Insurance companys and women are very similar to mushrooms! Just keep them in the dark and feed them sh*t!! *laughs*
We probably all do it, to a greater or lesser extent, but having worked for an insurance company in the long distance past, they are always looking for ANY reason not to pay out, so just be aware as you keep 'em in the dark and feed 'em poop - it might just turn round and bite you in the wallet! :laughing2

So let’s get my thread back on track before it becomes a discussion on insurance do’s and don’ts.

3 days until I get the keys!

Current unit a total pig sty do to having to get all my shelves out first.

Can’t wait for the week from hell to start. :clapping

Woohoo, officially have the keys in my hand :clapping

Damn the place looks massive now it's empty, won't be for long though.

I already have my first car booked in as well.

Well, 7 double van loads and not even half the kit is moved.
I think that quantifies nicely the amount of kit we have. That doesn't include car parts either :scared

Beginning to think this is the never-ending story.

Day 3, 7 trips by 2 vans and not even half the kit is here yet. :slapme
On the plus side, kettle and brew tackle is now onsite which showed up another issue. Seeing as i am the only one in the building at the moment, there is no fresh water :glare

Anyway, i'll shut up and post some pics.

I’m an 18 year addict of the r8 having owned all dirivitives bar the l-series. Spanning approximately 235 cars in my previous possession. At my peak insanity I had 14 cars at once, when I had the previous Rover Revival.

23 years of driving it went:
Ford Orion 1.6 Ghia
Opel manta get
Astra 2.0 get mk1
Ford escort rs turbo mk1
Rover 214s (full poverty spec and manual choke)
Rover 216 coupe (amaranth)
And so on for 18 years....*laughs*
