    I've been "Home-Building" my Hot Rods since I was 14 years old, and now at nearly 63, I just completed a total change to my Model A Coupe I built the first time 30 years ago.

    I Love Real Home Built Hot Rods, and remember, there are NO RULES in Hot Rods.

  2. Been a home builder since day one and do side jobs for friends. Figured out over 40 years ago. I'm just too damned cheap to pay someone else do it.

    Great addition! I'd get a 6" I beam and mount it under those two beams you already have in place. Mount it about in the center of where the pickup is setting instead of the center of the shop so that it serves one bay. Buy a trolley and a chain hoist from Harbor Freight and you will have one of the handiest shop tools you can imagine. Put two trolleys on it and you can lift bodies and frames and set them on tables or body dollies ......one handed. Motors will be a breeze.

    I built 12 cars out this little garage in 18 years. This was the last one. I did everything except for the engine machine work.

    This will be the first car from the new shop.

    No garage...the only things I can think of I haven't done outdoors is machining, full paint jobs (rattle can not included I can paint just in a borrowed space lol) and upholstery...but I'm about to attempt the latter:D
