Modified the sink so it's the same size as some dexion shelving I have

moved the bench and bolted it to the studs

removed some shelves full of rubbish mostly and parked the bandsaw in there

mounted my bike on the wall

made shelves and doors under the bench

sorted a lot of small scrap and timber offcuts

put steel up on top of the cupboards/shelves to the lwft

added a few extra shelves, hooks and the like

tidied myself silly.




It's all downhill from here

Looks a lot different than the start you had a few years back!

probably, but there's definitely room for a kraut.


My golf is in need of a turbo, backed it in last night with everything still in the shed and room to work on it, so that's a result.

not looking forward to changing the turbo, it's well hidden behind the engine and generously plumbed with a lot of single use stainless hose clips

Or, if gettin' at the turbo is too much work, you could just bypass the turbo with a piece of radiator hose - then, when you mash the throttle, you could just pretend it's an early diesel Rabbit ...Steve
