We just got the keys for our new place, which will take a megarestore to bring it up to 21st century spec.
A similar situation to yours, it seems: one outbuilding that will become dedicated workshop space, ample parts storage, plus dry storage for the car collection (and then some... ;) )

Good luck with the renovation work and all the best for the New Year!

To be honest, what you see is only half the workshop. And than I have three garageboxes...I feel lucky, but than again I spent years wrenching outside in parking lots and among cattle so I kinda felt I deserved it.... :oops: :D

Congratulations on your new workshop. Makes all the difference to your cars long term survival.

pfffffieuw. Blowing off a lot of dust.

So, I quit working on the jag over 4 years ago. In the meantime, we bougt our first house, which was a ruin and needed 3 years of working on it, next to our jobs. Also, we had two kids. And I started my own company. Oh, and I also bought a camper, which had been sitting for 30 years in a barn, but we just went on holiday with it the last 2 weeks :-)

A 1978 volkswagen LT

with al that sorted, I dug up the jaguar today! Our house came with a huge workshop, and what better way to fill that than with a lift. so the jaguar had to go move. But would it start?

Of course!

And now its on a place where I can start working on it.

What do I need to do? the last thing I did was weld everything that was rusted, so I need to make all these welds smooth and straighten everything. Than paint, put the windows and interior back in and I can drive again. Should take no more than a couple of weeks right? :-)

Great progress there, and a great place to work on cars.
I hope the rest of the car goes back together easily.
