    Thanks Mike_D

  • I’ve got 2 of those Latham doors. Only the single ones.

    One is outside for access to the room above the garage and one is inside the garage leading to my bike store.

    I have the mid/higher level type. Having fitted them and haBing a good look at them, I’d say it would be easier to knock the garage down than get through them (which people do). Eve…[Read more]

  • My first car was a Chevette in YELLOW, GLS no less 🤣

    A year or so later myself and my mates started buying hothatches (back when 18 year olds could insure them).

    One of of them got a MK2 escort RS2000 and another bought a Chevette HS. If I’m being honest they where both not great cars to drive or own (especially the HS as I recall) compared t…[Read more]
