Fantastic idilic garage with a fantastic XR2.

Love it.

Had an F plate between 92 and 94 and I absolutely loved that car. Moved on to an XR3i (didnt love nearly as much) then a RWD Sierra Cossy (Even with this beast I was still aching for the XR2).

Would love to buy one for my son. Hes only 12 now but starting to think about getting one to do up over a couple of years but I need a garage like yours.

Thanks for sharing.

Not that great really to be honest, Steve. People are lovely but the location isn't all I wanted it to be, but where else would I get a property with a double floor garage like this without a substantially higher budget than I had? Easy answer.....I wouldn't lol!

I used some from Toolstation in 500mm x 5m rolls. I had to contact adhesive it on which was a bit of a long-winded operation having to fold it into all the box ridges, but I just didn't think any kind of double-sided tape or similar would stand up to the rolling of the door. To make it easier I cut it into 500mm squares to make it easier to handle and fit and just taped down the vertical joins. With the contact adhesive it ain't coming off.

This stuff: https://www.toolstation.com/ybs-radi...or-foam/p27189

It's actually radiator foam, but I just wanted something a few mm thick with a reflective face to prevent the warmer air in the garage from coming into contact with the metal door (which in naturally cold on winter evenings) and condensating. It works for me.
