Took the new laser-cut exhaust flanges to John so he can begin making the new system..
And put a floor in my temp shed for while the garage gets demolished -to make way for the new 140sqM one.
Everything takes so damn long!

Is the scratch in the middle? Maybe an excuse to have a blower hanging out of the bonnet. Just cut the offending scratch out!!

Well, like I said, I made some patch panels and mig'd em in.

Don't ya just love molten steel going down your socks, or grabbing something really really hot. Makes me think that leather gloves were designed to hold the heat in long after you've chucked the offending item....

New shed just got finished 8*9 4.5 mtrs tall and installed the 2 post hoist(yay no more greasy back),pulling the chassis off the body to start recoing it.
p.s. when you are unpacking the hoist and the lift arm falls out I have proven it is substantially harder than a big toe. I was of course wearing chinese safety sandals as it was a chinese made hoist.

I walked into my shed today and sighed.. previous owners dodgied up the wiring to the shed with our house powerpoints so it overloads the system as we found out in the pouring rain grrrr!!!
Going to install a sole 3 phase unit and also pinch the old mans hoist winnar!
In the meantime im doing car part shopping
