New garage door handle/lock came on Friday, fitted yesterday, had a few big bunches of keys left behind when we moved in but no garage door key to be found.
I did get a handle from Screwfix last weekend but the spindle on these is rotated 45 degrees and took me a while to figure it out before realising I'd bought the wrong handle ffs lol.
Went to builders merchants yesterday and gave them a bit of doorframe to match what I'd removed and the sizes, car loaded way I went. Started the 1st frame and soon as I done the 1st mitres I noticed the trims where not the same, arseholes in the merchants gave me the wrong trim so now I will have to do the head trims and another 3 door frames the same.
Raging a bit as the current frames and trims are excellent job but glued and nailed to death so when I'm taking them off gently they are just breaking so they will all be getting manhandled to fuck off later.

The truck racing set is bigger than I thought lol. And how fucking cool are those Rigs :)
Need to find a track diagram as there are a few half and quarter sections of track that need to go a certain way. Also need to file the blades down as over time the front suspension has went and they catch on the bottom of the track rail, set it up last night and had a wheelspin competition lmfao.
Track itself is in great condition, had to replace the powerboard track section tho from a working set I "had lying around" lol.
Not to sure what I'm doing with them when the new set comes, it's going on a fold down board on the garage wall :)

Eventually this will be fixed to a board that drops down of the wall on hinges and folds up away into a frame
