Believe I mentioned that we are building a new garage and shop. Here are a few pics. It is totally walled in, trusses delivered today. It will have 12 foot walls in the garage and 9 ft. in the shop. I will be installing a two post lift. Going well. Larry

Jeff, Carol will be working on my car with me. Then on the next vehicle I am after. I still haven't found a 48-50 ford f1 yet. I will find one, but they are hard to locate for a decent price in any kind of shape. Larry

Hello, Larry.

Put bright lights in there! My two-car (more like one and a half) car garage has an overhead fixture with two fluorescent bulbs and there is never enough light to see anything.

I have to use a shop light and it seems that it is ALWAYS angled so that it shines straight into my eyes.

Larry, I wonder if Carol would give my wife (Vel) some lessons !?!

The garage and shop areas will both have skylights and I will add a whole lot of lights on both sides. When I painted my car in my existing garage I added a bunch of light fixtures on the ceiling and sides. I still use them and agree the more the merrier.

Gene, Carol just likes to help. She doesn't really like to get dirty, but she will always lend a hand. If GOD made a more perfect woman I haven't met her yet. After 49 years of marriage to Carol, I can say, I have been blessed beyond words. Larry

I also have 49 years invested in this, my first wife. But she doesn't want to help with the Falcon. But other than that..... I don't complain. I'm just jealous!
