The final Move

Its seems to of taken for ever, and I have been gifted time, but I finally moved the last of the items from the “shed of plenty” my old workshop at the houseI moved out of in October last year. Its been a whole day of car trips hauling engine...

BSA Ariel 3

Yep that right a Moped…. Its a three wheeler and it looked like this when new. Mine however don’t look anything like this, but its a project to keep me busy in the shed. Yesterday after rescuing it from the garage, where it had been in storage, I got it...

TR6 Engine

TR6 Engine recon

For my sins I have agreed to rebuild next door’s TR6 engine, its been sat around since the mid 1980’s and filled with oil to stop it seizing. That oil was like sludge, stank and made a right mess. The good news its having stripped it down, the bores look...

Today has been a rest day, after three days of going at it fully I felt I needed a rest day before I go back to real work. But I did need to tidy up the shed as it was a complete mess. I have laid the carpet tiles sorted...

Shed of Plenty

Shed final

Well this morning the gloss paint was still wet, so I had to be careful I did not touch the walls as I moved back into the shed. First job was to screw the rack units back to the walls, get the draw unit back in and put up the...
