Usually in the bosses shop if I can head off failure, otherwise wherever it decides to bite me.

Can't really see the work area, but its basically all the dirt within 10' of the truck

New house we're moving to has a 20'x8ft' level cement pad which abuts the side of the brick house. Looking forward to dripping some oil on *that* badboy

hey, still on for tomorrow? I drove the beast around today, she's riding good, I'd like to see how she runs going up the mountain (at least it's all downhill coming back..which may be scarier)

Here's where I work; you can't really tell from this picture, but it's got two concrete tracks for the vehicle wheels to roll on, with dirt in the middle and both sides. I have the top flat section of a Blazer fiberglass top that I cut up and use as a portable floor wherever I need to use my creeper, and for the engine-hoist, I have some 8' lengths of heavy vinyl used as the scuff-boards in a hockey-rink to lay down as tracks for the casters to roll on. You can also see the puny garage in the background, which usually functions as a staging-area/storage-booth for whatever I'm working on.



The plan is to build a larger garage on the site of the existing one, and have a flat concrete pad in front for exterior work.

In the woods behind my buddy's house. Soon though, we'll take it to his work place to do the big stuff. Y'know, the air tools, welders, lifts and cranes, the good stuff!!!

Yeah right. If I had that it wouldn't take a month to change a tranny shaft. What I do need is calander motivation.

A garage is not a garage without your Snap-on girlie calender. Just having one in the garage while rebuilding an engine will give you 5 extra hp. And it adds up, for every calender you can add 5 more. You must get a bunch of Hp out of your jeep. LOL

Under a large ceder tree...and unless it's really raining stays dry underneath at which point out comes the tarp.I see this as practice for having to wrench on the trails.Not that I wouldn't jump at a heated garage

I work in the driveway. Pulled the transfer case Tuesday and it started raining and has just stopped 30 minutes ago. Got to love it.
