    Do we have to clean it? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Will this be a judged event? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif My truck is already put to shame by 99% of the rigs on here; now my shop too???

    Good thing I am good looking otherwise I would be 0-3 in OFFICAL PICTURE threads. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I tried, but I lost my camera in my shop. Believe me, you don't want to see it.

    Re: Official \"Post a photo of your shop\" thread

    hmm to give you an idea- here's what in my garage- 2 yard tractors (dont you dare call them lawn mowers)...the xr650, the four-trac, all the interior from my truck..(cept the seats)...big tool box- 5-6 littler tool boxes, think thats it. It's big enough to park a 'vette in- and that's IT. Cant get a full size pick up in past the windsheild/cab....would never been able to get my truck in- even if it rolled in on it's rims- just woulndt fit........

    BUT I do have access to john's brothers garage- which is a 3 bay- heated- 220v, that my truck fits in, with plenty of room to move around..........then theres that shop that the big trucks park in.....though that ones not heated...but is HUGE....at John's brothers- we've got access to all the "big guy" tools....(im almost as cool as greg!)

    I'll take some pics of mine today- if you can see anything when I open the door......and this weekend of the luxury shop we'll be working in.

    Here's an old pic of my barn - before I did a lot to my 69. It's a 40 x 60 and is very full at this point, nothing like the clean shot you see here!

    Change the rain to snow, and the location to NY, and thats my shop too!

    I'll be so when spring hits and I can take the boat out of the barn... the truck doesn't fit in but at least I can have room for the tools and workbenches again.
