Shop update
#11
  
Yes, it's totally unorganized.  Had to get the stuff in out of the rain.  This year is the second wettest year on record.

   

Got a little  Rolleyes help from Fescue and moved my big tools.  Also found a dozen 4' square frames on CL that I am converting into tables.  

My super neighbor works for a cabinet manufacturer and had a big sheet of melamine covered particle board he wanted to get rid of so it's going to be the table tops.  He thinks he can get some more Cool

The engine in the floor is a GMC 401 V-6 I'm hoping to put in my '49 Willys PU.

But that's a project for another day Rolleyes

Nice on the tables. We have sooooooooo many cover sheets on the units of plywood that we get that we just end up putting them in the dumpster. Some are really cool looking woodgrain Melamine. A few VC plywood sheets have been set aside, Wink
I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

Cool 

Looks like you have windows to trim out.
Floors to scrub....
Ceiling staying open?
You have a narrow roll up door there on the end wall....for?

Tables will be nice to have, you can pile them deep. Laugh

Those engines quit being manufactured after about 1966? I think.
Good powerful engines. Had a long stroke.
That's a pretty tall engine for a Willy's. Probably short enough, but you may have to put a 2' tall hood scoop on it. Laugh
Good luck getting a transmission adapter for it.

Converter to Turbo 400 is on the shelf Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

Door is 8' to give access to storage shed behind shop.

I have enough windows to add a second one to each frame for more insulation as part of framing them in (now that I have my TS, etc on site).

Looks like good lighting. LED? About 28 feet wide by how long? Nice high ceiling 10'+? Looks like it is going to be a nice size shop.
I don't understand it
I've cut it twice
And it is still too short

33 8' LED's I got from "Closed for Business" (IIRC  Rolleyes )  Yes, these old eyes need plenty of light!

32' x 48' x 12'  I can maneuver an 8' board without worrying about hitting lights. Laugh

OK, don't ever do that again. It hurt my eyes. Show us pics when it is organized and cleaned up. Eek

Having followed all the headaches you had to get to this point, I think that's pretty cool!
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Looks better than a couple of sea containers welded together ever would.  Wink

Common decency is as rare as common sense. I figure there was only a finite amount of both made and its getting shared out among too many folks.
