Day 3 of the erection…effectively bar some small finishing we are now watertight and ready for sparkies…

Composite roof on, doors on, windows glazed…

A few twists and turns as a result of taking a standard kit and then adapting it..but very pleased in the outcome…

He left the door wide open and I can’t help but jump through, I was also thinking that there’s so much wood in the picture

I realised that the double entendre would inevitably create a degree of interest amongst what would be otherwise a fairly flaccid subject… :tumbleweed: :rofl:

After 5 years of waiting / struggling without such simple pleasures forgive the excitement…looking forward to a winter of rubbing myself up and down on my Yellow Peril in warm and dry and well lit conditions… :thumbsup:

Day 4 + 1…we finished on day 4..but it took most of day 5 to tidy up, enough sawdust to keep a wood burner going for a whole…pleased how it’s worked out..really wouldn’t want to have less than 6m by 4m external if you want to spend a lot of time pottering in your garage..

No excuses for not tackling most jobs now..

It’s clear now that a moveable scissor jack is the best option for working on this car, in this garage..
