Possible quarantine a good chance for small DIY improvements?

Post by Craig Lord »

With all the talk of lock-downs and mandatory quarantine in the near future I thought that it might be nice to create a topic where people can share thier different and simple (or not) DIY ideas that they have done on thier patrols so that others can maybe get some inspiration and have something to do if we all get stuck at home in the coming weeks.

It can be really simple 10 - 20 minute ideas and tips to full on projects but one should be able to carry then out at home with no need for serious specialist tools. Can maybe even be tips and tricks that can be used around the campsite but that may need to be placed into a different section. I'm going to be mounting my portable solar panels on my roof rack soon so I'll be sharing that. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Looking forward to seeing what everyone has done! Stay safe :salute:
When in doubt throttle out !

They may end up resulting in a new meaning to the term "Death by lockdown"
