    Looks Great! Don't forget a lot of locks on the door and a 180 lb puppy named "Prescious"... Just good sense.

    Looks good Gable. Is it your business, or your personal workshop?
    Needs a keg in the middle with Austin HAMBers around it.

    We welded some BURLY chain in and have some monster locks..

    the best part is the owner and his son live RIGHT behind it, and its through a locked gate to get to it.. very secure..

    I am thinking about getting another Chihuahua, think that would work? :D

    Man that's nice. Ever think about opening up a business, or are you guys just gonna keep it all to yourselves? Congrats. I wish I had a place like that to work on my cars.

    Nice.

    What are the dimensions? It looks huge.

    I still need to install more lights. My place is a cave, and I needed a reminder, so thanks.

    The shop is about 30X60. It seems huge, and we are building a loft/storage area above where the fridge and first bench are. It even came with two kick ass tiki masks(which Gable did not post the pics of!), a huge compressor (outside), and air plumbing inside. Oh yeah, the fridge was free too! It also came with a janky-ass paint booth inside of it, which me and Outlaw promptly removed with a chain and his truck! We have probably removed 200 yards of wasted romex and lights draped through the ceiling (who needs conduit, right?), and years of stuff left in the fridge (baby formula anyone?). It's going to be killer when it's up and running though. Always ask questions! You never know--it may be for rent.




    :D

    NIce shop. damn the pressure washing sucks doesnt it. Took us 3 days to get thr floors so I could actually tel if it was concrete. There was a machine shop in my space for 10 years before me.
    Landlord said they usually just dumped shit on the floor and THEN cleaned it up.
    naaaaasssstttyyyy
