Last one I looked a few weeks ago that only involved travelling 30 minutes to it work out with electric, insurance, fire extinguishers, rent, waste bins etc, and this was a poxy farm I would have to charge 45 to 55 hr just to give me a decent hourly rate that wasn't minimum wage, that was without setting anything up. Lucky I don't have to buy anything really, Lift and spray booth, or build one ( I have the extraction still )
Problem is with resto work on my own I would need 2-3 long to mid term restos on going and a few in and out jobs all at once, which means the space reqd is expensive

Having looked online at a lot of different cars the TT seems to be in front, only thing is that although the MK1 seems to be regarded as a classic now would it be welcome on here ?

It would be a running project car
