Finding more and more little quality touches, these little tabs on the back of the seat are cool.

I hear you David.

I used to have to do cars on my gravel driveway with a car port for cover, or a wind tunnel as it often was!

I started renting a small unit (about the size of a double garage) up at a local place which is perfect for doing one car at a time, more than ample for the hobbyist I am.
A bigger unit (where the Y10 is now) became available last year which I share with a friend (the Peugeot owner) where we can store or work on cars in the dry and relative warm. Nice bright electrics inc 3 phase should we require it, even an inside loo washroom! Rent isn't too bad either, only downside is it being a 30 to 40 minute drive away from home depending on traffic.

We also had the fortune for it to have an inspection pit previously installed by the HGV repair people who rented it, a proper steel sided one with lights and steps. Not quite as deep as a normal car one though as they did trailer repairs, they'd not be able to reach otherwise! But is very handy. I had to make some removable covers for it though as was left open!

Comes in handy though, more so in a lot of ways than a ramp which would be permanently taking up space.

Y10 only just wide enough for it though! My lads' Hillman Imp has to be used very carefully over it!

A good sized workshop is a wonderful place to be in! Do you have pit boards?

Yes Richard, strong covers for the pit, had to make them myself tough as there was just an open pit when I got there!


Started to collect a few bits and bobs for the car, new rear hatch struts amongst them so as an easy fit I thought I'd get the ball rolling  Grin

Still busy with the integrale but hoping to be able to do a few jobs to the Y10 soon, ready for a fresh MoT next Spring.
