    Not been on here for ages, since Tapatalk doesn't work anymore I have lost may main form of access.

    Anyway -

    Tons done, workshop up and running nicely, have a 2 post ramp in there as well!

    Workshop has paid for itself in fixing the family XC90 as well as replacing the turbo on my golf R that took a trip down the exhaust when I overtook someone!

    Is there an easy way to get pics on here without hosting them somewhere and linking to them at which point I end up getting bored and move on?

    Here are a few pics of the workshop as we were sorting it out and the last couple as we were fitting the ramp.
    The floor needs painting again now as it’s had a lot of abuse.

    Been tidying up the inside a bit. Although pretty solid there were a few hidden rusty bits that needed patching up.
    In terms of the “where do you stop” question that I keep asking myself this is it on the inside.
    Wire wheeled the floors and bulkhead area really well. Welded up any holes so it’s solid, drowned it in Kurust and painted it all with hammerite.

    Started putting some of the heating and ventilation bits back in.
    I restored it all a few years ago and with a quick wipe down all still looks great.
    Now I can work out where the ECU will live and the best way to run the wiring which I need to crack on with.

    Looks great.
    What's the dimensions of the workshop? Looks about 18' wide and maybe 30' long?

    Not actually measured it.
    Feels a lot smaller now the ramp is in there and can only fit a couple of cars in realistically along with the kids toys (quad, buggy and scale caterham)

    Not measured it? Don't you realise that size matters?!
