Ooh that sucks.

Tip to make sure your car is fully in the garage - park it properly, hang a tennis ball on a piece of string so it just touches the windscreen. Now, whenever you park it just drive forward until the tennis ball just touches the screen and you know you are in the right place.

Sorry if that tip is a bit late. Also useful to stop you driving too far forward into the garage where there is clutter in front that is out of sight lines.

Just out of interest are you allowed to say how much you paid for the paintjob?

It would be great if, once finished you did a 360 walk around video and posted on YouTube. I'm considering building one similar to yours. If I was closer to Dorset I would have bought one by now.
