    Ask and You Shall Receive!!

    The shed has now progressed to the point where it is functional and I can use it. The mezzanine is now finished and all the gym equipment, bikes and the leather lounge is stored up there. Handrails of course were mandatory , and the carpet helps reduce the noise when Plugger and his mates are throwing weights around:

    Underneath the mezzanine is the workshop area, I built a wall to shield this area from the rest of the workshop to try and keep it clean and organised. This area will be benches and storage, music system here and fridge of course.

    And then lined and painted:

    And machines moved in to their final places:

    3-phase power finally got connected at the end of July, so now the whole property (Shed, house, studio and future granny flat will all be on 3-phase):

    And of this week, I finally picked up the new hoist and installed that this week:

    So, that brings us to an update on the Camel. We are waiting for the final bits to be spray painted - the tray and the bulkhead and a few other bits n pieces. A mate up the road is going to do them, but they are in a queue. In the meantime, Plugger went out and bought himself a Ford XR6 ute to drive around in and get him to and from work. He has three part time jobs to keep him busy along with the new girlfriend until the Navy calls him up, which has been delayed due to COVID. So, in the meantime, I have decided to start work on my 1977 Dodge D150 stepside pickup I bought from the 'States a few years ago, and restomod it just to keep myself busy (if you don't include the wife's studio and Plugger's unit that needs to be done....!!).

    Its now fully disassembled and waiting for me to start fabrication once the new welder gets here (the old Unimig had a rectal prolapse so I bought and ESAB, but that's another story). Sorry, totally LR unrelated build this one....

    That's about it for now. Got 6 weeks off so I will potter around and do some work to the shed, the wife's studio and of course the Dodge. Take care everyone and if I don't update until then, I wish you all a very Merry and safe Xmas.

    Cheers,
    Tricky

    Camel - Restarted Project

    Just a quick update guys, The Camel has been restarted and is progressing now after a 4 year hiatus.

    Bulkhead now repaired and painted and we are in the midst of doing the tub.

    Pics soon....and, sorry for all the delays and false starts, a lot has happened in a very short time (Like Plugger has had a baby and building granny flats!).

    Cheers and thanks,
    Tricky
