I'm back up and running Clive, clutch fork now all sorted out :wink:
Once Mr T has his radiator sorted we can arrange a date for a visit.
Looks very nice Clive, you'll be able to get a bed & TV in there too :twisted:

Certainly looks great. Pit in the middle? Is it just a one-car garage? Looks big enough for 3...

That looks superb Clive, I'm very envious. :)

As has already been noted, skirting boards in a garage, very flash. 8)

The pit is offset to one side. The skirting boards are to stop the draughts so the central heating is more efficient. 8)
Cheers, Clive.

Won't the Chesterfields be a tight fit in a 289? Terrific garage - where does the Scalextric go?

Well chaps, as Bill will confirm, the build is almost complete. Hopefully I will get my completion certificate next week, but in the meantime the car is now back in its' rightful place. All I need to do now is sort out all the tools that are strewn all over the farm.

I can testify that Clive's new garage is fab.
It'll be even better when the beer fridge & TV are fitted :P
There is enough space for 2 x 289's and a Scalextric track (or train set), should be fun when it's all finished.
Well done Clive :wink:

PS it has a remote control garage door too !!
