Looks like your on the bell lap....the finish line is in sight.
Great job as usual for a Bob Legere project.

Jeff, I'll have to plan another trip to Florida to see the finished job.

Bob-
I didn't realize you were building a garage. I am a little disappointed in it though. I mean, concrete and wood? I figured you would have made it out of aluminum and the remains of old rally cars and tig welded the whole place together....

I don’t build stock replacement trailing arms, just the heim-jointed performance versions. I am still probably a year away from being able to do that again though.

Best bet would be to contact OGTS or Opels Unlimited for some rust free west coast trailing arms.

Any updates on the shop Mr. Bob?
Nothing here I’m afraid, only on Facebook. I haven’t uploaded photos here since the site changeover.

Basically all I’ve been doing is painting and planning storage.

Thanks for your reply. I'll check with OGTS for used ones.

I probably spent the better part of 3 months designing and redesigning the shop.

Once the general size was established, I made multiple copies of the floor plan, and then armed with a list of my cars/tools/parts/fabrication equipment, I drew in multiple shop layouts until it all worked.

I didn’t necessarily know exactly what I wanted, but I knew what I DIDN’T want from years of compromising.

Hopefully it works out as I well as my planning predicted it will!

Not really that close, IMO. I figure I’m six months away from having the shop set up, since I still need to build the storage lofts and then storage shelving, then move everything into place from 100 miles away.

I’m guessing at least a year away from building stuff for other people. I have projects I need to get done personally that take precedence.
