Today my partner in the Toy, met the new owner of the complex by chance and was told not to worry about a quick move. Six months at least till the township decides what he can and cannot do with the property and probably another year of red tape after that. So we will be re upping the rental contract next spring..
Did trial fit and hang the panels on the Stude
Good to see some of the urgency is gone. Having some time to organize and plan will be a big plus.

You don't know how happy I am to read this! I can't tell you how many tools I have multiples of because I gave up looking for them between the garage, basement, and two storage sheds! Nice to know I'm not alone!

I love the Stude! It's so unique, and reminds me of the Flinstone Flyer! Glad the heat is off you for the move too!

I learned a long time ago, the best way to find a lost tool is to go buy another. I have "several" sets of wrenches, 3 impacts and 9 ratchets, along with 6 trays of sockets... I haven't counted the screw drivers, they take up 2 drawers alone...

Yep, women talk, men like visual aids...

Is that an NOS panel ??? I would think that is rare.

Pic looks like you're working in my shop. Barely room to walk around for all the "extra" stuff...

Cut it in half...

Actually, I like your idea. I am thinking about that very thing.......I may cut a Z shaped cut to preserve as much strength as possible.

Drove my ditch mower for 6 hours







This ditch has a steep V so for the second cut, I drive down the middle, right over the small trees and brush.



Nothing left after the mower mulches it...



Hillsides are always entertaining. Most of them drop off on the right and I'm leaning the other way. Those Sumac are about to get stripped.

Picked up the brake lines and fittings to install the line lock in the Falcon today. I wanted it not only for heating up the tires without going halfway down the track, but also for stops/starts on steep hills! I got the solenoid mounted and all the electrical hooked up, plus the lines bent to splice it in. Just need to con my wife into coming out and helping me bleed the brakes when I get the lines bolted up.

Yes. NOS panels, bought them many years ago. ( I have three Larks ) when they were reasonable. Actually cost more to ship than the panels cost at that time. Also have NOS front end sheet metal. Used the new front panel for the mold of the f-glass nose.

Actually the shop is 40x90 but crammed full of projects and tools. Also trying to sort out what is going to get moved and what gets swapped out. Plus I am an incurable, tool freak and stacking pack rat..
