Dave I can help on Saturday if you need hands. I have a trailer you could borrow if you don’t have one

I have access  to about 5 trailers and a flatdeck ute so all good there, thanks for the offer

I have to pull everything thing out and go through it all, some stuff are in plastic boxes but the wife has decided to get rid of heaps of stuff BOOOYEAH!!!!, been trying to get her to do that for years

As for the carpet I will have to cut it and pull it out in sections and go from there, shouldn't  be to hard. Will take the skirting boards off and see what it is like behind them. I can replace them easy enough

Good to see most of you were on your best behaviour - must have been due to the Police presence...

Thanks for a cool night lads.

Yeah another good night. I was a bit gutted  that I was having some controller  issues in 65-80 class as the Ferrari 312PB was loving the track

For those that have offered to help me with the shed clean up I thank you all very much but I will be all good

I started on it tonight and have already got a fair bit on the trailer

Most of the stuff has been hauled out and separated and half of the carpet is already pulled out

The wall lineing has water damage to about 6 inches from the bottom

I might just cut all that off and fit new bits in, that will be a lot faster and easier than replacing it

Dave, I might have some gib plaster at the lockup if you want to save on buying some.  I can take a look Sunday as we clean and reset the AirBNB

What about paint - I probably have a few basics like Pearl Lustre, 1/8th, /14, 1/2 full Spanish white etc if you want some. Have roller, brushes trays etc. if any are of use.

Thanks Mark

But the wall lining is chip board so don't need to be super flash and I have some of that stored out at work. I have got plenty of paint and painting gear. 

Step one is completed, all flood damage stuff is now at the dump. A very full 3m tandem trailer worth, clad it was free as it was a very very heavy load.

Now I need to sort out the rest of it and store all keeping stuff in plastic boxes and put on top of the track until the concrete dries out properly 

I am thinking of putting that inter locking foam/rubber matting down round the track just incase we get flooding again.

All good Dave - if you need any temporary storage space, there is loads of room at the lockup.

 

Should be all good I think. Plus I don't  want the wife thinking she can hold on to stuff I want gone. I am taking this opportunity to get things sorted

I have managed to get another good load of stuff for the dump so will be heading there early before it gets busy.

As stink as it was to have the shed flooded and lose a lot of stuff it has been a God send for me. As you guys know I have been trying to get the wife to sort things out and get rid of a lot of it for a very long time now. It has now finally  happened

Some fast and competitive heats on Upham Downs raised everybody's games...  We won't talk about the nerfing...  maybe...  

Good to see Pedro back with his flying Jag & Roscoe has obviously been doing some mad tuning on his Group C Porsche (Jagermeister of course) 
Shame it didn;t run so hot on Blue :P

And  to top off a cool night we were also blessed with a visit from the mighty Munter.  Great to catch up....

Yeah, what's with the nerfing Snake - you weren't even there, and you're still tipping people out of their slot.

Is nerfing by proxy a thing now?

Guys, I have been deserted until after lunch, so just loitering about
if anyone wants to spend some time in my cave using the lathes sorting car issues together etc, - esp. if you need to use my NSR one for those wheel/axle sizes, test cars etc, you're welcome from about 9:30  to lunch-ish - brig food, and you can stay till the mrs kicks you out :)

Now I am officially a "nerfing b'tard" I am offering shoulder -lean lessons from 11am :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:
