Aussie sheds

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

It looks to be in immaculate condition from the limited photo. But the deck spoiler, isn't that aftermarket? Would be worth a King's Ransom if it were a RH driver!!!!

Yes a RHD model would be nice, but rarer than golden rocking horse shit as only 17 came to Australia, although quite a few made it to the UK. Mine is a Euro spec LHD as it came from the factory.

Mmmm....Phillip Island!

I rode that track for 2 perfect days last year. Hard work but such a beautiful track to ride, perfect surface and amazing corners. I could knee-surf across Southern Loop for a week and not get tired of it.

Well I've managed to complete the first three columns, painted and erected. One more is completed but in the paint bay waiting for the wife, and this morning I'm prepping number five. Scale and surface rust removal ready to weld.

They look bloody big standing up like that and took a bit of handling to erect on my own, But it's a start.
