Well done Kev, an amazing transformation. I'm sure many machines have been scrapped in far better condition than this one was!

Sorry begging again!!!! :(

So, could now do with a temporary wide bodied cab, any condition, until I get the one I am waiting for (was going to be at 8bitflip but it isn't ready yet). I just want another cab to put the finished playfield in with the glass to protect it whilst it goes into storage while I move house. Anything anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers in advance

kev

PS I have stuck this in the wanted ads as well

Hi Kev,

Have you got any further with this? Or is it still in storage?

Dunc
Hi Dunc,

No still sat in storage (as are all of my pins) at the moment since the house move. I have to build a large workshop and pin room(30sq M), before I can continue, but I think as autumn is approaching, and this will essentially be an outdoor shed, it may be spring before I get a start on this :-(

Cheers

Just a quick update peeps - Almost ready to begin work on building 1 of my 2 pinshacks. 1 is going to be a workshop and the other a games room. Was going to be one large shed but the council poo poo'd that. I have to build 2 sheds less then 15sqm each, then I have can have them as close to the fences and to each other as I want !!!! Crazy rules.

I can't build one 30sqm shed, as it is considered a fire risk, but if I build 2, as long as there is a 30mm gap between the two sheds then it's fine - LUDICROUS!!!!!

Anyway I am really missing the resto work and playing my pins so cant wait to get cracked on with this. I will start a new log for the sheds if anyone is interested.

Watch this space!!

Cheers

Kev

With a 30mm gap, I'm sure you can come up with some ingenious way of linking the the two sheds via double doors, say? Close em, 2 sheds. Open em, 1 shed. ;)

And yes, shed logs (shed porn) are all the rage these days. Do it! :D
