Thanks,
I expect the magazine would be still be en-route to the retail newstands but let me know if you find it. I will buy a few copies for myself. They are supposed to mail me a complementary copy but I haven't it gotten yet.

Edit:
I just checked my mailbox and my complementary copy DID come today.
I ordered on online to have one delivered to my son ($6.99 + $3.95 shipping - ouch).
I called Hastings here in San Angelo and they don't think they are going to get it since they don't get Wood Magazine and this special issue is from the editors of Wood.

To any of you guys that may have missed this, the magazine is supposed to be on the newsstands until April 20th.

Look what my wife did for me! She had my magazine feature framed. I know this was expensive for her to have done.

Just for interest...

Here's what I got going now:

Workroom, removing body from frame on '55 hardtop:



Main area, taken later after blasting and painting frame and installing engine:



Presently, I am still doing some work to the body in the workroom. I need to finish some more work on the quarter panels and paint the firewall before I mate the frame and body back together.

Great thread and great garage

Roger: I just scrolled through the whole thread. What a great workshop you built.
I was just wondering...what part of town are you in? I spent some time out at Goodfellow back in '77 and again in '79.
Is the strip out at Wall still in operation? it was bare-bones, but we sure had a lots of fun in the early days of bracket racing!!
Great job.

I live in the north part of town near the old coliseum.

Yea, the strip is alive and well. It's called San Angelo Dragway now.

Thanks!

Actually, I didn't want a lift. I think having a lift for a home workshop is over rated. It's just too easy to put my car up on 4 large jackstands if I need to have it in the air. Then when I'm done, I can put the jackstands away. A lift would just be in the way and I'd be tripping over it.

I'd rather be working underneath the car on my back than I would overhead also. Years ago, I worked for a business that had a gas station and I had free access to their service area after hours. So, I used their lift and really didn't see much advantage to it.
It's great for a service station or pro shop when you've got to get a car in the air super quick but not for a home shop.

If a person needs the lift for storing an extra vehicle, I can sure see that. But, I didn't need that. I've got an attached 2 car garage on the house and a 2 car carport in addition to my workshop that will hold 3 cars.

Love your garage man. I had a couple pictures of it on my I Pad before tracking them back to this forum and your awesome documentation with even more pictures. Kudos to the build, and thanks for sharing your journey. BTW, getting back to your quote, your garage is the wallpaper on my Smart Phone, I-Pad, and work computer. I hope to soon have pics of my own build to post. Though there will be a few modifications, rest assured, your garage is the inspiration. Thanks for that.

Thanks guys!

New pictures will be coming soon.
I just had a professional photographer come over and do a photo shoot with my recently completed '55 Bel Air in front of the shop.

Here's one of my '69 Corvette from a while back. It was taken by the professional photographer that was hired by the magazine. It was done right before I had put the letters over the bays up (he photoshopped the letters in for the ones that were published in the magazine).

By the way, I'm going to put this car up for sale after the holidays. It's just not getting any attention from me now that I've got my '55 done and am getting ready to start doing a restomod on my wife's '57 pickup.

For those that are interested, here's some pictures of my '55 Bel Air during the finishing up phase of the project.
Professional photos of the car in front of the shop are coming soon.
