    Would y'all settle for a description right now? No batteries in the camera atm :)

    At present, the garage includes the following car and tool related items:

    My compressor.
    My air tools - including socket gun, sprayer, various random lines and connections.
    Tool box - including metric and imperial sockets, metric and imperial spanners.
    Boxes of hose clips.
    Boxes of nuts and bolts, metric and imperial.
    Axle stands, 3000kg capacity.
    Jack, 2500kg capacity.
    1953 MG TD, folks across the road own it, we're storing it for them. Dad and I want to buy it, Dad wants to restore it and I want to hot rod it to upset the MG purists.
    The bits of my Oldsmobile that I've taken off that it doesn't really need.
    The bits of my Oldsmobile that I've taken off that it does really need.
    Spare brake shoes for the Seicento's rear brakes.

    I wish ours was like yours, need somewhere to work with a decent stock of tools, makes things so much easier.

    I would have taken a pic of a mates van when I 'helped' do a gearbox change the other day, like a mobile workshop full of snap-on tools. Place for everything, was so cool :cool:

    I have 2 sheds though, does that still make me a man? :o

    You need three sheds to be a real man, two puts you on dodgy ground ;)

    That dog is so smart, he might be after your nuts though, so watch out!
