July 2004 - Trees removed, ground levelled and formwork in place. Shed is 15m long and 12m deep and could store 10 vehicles, before the office went in

Concrete poured

Portal frame with no internal posts

All sheeted up and ready to go

11,000 litre water tank

Moved the cars in and started to move the house stuff from storage while we rennovated.

Already accumulating other peoples junk - son-in-laws Landcruiser parts

... and friends RX7 turbo while he moved interstate

Added some pallet racking for storing engines, gearboxes and large parts

Built the office, Cougar memorabilia display area and first bench and work area

One of Brian Aust's (mmmeat) Cougar signs

2011 - Over time the work area has inherited another standing height work bench, had TV, PC and stereo installed and is waiting for the wall cupboards to go in

Inside wall of the office - just hung the display cabinets for 1:43 diecast model collection

Some of the Cougar memorabilia, plastic and tin models

Looking back toward the office door. The whole of that old wall oven cabinet is full of boxes of 1:64th Cougar diecast

Free display cases - managed to score 4 x glass cases for displays. They have frosted glass doors that need to be changed to clear glass

This is what it looks like inside. I'm using boxes of wheels to separate the cars until I can get tyre racks completed. 428 is under rhe cover, two tone is under the crap and there is one panel on the far wall that has still to be lined

Managed to score a whole bunch of 2100mm high storage cabinets. Eventually they will go on the wall near the pallet racking and kitchen cabinets will go in here to make room for more crap

This is the work area with 68 on ramps getting electric fans, electric headlight doors, new relay pack, Sanden compressor and 100 amp alternator. Eventually this will get a wall across the front and a tilt door so I can isolate the dirty work
