Not a chance of getting in the garage. Even if I got a skip & emptied the contents, I don't think it would go through the doors.

Yes, it's a top coat, Tarmac rejuvenator/renovator from B & Q (black). £13 for a 4 litre container. I used nearly 4 containers giving it all at least 2 coats.
I jet washed it all down first.

Quite pleased with the results. All the neighbours were fascinated watching me "painting" the drive, but quite a few have said they want theirs doing now.

It looked just like the pavement before I did it.

I have been spending the weekend sealing my garage's concrete floor, so hopefully the dust will reduce.

I can get the car through the door without folding in the wing mirrors, but it is incredibly tight, so I line it up halfway through and fold them in. My garage is actually usable thanks to the fact that it steps out a bit a metre or so inside, so I can open the door without too much problem (I have put carpet tiles on the wall to protect the door).

When we first moved in I managed to get my Megan CC in the garage. I had foam on the wall to stop door edge damage, & a tennis ball hanging from the ceiling which touched the screen when the bumper was @3cm from the wall :wtf:

Not a chance with my Z :crazy:

My neighbour over the road has that thing on her front garden. They were going on a mobile roadblock trip somewhere when the photo was taken.

I have just found out that her next door is also about to get a mobile roadblock device. Yay :wtf:

So that will be just 4 of them in my cul de sac. I could feel left out or I could just buy petrol, a few bottles, rags & matches :twisted:

Yes there is a clause which does say you can't keep caravans, it also mentions works vans.

There are probably about 50 caravans and double that number of works vans on the entire estate. I don't think I would have a prayer of getting something done about them.

I think it's just a case of grin and bear it. Well, not much grinning actually. Still thinking more about Mr Molotov actually :eusa-shhh:

If I had the option, I would have mine garaged, well, actually, if I really had the option, I'd have mine parked in Australia too :eusa-whistle:

Don't underestimate the impact of weather on caravans. Sunlight and big temperature changes wear out the plastic outside. I manage a garage for caravans mostly (so people don't have to put it in the street...) which is dark and ventilated and caravans kept this way hardly wear down whereas those left outside all the time turn green or the plastic gets dull or hard and brittle.

I wonder if I could pursuade anyone up my street to use your facility :eusa-think:

Might be a bit far to travel perhaps :eusa-whistle:

If I had a caravan I would want to hide it away in a dark place too... :eusa-whistle:
