Vinnie’s garage
#31
Cheers :-)

What if I bolt the wood to the wall (instead of the metal poles)? I could put 2 bolts on each end and every side?

This is how much the (7cm thick) wood wraps around the metal beam:

Another update! Floor is 95% complete, all the dawdust (from turning my garage into a carpenter shop) is gone and after 2 drives to the dump there is space!

Things that need done now include getting electricity in the back, lights (already in) downstairs and hook up the water.

And to top all this off the weather today was great, the Mustang ran strong, the kickdown worked and it had a nice little run. Finally a scratch to my itch :-)

That's gonna be a pretty big detour if I'm not mistaken but you are very welcome of course :-)
If you're really game, I got plenty of time every other weekend.

For others like me that are not great with the metric system...

8 meters equals roughly 26 feet 3 inches
4 meters equals roughly 13 feet 1 inch

Congrats Vinne!

I was glad to spend a few months down under, as it will give you a good feel for what a meter is driving.
