A JOC member a few months back had his garage security compromised and the Convertible was removed.

I assume that those who undertook this travesty had knowledge of what they were looking for and where to find it.

Posting photos of one's excellent storage and maintenance facilities including views of other adjacent vehicles may not be the most sensible thing to do.

Just a thought.


Can I also add it's making those that don't have this type of space really envious

Colin, When I was a kid, I went to a place with my parents, it must of been a friend of my Dads, it was big land with a house and a barn, I remembered opening the barn and in there was an old dusty car in there, I knew at the time it was not the normal sort of set up we all knew and lived in, and I always remembered it as being something I wanted to strive for, it was a lot of work and time to find it get it and afford, I then had to build the outbuildings.. I really love it here but am surrounded in work and jobs here that I now know I will never get done in my life time no matter how hard I try.. that is quite frustrating but keeps me going everyday :? .. everything needs constant maintenance and so it really is hard work having a large place with land and all the stuff you accumulate when you do have it, sometimes I wonder if I would prefer a simple life.. But I guess I wouldn't have it any other wayImage.. If you don't hear from me for a while on here, I'm probably collapsed up the top corner never to be seen again!!Image

Grant, what are those white cabinets, one with a glass circular window in them? I've not seen one of those before, let alone two!

Well.. If you ever adopt Rag OCD Mart then you will need themImage, the procedure is this>> remove a rag that you will find folded up in the rag cupboard/storage facility, wipe any surface with it, or you hands or even car body work, then place it in the white cabinet on the left, switch on and when you hear a bleep put it in the right cabinet.. when that bleeps.. remove it, fold it, and put it back in the rag cupboard, the result should be as such>>

I have always had a bit of an obsession with RagImage... I remember a few years ago my daughters boyfriend was always hanging around in my barn seeing what I was up-to.. too bloody nosy but I liked himImage, anyway.. I was sorting out my rag cupboard and had some really soft old tee shirt in there, my fave, :P .. I said to him "look at that" and made him feel it, he then looked at me & seemed bewildered.. I said to him "Look & Feel that.. that is a really beautiful bit of Rag".. he didn't understand :? .. nothing stranger than folk!!Image

ImageYes I know StuPot, I had to keep the planning officer happy but he came and went a good few years ago now, so.. I have 3.5m to the ridge.. it's tight for the ramp I am about to install but being on the opposite end of the scale to you with leg length I think I can just about make use at the highest point of the ridgeImage

It's not that Grant, when we moved to this house I had four garages. Double and double length.
But over the years it has gone down to one...

[Note by Moderator VFK44 : The posts not directly relating to restoration of FF 119/133 have now been moved to two different threads in General Discussion - "sheds and workshops" and "Machine Tools"]
Sheds: https://www.joc.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=29953
Machine Tools: https://www.joc.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=30690

I think the two are sufficiently different to deserve two topics.
