    Nice return on a pallet, you could sell them and trendies would put them in their flash city apartment.

    No home related projects for me at the moment as I don't have a home for the time being, so concentrating on other things

    Did start another car restoration project yesterday though, will probably take me a couple of years to complete, XB GS V8 Manual Ute, have always wanted a classic Aussie V8 ute and have never owned one, may even keep the bull bar and make up a matching roll bar with some spotties for the tray , needs some love and a few $$$, but for $600 I could not pass it up, especially since it's in my favourite XB colour, Yellow Blaze.

    Gave it a clean up yesterday and this is how it sits at the moment, not a home project but as close at is gets, have bought a few kg of mig welding wire, a box of grinding and cutting disks and plenty of kill rust paint and some free scrap panels to keep me busy... so I should be sweet this will keep me out of the pub for a while.

    At the risk of offending some members who are upset by the size of my car storage shed/workshop I will throw up a photo of the ute project taken this arvo, shouldn't upset anyone as everyone here should be able to afford a $600 ute without adding it to their mortgage and going further into debt, but I guess many won't have the skill to make it a show stopper once again…lol
