Howdy from a breezy Scotland!
Just a little too big have thought about lowering the bus and letting some air out of the tyres but think i might keep her stock height
Hi, im in north wales, only about 30 miles away
Hi and where abouts is Saltaire?
Don't ask mate, it's a rough area!!
Welcome along by the way.
You could always dig out some channels in the garage for the wheels.
Great ,but is it sunny
Looks like a “lifting the garage roof” summer project then?!
No sun today, blowing at force 10 with rain no driving the van in this wind could be on two wheels!
Yeah been thinking about how to do that
Don't let Lady Lisa see that! It was said of Saltaire and its creator Sir Titus Salt:
"Salt's motives in building Saltaire remain obscure. They seem to have been a mixture of sound economics, Christian duty, and a desire to have effective control over his workforce. There were economic reasons for moving out of Bradford, and the village did provide him with an amenable, handpicked workforce. Yet Salt was deeply religious and sincerely believed that, by creating an environment where people could lead healthy, virtuous, godly lives, he was doing God's work. Perhaps, also, diffident and inarticulate as he was, the village may have been a way of demonstrating the extent of his wealth and power. Lastly, he may also have seen it as a means of establishing an industrial dynasty to match the landed estates of his Bradford contemporaries. However, Saltaire provided no real solution to the relationship between employer and worker. Its small size, healthy site, and comparative isolation provided an escape rather than an answer to the problems of urban industrial society."
Raising the roof to get the bus in! What about the door in? is that ok for height? This was the problem we had with a 'tin top', could drive it into the garage no problem but the angle of the 'up and over' door coming down caught the roof line, thought about a roll up door but settled for a good breathable outdoor cover and my other classic now lives in the garage.
Some of the residents are apparently!
