Changed the auto box on my range rover, new one has an issue with governor sticking so unless the addative they sent fixes it half of it's got to come apart again... fixed loads of odd loose / poor fitting trim issues.

Decorated bathroom
started re-roofing car port and fixing all the rot I have found.

On Minor sealed rear window, fitted centre stop light and my son has been developing a 3D printed cup holder / USB console and stowage for the boot, also dug out a steel bootlid to restore.

I am still working from home so most of the jobs have been an hour here or there.

Painted the garage floor so that wen the Traveller gets incontinent now I can tut about it being on the fresh paint rather than bare concrete... also got the gearbox replacement sorted and working in time to not be able to go anywhere :D

I have been busy in the greenhouse looking after a certain coloured bush. It is starting to sprout again and I have been giving it some tender loving care.

Well, I've been getting fit enough for a cycliing event (despite it being cancelled...) and being dragged out walking every day with my wife, which has eaten into the time I thought I was going to have in my garage. Today, though, I've developed a stress fracture in my foot and can't exercise for several weeks - so there's a danger I'll finish my Traveller after nearly nine years! :)

Wise move but as it’s your specialist subject, why not try Mastermind ?

My LHD conversion some 4 to 5 years ago left the glove box area unconverted as finding suitable frames proved impossible. Have always had it in mind to make a handed frame but never got around to it until now. Using the RH as a reverse template, I made the frame from hard balsa wood, sealed it with dope and talcom powder and then painted. fix it to the facia using double sided tape, at least for the time being.

It looks much better in the flesh than the picture.
