    I like the video.. might have to do the same, it puts things in better prospective seeing it on video. Love the build:thumbsup:
    A herniated disc shut me down, might get it taken care of someday and get another bike but stay off the motorcross tracks lol.

      If I had a selfie stick, I’d do a personal shop tour and explain a bunch of things, lol. I didn’t even show the bathroom, heating system or engine room cuz the place is trashed. I really wish I had those nice floors you did! I’d have to grind mine to do it at this point.

        Nice Cozy shop that is. Ever wonder where everything would go if you ever moved? I never wondered that until a about 7 months ago when I started figuring it out as I just relocated to Virginia for my work after Christmas! It was H@!! figuring out how to get it all in a moveable condition and boxed up just to move it all into a storage garage because of renting an Apt till we found a home. About to move again now into a home we just found w/2-car garage thats finally tall enough for a lift like yours haha. And the beat goes on......

          As an update, installing this oil furnace (compared to same period last year) lowered my hydro bill by $240/month not running that 6KW heater to keep the shop at 52F and only raised my oil usage by about $90/month. I am also keeping my shop at about 64F as well. So much nicer in the shop, clean air... can open a garage door and have immediate heat recovery vs waiting hours.... and the bonus I have a paint baker now! LOL

            I've purchased a few $5 household electric/oil heaters at thrift shops and yards sales.

            They are incredibly efficient, and yes I said five dollars.

                I went from a 1.5 car to a 2 car and would love to add on to it. Here is my shop in all its messy glory

                Starting on the right is my compressor, work bench and toolbox.
                20190323_164915.jpg

                Another work bench for longer stuff like the Dana 60 and you can just see the tailshaft of the Viper T6 sticking out. You have to have a Harbor Freight blast cabnet converted to a top opening
                20190323_164926.jpg

                Wash tank ,cherry picker Mig welder Slip roll break and shear combo in the corner. The 440 peeking out behind the grinder.
                20190323_164936.jpg

                storage and the shop dog. on the end is the 20 ton shop press and chop saw I did a walk around the car. at least I can walk around the car in this Garage.
                20190323_164944.jpg

                It may be a bit tight but magic still happens in here or at least alot of cut, fit, grind, weld, repete.
