   I do allot for the locale soccer complex during the summer, mostly to keep my daughter busy and involved with the community.  Over the summer I asked about this truck body that was setting in the woods near the field's, they said it used to be there equipment room and they did not use it anymore.  fast foreward to last weekend when we went to the fall cleanup at the complex, I went with Izabelle and while I was there I got approached  my the members of the board about the truck body, they said if I took it out with everything that is in there I could have it!!!!  sure why not !!!

   I had the afternoon of today so I went over and cleaned it out, found lots off mice and useless junk, but there a was a huge pile of nice pine lumber in there, looks like old bleacher lumber.  Going to sell the lumber and give the cash to the complex and the body will be for storage here at the house. Win Win!!!!  8' wide by 22' long, my poor little s-10 had its hands full getting it home on the car trailer, good thing I only had to go about 1 mile.

Cool Pete! You can never have enough room. We use shipping containers at work to store spare parts and they work great.

Make a good tractor shop and easy to heat. I've about have my building finished for tractor rebuilding this winter. 12 X 20 and heavy insulated so I can keep it warm easy this winter. All I have left to do is a couple of shelves to build and peg board on one wall and put the tools in it. I'll have it finished next week and then its to the 1957 Copar Panzer T 205.

Great score. Build some shelving in there, load it with all your tractor parts, and

you'll be so happy.


I had one given to me earlier in the summer. It's aluminum, 16ft long. There where openings in the

corners, where the roll down door meets the floor. Spray foamed them, and now it's mouse proof.

I'm still working on putting in more shelving, but it's so nice to have all the treasures in one spot.
