6 Months since I was last on the forum, my bad... Big changes at work and moved house (a fixer-upper).  Have been flat out with both, well I still am.  But, at least that means I'm in for a good winter as I now have indoor work space.  :cool:

Pics to follow.  Hope everyone is well.

Good to see you back on.  Thing are good.... in fact you've been off for so long I nearly have the Corrado back on the road.
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.

Holiday cottages on the Isle of Wight for 2-10 people? PM me.

I've seen elsewhere, cleaned it too!  :shocked:

So what have I been up to? Well if this was a home DIY forum we could be here for some time, thankfully it's not so we'll just get to the car stuff......ish.

Hired a car transporter for the house move as it was the easiest way to move all the cars.





New house (over 100 years old) needs everything, the rear is blessed with over a quarter of an acre with a garage in the middle of it.  It's not been used as one for a very long time, needs work but is structurally sound and dry as a bone.

Only one functioning door which was just wide enough to get the golf in after I had a tree taken down and dug a path to the entrance.





Got the golf in not long after moving in but the Mustang and the Van had to wait as neither would fit through the door.



Last week I finally got a very good deal on a suitable door. I think the pictures explain the rest.

Sweet.
Some people are lucky enough to have a single garage, but you have a double. :cool:
Hope you get some good use out of it.

Looks a good size garage, will be very handy with the long dark nights.

I've lived without since my first car and with the amount of work I've put into this one on a driveway, I think it's well deserved and long overdue.

Well that's then plan.  I only ever seem to find the time in the winter, so, providing I get the house where it needs to be before Christmas, expect to see some busy threads from me.

I thought for a horrible second that you had sold it :grin:

Glad to see you've now got no excuse to work on it now :wink:
