We were having a measure up today to see what we could get and what we would need to do to change the door.
I think, as its an old precast i can remove the old up and over door, then remove the door guides which are bolted on. Then use the original bolt holes to to atttach two lengths of 2 by 4 and then attach said doors to them.
I'm also planning to lay an extension to the concrete base and extend rear using timber and corragted roofing. This way i know for sure i can eventually get a 4.7 to fit.
It wouldnt have been an issue if it would have gone on the drive and i'd have left both cars on the road whilst i did the works, but it wont even fit there without overhanging the pavement. Also given the amount of "scrap dealers" travelling the streets now id have concerns it may go missing.
Out of sadness today i decided to clean the 420 and treat her to an oil change.
