I'm from Bracken Ridge in Brisbane's northern suburbs.
I've got a few DIY projects to be attacked. Money being relatively tight means DIY is the only way I'll get all the things done that I want to., for the money available. But that's all good, I'm sure I'll learn things along the way.
I'll post my specific questions elsewhere - hopefully in the right place but please forgive me if I don't manage to do that from the start
Up til now I've been posting occasional questions in more generalist forums, but this is the best way of more likely reaching people who know things, rather than simply guess them I hope.
More about me - I drive a Land Rover Defender 130 (1995) and ride a GSX1400 motorcycle (commuter and weekend fun). Also have various other hobbies that have taken up too much time and money.... so now the focus on some DIY home fixes.
