Man, I feel so sorry for my friends who have so many tools they don't have room to store them. So sad, so sad.

Seriously, it does become a problem. Everytime I see something I really want I find myself asking if it is worth the space it will take to store it.

The space becomes a valuable commodity itself.

You bought a new Matco box? Did you have to take a second on your house?

I went out with the thought of starting the left kickboard piece. Oh yeah, no problem, I'll get it ready and make a pattern, one problem, the cross brace was in the way. Well, There was no reason for it to be there anymore so out it came. But it was NOT easy with the cab stuffed up against the wall and the doors on not having a good shot with the die grinder to cut the welds, I had to get creative. But it's done, that's all that matters! Tomorrow I'll start on the kickboard area.

Footloose was amazed how heavy the doors are but he hung them today. I do have some pics of stuff but they are ho hum so meh. Another peek at the battery charger before dark and I yank it. No ride tonite either. Darn self. I'd put myself to bed with no supper but burp its too late.
Is the Beemer going to be an LS i have seen a LOT of them lately with LS5 and LS 4s,, or will it be an I6 mabe with turbo.
