no i have not sold my car..

over past month or so in what free time i have i have bean bulding a garage at my house MY SELF.

i work in the construction industry so i do no what i am doing and getting things free and cheap has helped.. like my double glazed window wos free from a house i wos demolishing.

its 3.9m wide and 4.8m long so enuff room for my car and room to work on it ( cood get to polos in at a push)

i made it out of timber because i dont like concret ones because thay are cold and damp and a well looked after wood one will last just as long.. plus i dont nead planing permission..

started with the concret floor.

Looks good mate, my supervisors in the middle of doing a very similar thing for his Lotus; for reasons you mention regarding planning permission, ease of construction etc

Nice, did you use a GEN1 mix for the base? :lol: I used to work in the Construction Industry (finance) so I know a bit of jargon!

Looking good Ross!
