Found some roof panels.

Hello. Look what I found. Yipeeeee. Five polycarbonate sheets found at a conservatory company. They are 9 feet long and 3 feet wide, filthy and need a good scrub. The boss asked for a charitable donation which I was happy to do. Not quite free, but at least they are recycled second hand. I brought them home in my car, with a big overhang at the back end. Again the bleeper was warning me that the luggage compartment lid was not closed. I had the front seats pushed forward and I was driving with my knees wedged under the steering wheel and my head touching the roof. Phew, I made it back without any falling out, good job it's only three miles. 
I've had lunch, so now I'm off out in the garden to clean these up. I shall be busy with this over the weekend, lets hope the rain holds off.

Have a good weekend whatever you are doing. I'll be back with a progress report.
Toodle pip.

  1. Hey there,
    How in the world did you manage to carry these long things without "mucking up" your new car? I wish I could have been a fly on the console watching this take place! LOL

  9. They are fantastic. What a find!

    I hope that you didn't have to drive far. My old car used to have a place to tie down the trunk (luggage compartment lid) with a bungee cord, but my newer car doesn't have a place to tie it so, like you, I have to drive with it open when I'm carrying something like a ladder.
