    Thankyou it may be a while as I still have the race car to sort and a new "Barn," for both mine, my sons and my daughters projects....... oh and then there's the Rv and my personal car ....... I thought life was meant to get easier as you got older, ��


    Will start a thread at some point over the weekend .... with pictures


    Got some ideas rolling around in my head and 2 different paint schemes


    This may turn into a side line business depending on funds and availability of cars as I had my own garage for 23 years, 5 years on and I seem to be needing the stress in my life lol

    I can say at 75 it just gets worse. less time as family increases, wife and kids demands increase, money decreases and time just flies. So much to do 10 years on I don't know how I ever found time for work.

    Like today, Plan A, breakfast 09:00 , take wife to second Covid jab 11:00, back home via shopping and off to the 'shed' by 12:00, Actual, part 1, OK, meet brother in law also having his jab, they talk for half an hour, then i invited for a snack and coffee, then bigger shopping and home at 13:30, then problem with post to clear up on-line, now gone 14:00 so day buggered up and no time for the 'shed'. This means tomorrow will have to be rearranged. Grrrr.

    Thankfully, my 4 step children and my daughter have all been told not to expect us to be your normal grand parents. so 1 has flowers for children, the other has rabbits, my daughter just wants to party and scuba dive, which leaves the Twins who are 22, step daughter who never leaves the house apart from to go to work, we already think shes going to be a spinster as know one will put up with her. My step son, who also has Asbergers takes after me and is into his motors and know one will every change that. he also realises being a parent is something he could never cope with.


    Thankfully i had both my vaccines earlier this year as im classed as vunerable due to an exploding Colon

    im lucky in some ways as everyone knows if im working on the cars, dont bother me. which works really well. but i do know the feeling of where does the days go, ive retired twice and still never had enough time to complete all projects. Normally i get asked to go back to work as there sick of me wanting to be in the workshop. Bit like the late and great Fred Dibna

    over the past 5 years ive actually not worked at weekends which is allowing me to complete many projects
