    I would have guess a majority of the older buildings up north are like that.

    thanks,

    I do have to clarify. The motor is not original. It has about 150K of the motor. but the car has the total 250. considering the amount of suspensions I've replaced the 250K is only on a few wear and tear items still left on the car. Like the Steering pump (which is on its last leg), Brake cylinder... Actually now that I think about it, I don't know of any other wear part other than the body its self that original.

    I've replaced the front and rear suspension hubs and all with used parts, all the motor components other than the intake and valve cover are not original, steering rack has been changed. Its almost a 10 yr younger car

    small update. small but important

    I ordered a carport to turn into a temp booth. It will be installed monday

    I'll be getting the material to set the compresssor up (concrete, lumber, roofing) next to the house. The wiring is mostly done. I have to run it out of the attic down where the compressor will be. After the carport is up, I already have lighting to install along the sides for the booth as well as my big 6 lamp HO fluorescent that works for the overhead.

    I'm really excited that I have a roof to work under now. Weather can shove it!

    Don't know how you've made it this far without something somewhat indoors or under a roof! That's dedication I guess though right :P

    When I didn't have a garage I used our old carport for tractors and attached plywood to the sides and used giant cfl tube lights my dad kept when he had all the lights redone in his work place:p carports work great if you enclose them!!

    I did borrow a back patio and what little space of a garage there was to pull the motor the other couple times. But as for all the rest yes open to the elements and on the gravel :-\
