Today was wood work day, any spanner monkey will agree, a solid desk is a godsend. Especially with grinders and vices attached to try and get that bush out or cup off a driveshaft that refuses to move.

Well here's mine, over £100 in wood and £20 worth of screws, i've created a masterpiece of immovable object, so i put some tubs on it... :laughing2

Working on the customer waiting area today, painting plywood that thinks its Spongebob Squarepants. I've never used so much paint for so little space in all my life. So this ended up being done by brush :scared

No need to see the paint drying pics but start and half finish will do for now. As you can see in the first picture which was roller, the coverage would mean doing it twice, and I hate painting.

So this area will be blocked off by a little fence, fully carpeted with a load of kids toys, triple sofa and a table full of porn (car magazines).

That needs to be finished by monday, as those with kids will know, the two-week nightmare begins. :groupwave

Doors are open on the car section, only the computer side that's a bombsite.

So have the first car in for a little repair, 52k mile rover 600 SLI 2ltr honda in NFR.

Needs some work on the handbrake, due to it being pointless.
Has a few bumps due to woman rush hour commuter driving but will be forsale after i sort it for its mot.
great tyre and barely any rust as you'd expect from a 52k car.

Bidding starts at £500, anyone interested?
