    Is that a beetle I should recognise Rob? :rolleyes:

    Surgical operating theatre type surroundings......... ;)

    A local orthopaedic surgeon says “hi”. We are currently working on his next residence build, so he can move to a rural location NW of Canberra. :)

    Impressed with the garage after spending a few weeks working al fresco. An old bit of carpet keeps me off the stones. Drop a screw or nut and it's get the magnet to find!

    That’s my sons beetle home for a service after his third engine rebuild in a short period of time ......cylinder head temp gauge has fixed his driving style.





    Alpal most of my best work has been done/ was done alfresco or in a cramped little garage. Since my new setup I have done bugger all to any car.

    Don't let old dubber see how clean and tidy your garage is ;) he's got a 3 bay with hoist and just about every tool you'd ever need including lathe, metal saw, hydraulic press, wheel balancer (old skool) and heaps of parts ..... think he needs a bed in there as he spends so much time in it :D .... everything though is in it's place and a place for everything.

    Don't want to oil up the floor! Where is all your 'stuff'? Whenever I create space it is immediately filled with 'stuff'!

    :rolleyes:
    After seeing your wiring that looks like circuit diagrams why would I be surprised that all extraneous parts would be stacked out of the way in a dedicated area.
    Probably pre cleaned, serviced and cataloged as well :D

    Wow that garage is sensational - the subjects being worked on are great too but that garage -droooll!

    Also that spanner to turn over the motor is very impressive - they say size doesnt matter - but I disagree!

    So that is the same beetle you bought next morning after staying here Rob? :rolleyes:

    Glad it’s still going, after the issues not disclosed by the seller. ;)
