Good progress BC.
You can keep all that snow down your end, nice and clear here ;D

Look at it! God, your project is ... it's everywhere. Your garage looks like you've been committing war crimes against a robot.

Fortunately it didn't settle here - however more snow threatened for next week ...........

Next job is to get the electrics installed in the garage and then it's a final strip down of all the projects to get Powder Coating done.

BTWc - I changed the header to this thread as I have decided against Yellow on this one. ::)

D'you know Notlob I thought I'd made that name up all on my own ............. then when Mrs.B was rummaging around in the loft [ 25 year sort out ] she called me up to check out a pile [ like 200+ ] of old Vinyl LP albums - and what was the first one  ....................... "Tangerine Dream" !!!

BTW my young whippersnapper friends - Vinyl LP Albums - that is ye olde plastic long play records !

And you're quite right - the album sleeves are VERY psychedelic ................... tank mural ??????????????

Here's the inspiration for the name, if not the colour !

So, we DID get the snow - around 10" fell and settled here. My garage was inaccessible again due to the snow drifting up to 3' against the door. That was hardly relevant as the bloody temp was - 4 anyway !

Snow nearly all gone again now - maybe THIS weekend !

In between times [ !!! ].

Snow cleared
I fucked off to Saxony for a chill break [ 25 + degrees for 2 weeks ! ]
Back now - albeit with a serious dose of Man Flu - and raring to go [ 'ish ]

All the final odds for putting power in the garage arrived while I was away and just for a final kick up the ass - I came across this little gem, courtesy of Diggerdahn over on the KZ Forum [www.armbell.com. ]

Built by 2 sculptor Brothers just outside Madrid [ Spain ] .................

I just LOVE the diversity of design direction.

Every one you see has a little inspirational idea here and there ....... always leraning.
