That is looking good Larry.  Looks like you will have some really good lighting. :thumbs:   I don't think you can ever have to much light.

There can never be too much light in my opinion either, and the older you get the more important it is, lol.

Thanks TG, Yes I am, plan on finishing the electrical this weekend. My wife asked what I wanted for Christmas, I said "insulation" :loosing_it:  She "Hrumphed" and sais something like "won't that look lovely under the tree".

...something like "won't that look lovely under the tree".

LOL, my wife says the same thing when she asks me what I want... I send her a link to LED tail lights for the camper.

My answer to what do you want for Christmas is always car parts.

I think that the pink stuff would look good under there!

Do the hand cuffs help in the wiring? :poke:  They were barely visible in the video at about the 5 second mark. The shop looks great and I hope you have an easy time repairing the ground problem.

Handcuffs? Is that a workshop or a S&M den?

S&M? S&F, I think you meant to say. He has Sears and a Ford.

Larry, The shop looks great. We had a ground issue a couple years ago on a project and our County Inspector had us run a soaker hose coiled up around the ground rod over the weekend. A week later it still tested out OK. He said that this soil here in TX. needs the moisture to make the soil bond to the Ground rod.

Larry check all your ground connections from one end to the other going to your shop first before any major changes. A lot of connections sold today are cheap & don't make good contact. I always take a piece of emery cloth & clean connections before installing.

Thanks, I think this is the problem as the ground rod wobbles in the hole. We are supposed to get rain and "COLD" starting tomorrow through the weekend. I'll check again once the ground is wet, and afterwards.
