Hehe, a thread I can win :lol:

Assuming the competition is how much stuff you can cram into a shed. 6m x 8.4m (8.4m, incidentally, is 2 x Datsun 1600's long), contains the aforementioned 2x1600's, my 180B SSS coupe on the rotisseries, plus near 30 years of accumulated spares.

%The pics are in chronological order, nice and clean was not long after I built the shed, later ones are as it started to fill up....I might get some more up-to-date pics over the weekend, I 've managed to put a whole lot more stuff in the shed after selling my parent's place last year :shock:

What could I not do without ?

Oxy welding set, complete with Henrob torch. Great for rust repairs / panelbeating.

My compressor and spraypainting gear.

Small lathe and mill.

Mosquito coils. You wouldn't believe the number of mossies at my place.

What do I need ?

More tool storage space so I don't spend half my shed time looking for stuff.

More organisation / neatness.....

Entertainment :

CD player with speakers rescued from a kerbside cleanup.

Heating / Cooling :

I have a fan, a window and a roller door.

Other features ?

It now has a "Spraybooth" made from old advertising sign that are printed on tarp-like material, that can be rolled up when not in use.

Took this photo not long after we moved into the new place in January

It's pretty decent, will hold four VE Commodores comfortably. Future plans are for a hoist, big workbench and room for more tools to help with simple panel beating (when I learn how to do it) and to shape a surfboard or two one day

I was kinda hoping for a place where we could show an individual 'build thread' of our sheds rather than just a topic.

Its off topic but for all the reasons you mentioned in your first post it might create some interest?

Old shed from the house I had to move out of.
Couldn't get into it for the last 6 or more years due to the Mrs OCD collecting of stuffed toys. Got sick of them being in the house, so bagged them all up and stuffed them in the shed, and that was the end of working on cars for me for. It didn't stop her collecting more though :(
Had a pit and 2 power points and room for 2 cars, but thats all it had going for it.
The photo is from when I started cleaning all the junk out and was finally able to see the 2 cars that were buried in there for the first time in years.

I guess the stuffed toys are good for moisture absorption and stopping rust on those beauties? :rofl:

Is it possible to have posts cut from my car thread moved into a new thread in the shed section?

Thanks Nik! Can you also move the shed-related posts on page 18 and 19, too? They are earlier posts than the ones you've already moved, so if they can go in front of them, that would be ace!
