where is your switch fitted? you may have to move it to get it to come on at right time ie NG on cooler part of system leaving temp to go right up

Why did you not use the garden fence as your other " wall" ?  Ridge in the middle & rain runs off each end.

Functionally, i'd still need access to the rear of the house, so i'd need to leave an unused corridor inside the shed and end up with the same usable space as the above shed. Also I'd have to lock and unlock both ends each time i go through. Build-wise, I'd have to build up to the boundary, either leaving a small gap to the fence (damp/rot issues?) or remove the fence (hassle) and use much more material for the roof/ends.

Not with that attitude! The main upside is i'll get rid of all the crap out of the garage so i can have space to work on the kit again.

Having sorted out the exhaust finishers, I thought I'd have a go at my bonnet scoop. 

I've never been that happy with the black edge trim I used around the holes so I removed it and stripped off the vinyl wrap which got scuffed when I removed the bonnet at the MOT and the wind blew it over.

Then I gave the fibreglass a quick sand over and filled a few small areas.

Finally I re-wrapped it with gloss black vinyl and I made a new finisher for the holes from 1mm aluminium and attached it with stainless button head screws.

That aluminum trim looks Awesome. I need to make some very similar myself to go around the rear roll bar as it enters the new boot cover. Did you cut with jigsaw and finish by hand?

It's a bit small and flimsy to cut with a jigsaw and it's hard not to scuff the surface even with the protective film on it so I cut it with a hacksaw and finished it off by filing.

I wondered how long it would take for someone to notice that.
