I'll be watching this one to.

As a side note Doc, I heard a rumor that Mr. Bedford is moving back to your neck of the woods.

The car, somehow, makes it into every shot and I don't have any good pics of the shop.

It's 30' deep x 26' wide - 12' ceiling, wired, insulated and heated. They extra height is to accommodate a (possible) future lift. It houses the common stuff a guy needs to build a car at home, tools, air compressor and a welder (or three, if I drag a couple of mine over there). Otherwise, its boring as any garage.

Sorry, the lights... I built a similar shop a few years previous and discussed the project with Btard. I have a lift and when I have a car pressed to the roof, it darkens the space considerably. I wired for a strip of lamps at the same height, but still haven't installed any. He did and lift or no lift, we use them every time we work on the car. They make a big difference, as they're so much closer to the actual work... that, and our eyes aren't getting any better.

I've heard the same. He, Btard and myself are mutual good friends and it'll be nice to have him "home", if it happens. (I'm sure some of your community will think they've gone deaf... you know, without the constant voice. )

Torchie: I have a terrible sense of smell, so it takes a while for me to catch on. (Could be related to the lack of blood and oxygen reaching my brain.)

Great gif there, forbig.

So obvious once I saw it. I just wonder why I never thought of putting lights low like that. I'll be getting some more LED units as soon as they show up cheap at Costco again. I think I will lower the ceiling lights to a better location also.


Thanks!

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

My pleasure, Skip. My shop needs some upgrading as well... seems it gets darker every time I step in there!

I am a month past having cataract surgery. It is amazing how much I couldn't see before. Things like the lines in the road at night when its raining. I can read street signs again. Much more light is getting in now. Still need reading glasses, but the rest of the world is clear without glasses for the first time in 30 years or so.

The lights in that shop are done here often when it's used for painting much. Any over head light on when fresh paint is flying is an invite for a fossilized bug in your paint job...

That's where I've seen that. Paint booth.

BTW, those places make me dizzy.

Mom said I'd go blind. (I didn't know at the time, she meant eventually.)


Back to the re-coupe.

Nestled in its new home, Btard and Btard Jr. stripped the car of its interior, glass, doors, fenders and trunk lid... then lifted the shell from its chassis...
