Well.....

I have been working on my new garage... We should be exchanging contracts on our land/property purchase on thursday and completing in January!!! Well thats the plan!

SO I have been busy working in the garage to get it ready for the buggy.... chopping out knackered blockwork and building peers to support a wall etc etc etc...

After xmas my chippy mate will be round to build the 2 barn doors for it and then I can start work on getting the other huge shed on plot reconstructed and will soon be the long term home for my buggy... The garage will be for current projects... I am planning in getting unfinished kit cars in and getting them through the IVA to try and sell for a profit...Failing that I will break a few MGFs up and I might make another K series/or similiar Freestyle conversion :D

If I get my shit together next I am hoping to sell some of my toys and buy an Ultima :D... but not entirely sure it will fit but we will see :D

We are soooooooo close to exchanging now so fingers crossed :D

We should be exchanging contracts on the land and buildings very soon as well...

I decided against new garage dooors... well... I did not like the idea of £1200 for new doors then another £300 to make the frame and what not, so I have made good of the old doors and fitted a new frame and all that jazz... the grand cost of £170 :D

Removed my work benches from one garage and the refitted them in the new garage and had another bonfire :D

Got my wheel alignment gear to get hung up on the wall then its a case of repainting the floor and getting ready to move out on tuesday of my old garage and then into the new one...

I also lost electric :-( may have something to do with me revoking the right to a cable etc but either which way for a few months I will be without electric... I have just added a bit to a tenancy agreement of two offices we own that they have to supply me with the electric but that will take a bit of time :D

I may get a few days putting the buggy back together next week before I go away again for work... yes I do sometimes actually work :D

Well tomorrow is my last day of my old garage...

SO I am doing the wheel alignment and then saying goodbye to it... (I will own it again very soon)

I also lose electric for a bit as well which is quite annoying especially as I just about own a couple of offices right next to it but I need to split the electric meter and stuff which I sense is going to be a headache...

I also need to start drawing up plans for my new shed in the yard as well which I am looking forward to :D That will house my buggy and then the garage will be used for stripping and building other vehicles :D

I have not been doing anything on the buggy recently as we are days away from exchanging on the property/land purchase and I was £382 short of the deposit... lol ANyway we should be all sorted first week of feb :D

Which means I can then get electric back in my garage once i have some spare cash :D and start building my other building in the garden to store the buggy while I build something else.... I am looking at an E30 but not sure at the moment :D
