As long as you spent five minutes you're good. I wish I could say I did.

Looks about right. A well-seasoned Cast Iron pan is such a treat!

Why... That ornery low down snake in the grass streaker you call a buddy must have built the new door there while they was dronk.











Thank goodness for the ability to sweat I am taking the opportunity to use that sparingly! My mind is drawing an automotive blank. Ah.
Ha! Yeah, that "door" was made a few years ago when dad lost control of a car he was pushing towards the garage. No damage to the car, but kinda tore up that panel on his shop. That's one of the things I've gotta fix over there before mom sells the place. That black snake hangs out there pretty regular. It goes in there and hangs out under the shelving in that corner. Sure wish he was a bit more hungry, though. A mouse crawled over my feet in the 57 week before last. I just saw him yesterday, before he went streaking.

Seems your center light fixture isn't going to provide a lot of useful illumination. Also, slide the 2 end units out to the first perlin and tilt up a little, and they may provide a little more light under the vehicle.

For centering the vehicle, get it right where you want it on the runners and have DD put a piece of tape on the wall directly inline with the center of the steering wheel. That will get you very close on most vehicles.



Too damned HOT and humid up here to do much. We spent 3+ hours Friday and Saturday, ripping out buckthorn and cutting box elder trees in the mornings. About died from the exhaustion. Today, we were going to take it easy and not sweat .... yeah, right, just walking around the yard, spot spraying weeds was enough to soak my shirt...
Yeah, hot and humid here, too. Yesterday I was soaked through just sweeping the floor in the shop. The tape on the wall is a great idea. I'll have to remember that one. As far as the lights are concerned, I'll probably end up adding another fixture on the angled braces at the head of the lift. The light over the hood is the last in the string, so it will be easy to wire it in.

This labor rate sign hung in my shop in the mid 90's. It's so different in Idaho, we have a $50 rate for a few insurance companies. Or customer pay rate is a whopping $57.

MARTINSR Just a tip for you old guys. I got a 1.00 magnifying lens for my welding helmet, OH YEAH that helped a LOT! I can almost weld once again. I also you will notice have my welding jacket taped to the helmet. That is so it's over my back so the garage light can't shine in onto the inside of the lens on the helmet creating reflections! Oh HELL yeah these two things made a HUGE difference in my welding, wow what a difference!
