ups of vital fluids. Plus the lockdown meant my helper monkey couldn't come round so reliant purely on my own ( sadly lacking ) efforts.

Once in a lifetime opportunity missed, a year of undebateable garage time.
Without my old attached garage workshop I missed the dream ticket.

Ok, I'll start the dream bullshit 'what I would of done' bit...

Humber Hawk, small block Chevy.
Harley chop.
LS mill in Boxster.

;)

I have the same issue with distance, my workshop is 14 miles away which is deemed too far for a non-essential journey......it is essential as far as I’m concerned!

The other issue could have been that those who had the extra time maybe didn’t have the funds due to having the time due to redundancy or being furloughed on a reduced income.

Built 2x 30 Ford coupes and a Landrover during lockdown, but I always jinx my stuff by posting pics so just read other folks stuff for inspiration :)
