Default shop moving time

Have to get everything out of the old shop and cram it into the new one. The professional floor flake is worth every penny.

You part this car out with that garage and I'll come and kill you.

I've worked on 5-6 different miatas in my single car garage crammed with camping gear and tool boxes, including numerous fabrication and other race related projects.

If I can do that, you can button up this car. Get to it.

Best advice I've ever heard was I think from Keith's 7 build. Always do something. Even if it's 10 minutes of only measuring and center punching to get ready to drill some holes in a bracket, get something done. It'll keep you going though the end.

Seriously. I usually compete with rats, palmetto bugs and land crabs for space in my garage.

In fact, I don't even want your EFR anymore. Please, please, please don't give up on the car.

trust me guys - this ain't gonna turn into a FAEL project Just a couple more hurtles to jump and I'll be gtg.
If I part anything out, It'll be the '94 I picked up. Haven't given much thought as too what I'll do with it - which is good cause I'm ADD as hell. Gotta get the beast done first.

This whole house buying thing took a lot more capital than I thought it would - so I'm rebounding from that. $4500 into the shop floor wasnt planned, but seemed like a now or never thing with nothing in it when bought. That 61" Husqvarna wasn't in the plans either unit it took me 3hrs to mow with the 42" Troy Built I had now down to 1 hour - amazingly fast.

Future plans - after the beast awakes - is adding a 2 post lift, naturally
If a good deal comes along, it will happen sooner - it sure will make my flat-paneling job MUCH easier

FEAR NOT - IT WILL LIVE!!

There will always be something that needs your attention, whether time or money. You have to make time for the car. And it gets harder to make it a priority as time goes on. I've got too many demands on me also. Wanna buy a Jaguar? Haha.
