Buy cheap, buy twice, they say. So right. Let's see if angle grinder number two can finish the job. About 8 inches per disc through the stainless steel. This is one tough truck!

Thanks SteveB at that price it's not much more than a grinder. I'll give it a try.

At last, finally getting some construction done after months of ripping it apart. The new dining booth just needs a table.

I've used one of the slide-out trays from an outside compartment as a knife and fork drawer. Just been told that it looks more like a baby changing station. With a safe-working load of 250 lbs, it should be able to handle the biggest of babies.

Wardrobe building ; it looks a bit short but there is a hole cut through into the storage compartment below, so things should hang ok.
