2/5/17...

The Man Cave is up!


Just got to fill it with Man Stuff LOL, I am having an Electrician to install Power to the Garage and will be getting probably 4 Florescent Strip Lights along with a a few Plug Sockets in various places, A tool Box, Work Bench and some Shelving/Racking.

It is more than big enough inside! Should have no worries carrying out Minor Mechanical Work and Detailing in there, Hoping to fit a couple of Motorbikes in there too.

Great investment, Very happy that I finally have a decent Garage. I can foresee many hours of my time spent in here LOL.

I wish my garage was as good as that, with the wind blowing as it has been, my car gets covered in let's say muck. Top job mate, very envious.

Apologies for the lack of updates!

I still have the Fabia VRS been about 7 Months now and it has been a very good purchase after selling the Golf R in March, Just had a Full Service and Rear Discs and Pads using Genuine Parts. It still gets Detailed most Weeks and will soon be getting the Winter Steelies fitted. I will get some more pictures of it very soon!

The Garage is now finished, The Ramp was broken up and re-laid with a less severe angle on the ramp, The Base was given a 2 x Part Resin Coating which is Water Resistant, I then had Power Installed with Strip Lights and Sockets and have fully Carpeted it using Heavy Duty Carpet Tiles.

I also have a new found love of Motorbikes, I have just sold my CBR600 and have purchased a Honda CB500 as a Winter Bike.

Plan is to have a small collection of Bikes and having a break from Cars, Ofcourse I will be keeping the Fabia as a daily but I doubt I will be buying a second Car now to keep in the Garage.
