That looks a bit wierd compared to our left(read correct) side drive :lol:


It’s no coincidence that right hand drive contains the word right instead of wrong :eusa-whistle: ;)


No, what matters is that we drive on the right side of the road.

It is tight! The rear wheel on the passenger side is about 1 cm from a bit sticking out of the wall. But, as long as it fits, I'm happy :)

Yeah damn kids, leaving footballs all over the place! :lol:

I'm just glad you've moved the football !!

Wish I could get mine in't garage unfortunately it's sat outside 365, and I'm fed up of the bird poop and rusty brakes.

Whilst I was collecting Zero on trailer from Nottinghamshire, wife (not her fault) got a builder to knock up a shelter; with the car measurements I left.
Good job there are no doors on the car! :roll:
And the clearance on each side to the steel supports is a couple of centimetres. :clap:
Shoehorn job and slowly. :beer:

I said to my wife that when we moved, it would need to have a garage and that we could use it for its intended purpose.
This weekend, I glued up some of those foam tiles ( http://www.diy.com/departments/auto-pro-interlocking-eva-foam-black-floor-mats-pack-of-6/1270021_BQ.prd ) to save the door when getting out. Im also working in tinning my waistline to make it easier :lol:

Looks like our carport size, I have to get out before we park in there as it's too cramped for use to park so both people can get out.

I thought at one point (no not that seriously!) of cutting a hatch in the roof of the shelter and with block and tackle, lowering myself down into the driver's seat. :x
I have to drive in centrally to miss the steel uprights both sides, so I have just enough clearance between inside of shelter walls to squeeze past the rear wings; and it is a squeeze - good job I'm a slim chap! :thumbup:

You could install a perfectly positioned side door? lol If I moved mine back a little bit more, Id have more room as I could open the side door lol.
