Should be ready to move in around Nov 8th. to 15th.  Still have lots to get done, Outside work, like put shingles on roof, vinyl siding, gutters, garage doors...Then to the interior, wiring, sheetrock walls and ceilings, then paint, then diamond polish the floor, then pour the 32x36 parking pad and another 14x125 drive way connection to other shop and drive way. Then plumb the new compressor air lines, install the Air Hose Reels, the Elec. Cord Reels,, then move the 4 post lift and all the tool boxes and equipment...

Then go shopping for new equipment....

Oh darn, I have a real job and a Studebaker to get started on as well.... where do we find the time ???

Oh yeah, better get off here and start making a pile of stuff to load in the trailer tomorrow and pack for Maxton..

Darn, I sense a busy Winter for me and my gang...

It is always fun being the hero, when there is a problem with a car.  Thanks for letting me play with your car.  It is a real sweet ride.
Come check the shop out if you are down by the beach in Wilmington, NC.
