Went in the garage just now, and the top shelf down the left side has collapsed......The plugs have come out of the wall, leaving the shelf hanging from the two bottom bracket screws. Obviously I didn't use big enough screws...……

The gap between the side of my Roadster and the wall is little more than twelve inches, and everything off that shelf has dropped into the twelve inches.

There was some heavy stuff...….and sharp edged...….but the Morgan is untouched.

We do have a spook in the garage but I don't think it was her (long story).

That's amazingly lucky (if you look on the bright side).

I'd buy a lottery ticket if I was you.

Glad there's no damage.

You were obviously storing too much neoprene on the shelf!
