The effect of white paint !
13 years have slipped by since my larger shed was completed. It has been a great success.Some years ago we started using a powerful wire brush to clean things off . This wheel is mounted on a bench mounted grinder. You never actually notice how grubby everything near it was becoming, as the spray flung away from it settled so evenly and so gradually.

A fair conclusion that age-related light perception loss was the limiting factor, to enthusiasm while in there, seemed fair comment. A couple of weeks ago  I found part used tub containing Dulux white emulsion paint hiding in a corner. With shelves, surfaces and some walls clean and white again the gloom is lifted.  Clearing shelves of a decade of clutter and finding so many "lost" things again before evenings 'draw in' a bonus.
I can recommend this. :cool::lipsrsealed:

You tidy your clutter and paint your shelves, where do you put all the things you found so that you know where to find them? In a Landrover magazine the author claimed that he had thrown out all his junk and bought new when he needed things. It saved time looking for things ,buying new and then findig what he had lost.

Here's my barn find 1921 Triumph Model H. Quite an interesting ride with manual gear stick and manual oil pump as well as advance/retard and manual Klaxon horn to warn people you are coming - oh and very little in the ways of brakes!

New plugs leads etc.
Fixed up lectrics for now and a new lectrofan and been running her 5 weeks comming friday. Over the winter im turning into a coupe as the fold up roofs no longer sold.
The 109 is my oldest dearest friend. Been driving her 30 years this month. Only ever been off road 6 weeks in total. And the FFR series 2a 1963 is still waiting for me to finish the series 1.
