Another weekend gone already!

So the project has taken an unexpected turn... kinda

First things first, trip down to Portsmouth to collect a ramp for the new unit





poor quality photo,

on the Saturday...

I've somehow managed to acquired another m3 rolling shell... Just what I needed...











She's a lovely clean example, as you can see above dry stored for all its life...

Yeah proper horrible, spiders, leaves, goodness knows what else...



Getting her on the trailer was a bit of a nightmare as it was torrential rain, thunder and lightening when loading and that paired with the car not actually very rolling was a bit of a challenge... it involved winching it up while I picked up the rear quarter and carried her on, a winch I finally finished installing that evening (luckily)





Just a simple Anderson plug to connect the winch, works perfectly!

anyway back to it...

Sketchy Sunday


managed to scavenge a hub from the M3 in the unit, to fit to the one on the trailer...



getting her ont tools

Its one of those moments when you thought you'd save time by taking shortcuts, but in the end I definitely should of removed the m3 off the trailer to do it....

ended up being a massive faff, especially as the wheels are tight against the trailer edge...



had to move the car right back to the edge to get passed the spare wheel, couldn't remove as didn't have a deep 19mm (all tools at unit)




anyway, wheels on!

Nothing more exciting happened really, ended up packing up remaining parts from the old unit ready for the move



New battery ratchet delivered, been wanting one for ages as they make a job so much faster!



Winner winner, anyway, getting the keys Thursday - I'm looking forward to the unit project starting

I'm still keen to do a vlog/videos about this unit/car projects - I need a name for the channel/collection of videos (ref SelectMotorsport) as I want to start pushing that forward.

You're a sucker for punishment! What's the unit costing you roughly, just as a matter of interest?

1000 A month for that size is fantastic if you can get a few people to share/offset it

thanks mate!

Yep got 4 of us In there, I ideally want to rent out some space outdoors also, but that can come later when we've settled in...

I know I know, I cant see me keeping it in all honesty, but I would like to build either an m3 cup spec car/or a clubsport car, as I think m3's are such a good all rounder, and racecars/track cars do not make good roadcars.

Something to work harder for!

The girl did good, not one complaint throughout the days!

Thanks again!

I thought you were planning on polishing the concrete?
I just painted my double garage and that was hard enough work, that looks like a monumental effort! Nicely done
