  4. Indeed, you will never have enough space... I still have another shed with a load of bits, plus an M30B34 lump, a 3.64 large case LSD, doors, boot, and 2 sets of wheels in my fathers garage !!! I need to clear out....
  5. Thanks, it's coming along ! I have now got rid of my temporary storage so a lot of stuff has gone in there that will need to be moved/sold, the workshop end is full of stuff which needs to either be sold or given away ! May post a few items on here at some point... I have power and a little lighting, but my bro in law (sparky) is doing it in his own time between work etc so it's taking a while so I still have a number of sockets and lights to go up. Started tidying outside and making it look a bit more presentable. I need to get rid of some of the extra furniture, celotex sheets, Porsche Techart wheels etc as soon as I can and then get my tools and spares organised over the winter.
