  1. Yeah, Easter sounds fine. It does have a gap in the middle. I can’t measure it at the moment as @64valiant is using it, but I brought the Midget up from Wellington on it, and it didn’t fall off.
  2. Lucky that the only visible number plate is probably the only legit one of them all. That is a weird article.
  3. Probably <10psi at that stage. Slow(ish) leak meant I had to pump up my tyre every day, and it was at 4psi in the morning.
  4. Do any of you guys want me to bring your OS sticker sheets to East Cape, instead of posting them?
  5. Last year's sticker design was awesome, so I reckon you should do this year's one too. I can print them if you want, or you can use whoever else you like.
  6. Extremely. Nah, should be pretty easy to do if we can get a nice front-on shot of the originals, and the dimensions.
  7. My garage is only about 1/3 full. Unfortunately the entire floor area is taken, but if you can figure out a cheap and easy way of utilising the other 2/3 of empty volume, you’re welcome to it.

    That would be the cheapest and simplest solution, but I want to get the shed back to it’s original intended use. Plus, it’s full as fuck.

    PAINT THREAD

    Yeah, that's the main downside I see at the moment, too. All the items I'm painting at the moment are small (<1m2), but I would like to use the area for painting motorbike and go-kart frames, etc in the future. I also want to make it so friends can use the space to paint whatever little projects they have as well. I think maybe the only thing that the shipping container would be too narrow for would be cars, and I can't see myself painting those anyway.

    PAINT THREAD

    I'm still very much a noob when it comes to painting, but it looks like it's going to be an important part of my business for a while yet - as well as my own hobbies. I've currently got a far from ideal setup in the garage, which gives me no control over dust and debris, temperature, and overspray. Plus it looks like shit having half finished products lying around everywhere while they dry. I'm daydreaming about getting another shipping container, and setting it up specifically as an external paint booth with power and extraction abilities. This will give me storage for all my paint related stuff, as well as control over temperature and air filtering, and a decent amount of room to move around in. Does this sound like a good idea, or is there a better way of doing it?
