I don't think the owner would appreciate the 'attachments' on his car. Plus, I only get about 12X20 for my use. But, as long as I move things out of the way, I can use whatever is open. In the pics, just over the tralier (rear view), you can see the top of the tombstone welder near the two shelves. This will be a fabricating area. just to the right of the trailer along the wall is the hood for my GTV/16.

It's funny how you never need a lot of room for yourself in someone else's shop. Using someone else's tools has its benefits when you are only alotted a small corner.

The main benefit I'm getting is I can work inside. Don't have to worry about strong wind/rain. Plus I can help on some of the mechanical jobs if I want. Most of the tools I will be using are mine. Gives me the option to do different things. I hope to get the GTV down there soon. Plus some seat time with the Ford and box blade. May do some of that today. Need to get my laser level out and check fall on the drainage. There is quite a bit, just not sure how much and how I want it to look when done. I'll see if some pics can be posted on that.

Kenny sounds like you have a really good deal. Glad to hear you are busy and enjoying your self. It is also nice to have others there to talk to and help with ideas and/or projects. My brother-in-law has a Ford Mustang, Fairlane & Falcon parts & Restoration business but he is on the other side of town. :(

I think Kenny is putting a 3 point hitch and a mower deck on that 56. (just don't forget hydraulics) :p




That would be different,sort of like "Monster Garage" did with that Mustang GT. :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth:

I won't be doing much on the '56. Body work is not my thing.

Filled up the e-tank this morning and put the seat slides from the go-kart in it. Was cooking good before I came back to the house. That ought to free them up some

Chris, it works good. I went to Wally World and got a large storage container, Made a 2X4 frame around the top (when filled with water, it bulges big time). Filled with water and the good stuff. Does an awesome job. Just read the threads on this.
