  1. No problem at all. I suggested it because your said you'd leave the bottom shelf out (really you'd be keeping it but having it higher than the car) and drive under/into it to keep the full depth of the garage. If you do go down this path, make sure the shelving system you use can handle not having a low shelf to keep it stable and safe. Proper pallet racks are built to do this, not all other systems will.
  2. Also, I have some Dexion stuff left over from when I did my shed shelving. I can do a proper stock take and see what you could build with it but from memory, you could have 2 separate bays (4 uprights) with atleast 2 shelves each. The shelves are nominally 2550 * 900 so a sheet of 2700 * 900 yellow tongue fits with a single cut. pm me your mobilebnumber and I'll send you a couple of photos of what I've done in my shed
  3. Unless the wall is straight (in all planes) and free of kinks, small bumps and so on you'll need to use a batten of some sort to allow you to smooth it out so the sheets fit flush with each other. Otherwise all you'll do is make a bunch of disguised blemishes very visible by putting big sheets with long edges on the wall. An alternative is to coat it with paint or give it a bagged paint finish to make it look cleaner.

    power steering gone limp

    try the nasal spray, it doesn't work for all limpness but it's worth a shot. ⏫
  7. Ronny, In the responses between this one and the quote, there are a few options, about 50/50. But as no one has professionally looked at it, and quoted on it, the speculation of what is busted and needs repair is too much to get a good handle on the real cost. I'm not one for stuffing people around but I reckon you need to get a proper panel repairer to look at it. Panel etc repair or replace but colour remains as what is bought. It then runs and is back to operational status. I hear Benetton style panel colours are coming back into vogue. At the time of needing the repair, you can assess the sale of the daily driver to fund it. There will be an overlap of needing the money for the repairer and the car at the same time but you may be able to sort that out with some short term funding with a realistic market value (and take a further 10% off) or even presale with a delayed delivery of the daily driver.
  8. Ronny, Have you had any quotes to repair it?

    Oil Additves

    as do I. The proper solution is to drive the vehicle more often. Step 1: Let the engine get warm, drive it harder, engine oil gets warmer, drive it harder again, engine oil gets warmer still and so on. Step 2: Repeat weekly. Suddenly the kms are up and the service interval is achieved. Step 3: Change oil, filter, apply grease to bits n pieces. Return to step 1 and repeat.

    You need to give that step up, it's usually a waste of time with a 'no'. I've saved you immeasurable hours that will yield a positive and compounding effect on the motor rebuild.

    Practical, not political

    no, we only have the one child. The formula used is typical male + normal female = regular child Funny observation though!
