Well after getting snow and ice yesterday I was ready to curse the weather guy.I'll get over it.Anyway this gave me the opportunity to do spring clean up and put all the parts,and everything else up on shelves and brackets.Went all the way around the garage with it.Looks good and it gets everything off the benches and and clean,for working.I would never have  known I had all this room till I cleaned it up and moved everything up on the walls. I didn't tell my wife what I did..She'll want to put her car in there.She must be crazy!Putting all the tools back in the box,so I can start over and go back to working the frame.At least I'll know where everything is for a while now.By doing all this I think I gained valuable space both on the benches and floor space.You would think that after being in the trade for so many years,I should have known better.Guess I'm getting lazy in my old age,or maybe an old dog and a new trick.Here are some pictures of the additional room I gained.
I promise to start back on the frame and talk that next time.I got the majority of the components I need to continue on with the frame building process[Been nickel & diming it for a long time & selling a few things on E-Bay now and then helps also].
Thanks for looking,

Well folks,I think that possibly that that old groundhog from Pa.was right and maybe we will have an early Spring.Man do I hope so.Don't know how much longer these bones can take this cold.I'm sure other people have it worst,so no more "Whinnin".
Seems the only thing that is happing in the garage is winter's trash
is accumalating all over the place,leaves,spilled salt for the driver way ice,snow shovels and whatever else that I was to lazy to put back where it belongs.I plan to do a cleanup and put the unrelated things that were not used to work on the "WOP" away.
I more or less stopped on the mock up of the rear housing and suspension.Everything is more or less in line.will recheck and see if it hasn't moved in the last few months or so.Then we'll start tacking it up and see whar goes.Hope to have this going in the next week or so,if the weather holds.[Fingers Crossed].
And I'll be posting some photos of progress or going backwords.
Any comments good or bad are welcome.Don't worry I can take critisism and you won't hurt my feelings.The few that I have anywhow.I'll even post it as long as it's not dirty.Trying to keep this half assed respectable folks!
Gettin that itch to get under the welding helmet to hide my "MUG" and chase those tig 'Puddles' around.
Thanks for lookin'
