Just to mention, I got the sand blast cab from this guy, 175 delivered, I've had a few bits from him and all been classed as seconds but good as new except I had a tool cab that was badly damaged and he didn't hesitate to replace inc postage.

Good evening D. O. S., I don't know anything about Tig welds, but that weld sure looks great ! I guess, as you would say, you have it "sorted"! Don

Thanks for the positive comments, although I think maybe I'm getting there slowly, I've still got a lot of work to do with consistency, lots of 'seat time' left before I weld anything roadster related.

Well not much more progress with the tig unfortunately, however a little progress with the 'Man Room' I've painted all my shelf brackets and got them and the shelves fitted, also made a start on the back cabinets and got the dodgy old plasma mounted (bargain 12.30 off ebay).

Got last coat of paint to do on shelves then stuck for a bit now as I've run out of spare timber and bank say's a def 'NO' lol

Pmsl, yeah must get mysen down the quacks, the current medication clearly isn't working lol.

Its still very much a work in progress and while titting around for ages with the lump on the stand I managed to trash the place.



So I consoled myself with an hour of tidying up and then made a start on populating the shelves, I've found the Persil pots are much better than the Fairy ones, the packaging labels come off dead easy with a gentle heat gun but the Fairy ones don't budge.



I was a little gutted to realised I'd taken a couple of chunks out the wall though, must get the polyfiller out and do some touching up.



And here's where I hide all my 'dirty' storage, the things that don't need to be in the shed, its just a side ally leading to the house.
