Looking good. Nice job.
Love this build. The fact you are doing it in a tiny garage in the City is even better. And man that Country Club Malt Liquor sign brings back...
As a long time auto repair shop owner I'm sorry to see this. On my trips to Austin I would always do a drive by. That shop was legendary.

Joeyesmen's looks right....
Happy Birthday Danny !!! from another guy hitting the big Seven-Ohhhhh this year.

Wow, I stand corrected. I certainly understand keeping your house from looking like a junk yard but not being able to have a clean and neat hobby...
I live in California, own an auto repair business and am a hot rodder. I have NEVER heard of anyone having the sort of problems you are...
