Can i borrow a garage to do some work?

16-01-09, 19:08
Is anyone in the bournemouth area willing to let me borrow their garage and a few basic tools such as, axel stands and 2 tonne jack?

I am happy to give back! T: :grphg

I have a few things i would like to do on my van, such as an oil and filters service, but lack the sheltered and flat (level) floored facilities.

I have most tools for jobs and have so far learnt how to replace all the glow plugs and self service the van myself, as well as install a double rear seat legally, carpet the rear and install electric windows (all from the info i have picked up on this forum).

In return for use of someones facilities i would be happy to offer my hands at anything you need doing. i can service a 1.9TD engine, sure i could have a crack at any other engine or i can do some other job on the van if wanted (im no qualified mechanic though!!). I can have a go at fixing things around the house or work out whats broken. Can labour in the garden if needed. As you can see i'm generally any odd job boy.

Has anyone got somewhere i can use? pretty please :cheers
