Not quite a proper man cave yet but I'll get there eventually, the big Maser sign came from a dealer in Hinkley....

The plan is to get the garage boarded out completely and wire it up to the house.

Not as 5* as some of the other man caves, mine is more of a 'gearbox graveyard' style. Organised and nice and oily. May need to extend in the future to satisfy the disease of 40+ years of mini gearboxes and parts. The 'oily' feature helps as the wife refuses to step foot in the garage.

These were made by a guy in Aus a few (possibly 10) years ago.

Good tanks.

The guy out here was Paul Gulson, he made them for a few years and then sold the equipment to make them. Apparently he made over 700 of them

There’s been no sight of new tanks since pre 2016 after he sold the equipment.

He also used to make Cooper S style air filter boxes from the same HPDE

I have always been tempted by a phone box, but if I got one, I'd want it planted outside & am reluctant the advertise the location of the Batcave.

Now that is a first world problem :)
