    At least you get an answer ... I don't think Alexa understands my Scottish accent ... I find myself shouting at her several times simply to get her to play local radio!

    As I can't get to my workshop I built one at home-
    Mt dear wife bought , at great expense, a monthly magazine with a monthly built it model garage of the 70's.
    15 years later I have managed to get it built, took two weeks almost full time but now ready for final detailing.
    It's in1:18 scale so a spanner is 2mm long, tiny.

    Since then scratch made a pair of ramps and working on a small compressor.


    I put my short range specs on the car as an idea as to how tiny 1:18 is.

    Back to work-ish, although strictly speaking, and my god these Spanish rules are strict, we shouldn't be unless a "vital worker" or unable to work from home", I had to risk going to the stables first and then 45 minuets to the workshop. I passed a couple of check points without being stopped thank heaven as it could have meant a nasty fine as I was "out of my local area". Unlike the UK things are not "advised", it's the law.

    I had to remove the rear swing arm from an Aeon Cobra 180RS quad that had broken and weld the two parts together and reinforce it too, not too big a job but the next day was spent mostly in a hot tub with lots of Radox easing my aches and pains, I am certainly not as young as I was, that's for sure.

    We are entering 'stage 2' on Monday and a little more freedom and more places open but no shopping centers or big stores, must be under 400M2 so I hope in another week or ten days we go to 'stage 3' and the bigger shops can open as I need a lot of stuff from the local Chinese shop that sells everything.

    Trying to find a 400cc or 500cc utility quad for the stables, CHEAP, a fixer-upper will do, as the poor little Cobra is struggling, not power wise as I have geared the GY6 way down as the ranch is quite hilly from paddock to paddock but chassis wise, hence the broken rear swing arm, it needs a bigger, tougher vehicle to tow all that horse crap about and 33 horses produce 40 buckets of it a day. There are a couple of old Honda quads on Ebay (400 to 500 pounds) that would be great but they are in the UK and Spanish prices are stupid expensive, even for a really old one.
