Garage prep for B112

Postby Fordoholic Nick » Fri Oct 12, 2018 1:25 am

Hi chaps,

So in preparation for the return of B112 from Tickover later today I had a good clean up of the garage this week as the dreaded clutter of unnecessary crap had built up. Was very rewarding getting it all cleaned up and ready for the Laser. Once the clutter had been cleared I had more space to put the good stuff back tidy ! The floor is now pretty much set for painting but as I was up in West Yorkshire visiting my parents too this week did not have the time. Might get it done in the next week or so before the frost kicks in making it too cold to paint. So for now the floor has had a bleedin good scrub with a hard brush and I have laid out some unwanted rugs, carpet on the floor. Am fitting a Garage Defender to it soon too !

So anyway a few pics of the garage both before and after...

So as said was great to get it cleaned out while B112 was away. Shuold look better with the floor painted.

All the best

Nice job Nick!
It must have taken a while as it was daylight when you started the job and dark by the time you finished it..... :)

Thanks Paul. Was great to de-clutter mate. Lots more room and I know where things are now.

Paul for en-bloc garages mine is a a very good size. The bloc opposite mine are smaller so I am lucky. Mine faces South too so in the Winter it gets any Sun and keeps damp away.

Dimensions are 5.3 x 2.7m It tapers up to a good height at the back too. Going to fit a Garage Defender security to it hopefully next week.

Thanks for asking mate. All the best :)
