New garage for GMC restoration


We have use of a HUGE garage for continuing our restoration work on the GMC.

Very pleased that a garage has been made available for carrying out more work on the GMC. With one of the wettest summers on record, and temperatures dropping, I’m very happy to be able to do further work in the dry. The only catch is that it’s available until the end of January, and there’s a lot to do with limited time available.

So, our garage is the site of a former car mechanics workshop next door to our warehouse. The company moved out a few months ago, and as the industrial estate is going to be redeveloped early next year, it’s available for temporary use.

Plenty of room, has an office, kitchenette and loos.

There's even some shelves available:

Next major job is the brakes, so being able to jack up the vehicle on a proper level floor is fantastic, and I can get work done no matter what the weather is like.

With the vehicle jacked up, access is suddenly so much easier. We're using a set of 3 ton stands that have a securing pin feature to prevent collapse for extra safety.
