I picked up a nice set of replacement front doors. The original ones are rough. Figured it would be better to have different doors over pieced together doors.

Looks like you're getting good with the metal work. It always seems overwhelming at first but then just takes chipping away at it and it starts coming together. Tons of work though.

Thanks! This project has been really satisfying. Damn near therapeutic.

Other news... I have trusses for the new shop. Construction hopefully starts next week!

Bought a replacement forward cargo door because my lower hinge was peeled back on the original. Pretty happy with the door gap so far.

Moved into the new shop.

All tucked away. I am able to have 4 cars staged and 3 stored. All the pics are taken with only half the LED lights on as well. Might be bright enough

Took a break to spend some time tinkering on my waterpumper. New round eye conversion.

Welded up the rest of the package tray

Got the corner mostly welded in. I am thinking about buying a spot welder... some of these spots are getting quite hard to drill and plug weld.
