I had a mate years ago who had a glass table top covering a V8 too. Every NYE he would feed the thing methanol from a jerrycan, and fire it up with open stacks. Amazing how much your eyes water when a 413 Wedge lights up in your average lounge room........

This week in the shed I fixed the fuel pump on the Vmax, so now I know I need to order some new float bowl Orings. Try again with the thing a bit later.........

I also cleaned the foam air filter on the scoot to try to keep the clay mud and small rocks out for a bit longer, and even gave the thing a polish up!

Put the final colour coats on the frame for the Zook dragbike-to-be-again-eventually. Black metallic with '70s metalflake.

Oh yeah, finished the hothouse racks and trays, made the last raised vege bed in the newer-and-bigger poly tunnel, weeded the Everlastings wildflower meadow in the front yard (I REALLY hate lawn........), and fertilised the new Waxflower hedge.

Only mentioned that stuff, coz that's what's stopping me from bringing the VW Beetle into the shed for some quality time in the foreseeable future.

Spent the day cleaning the rust off a plough tool bar with a cup brush on a grinder, finished with enough time to give it a coat of paint, only to find the Dulux primer I bought from Bunnings needed acetone for thinning & cleanup instead of the turps that I had. Gave up in disgust and went off to mow the lawn instead.

I have similarly been confused with metal etch primer requiring either metho or turps to clean the surface and then the paint needing the other. makes a mess alright.

Today, I've been 'manufacturing' some cable tidy tubes - 12mm poly pipe cut about 10cm long - fold up all the cables for my cameras, lanterns, chargers & stick them in the tube, and a couple of temporary tie down points / tie down rail on the sidecar.

Loading starts any time now.

I've leaving my shed for a couple of weeks on (YES!!!) the bike

When we bought the house a few months ago, the shed consisted of a 6.0m x 6.0m garage with a 2.5m wall height, two roller doors and a concrete floor. There was a 6.0m x 6.0m carport under the same roof line but it had no concrete or doors. The pitch of the roof is 22.5 deg.

I added a 9.0m x 2.5m skillion extension with a 2.5m x 1.5m aluminium window in the centre and a 1.8m x 2.1m aluminium sliding door on the end and concreted that floor. Then I concreted the carport floor, shifted the end wall out and added three roller doors. That's about 95 square metres.

AND Finally

What make is it ?

Dunno. It comes out of QLD apparently.

and How much?

Dunno.

I've spent about eight and a half on it but haven't got the bill for the power yet.

Doon.

Time to start on the missus' Music Studio.

Doonie, you've done a great job but now you've got the shed cleaning momentum up and no shed to clean.... So I'll do you a favour.... You can practice on my small 6x7.5 motorbike shed and work your way up to the boat shed....she's 12.5 x 9 and the boat's been mast up down paynesville for a couple of years...I really need to make some room to bring her home for winter maintenance 2012 .... I keep getting distracted and going for a sail instead

Ps do you race the rc yacht or just play with it? I had a toy one a couple of years ago but the girls decided it'd make a good sumbarine...I really should fix the electrics one day

DR like you I have a few sheds and most are that full you not only have to go outside to turn around you also have to go outside just to change your mind

PS I also have a toy RC yacht that I use on my swimming dam in summer.

It helps pass the time when I'm not on the bike or tractor.

Good to see you have a helper. Prising my son off the Xbox to help is like pulling teeth. While I'm on that, you want to hear him moan "who's on the internet/stop down loading/I'm lagging/get off youtube/blah blah blah"!

FFS I'm the one who goes to work to pay for all this, anyway I've things on in the shed to do...

One of the guys at work locked down internet access for his kids so tight it is just usable. Also they have restricted hours of access too.
The kids have to ask him to open up sites for their school work, only then will he open up the firewall.

Don't race it, just drop it, and the white fishing boat, into Lake Guthridge occasional;ly for a paddle around. I'm mor into building them then sailing them, although there'sno point if you don't drop ém in every now and again.

Doon, who now must build a Music Studio, otherwise I'd be straight down to tidy up your shed.
