    I have been out this morning to Bunnings for the bits I need to make my portable Blast cabinet.. and I checked out my eBay 6" grinder and it has 1/2W threads so I bought a Left and Right 1/2" Whitworth spindles... so it should be a day of sorting some tools today.. before it goes past 37 in the afternoon..
    And while going to Bunnings my low tyre pressure warning came on.. It appears I have a nice big screw in my tyre on the Jeep... so I will be changing that today as well seeing as I am off to Dubbo before the sun comes up in the morning.. Grrrr

    I'm too lazy to find the thread about plastics restoration, so I will post it here. I keep getting told about heat gun for powdery, oxidised plastic, so I tried it on the tank of an old KDX, but I don't have a heat gun. So I used a propane torch - I had seen it used for machined Perspex. The plastic must be clean and don't overdo it, better if you remove some of the powdered plastic if it's really bad.

    Well I made the trolley for the blast cabinet.. so next weekend it is time to finish hooking up the second tank and sorting the vacuum arrangement on it so it is relatively dust free.. and I had a little play on the polisher.. I couldnt really do much as it needs to be bolted down and I want that to be outside so all the crap it gives off is no tin the garage...

    So today was the end of an era. I sold my kia van. I bought it in 2016 and it was very cheap and cheerful , the body work had more hits than Elvis. The rego was due next week so up it went on gumtree last night as unregistered project . I received a call this morning from a buyer , we talked about it and he agreed to take it if I could drop it off . Phil offered to follow me up and bring me home, I had a lightbulb moment , I was like I have a van. I will just load my bike in the back and ride it home

    So 70 mins drove to his place , then a 50 min ride home on the zxr

    Thanks Kia , I estimate I picked up over 250 bikes in our time together. One last pic for old times sake , I stopped on the way home for a kebab and the zxr pic was pretty cool.

    I should pick up my newish Toyota van next week

    That's something I'd forget and wonder where the loose bolts came from, then have to put things apart to do it again.. and then twice more for whatever else I forgot...

    My newish / 2nd band van arrived last night , turns out is a super long wheel base hiace which is a huge bonus . We are taking guesses as to how many bodies / bikes we can fit in there

    Also looking at some ideas to jazz it up a bit

    Yeah, I'm NOT volunteering to help sand the finish for a chrome mirror-finish. You're on your own there.

    As for how many bikes you can fit, anything less than 6 and you can take the van back! ;-P
    A mate got a Sprinter, ex-police command centre, you can stand upright and probably fit 4 bikes across and 3 long! You could nearly put a mezzanine floor in!
