Good morning everybody. Kinda rough evening last night, boss called at 9:00 to tell me one of our coworkers had died and he was only 55. Had a diabetic seizure Sunday while fishing, stayed in the hospital til yesterday when they sent him home "healthy" and his neighbor found him dead yesterday evening. We're a close knit group and have worked together 12 years with him, Now there's three of us here and a really somber day.

I KNOW Alan has a 5 gallon bucket of paint. I'm sure that would be more than enough to do the truck & Bronco BOTH (& have left over). If I was Rich, I'd be .

Chip sorry to hear about loosing a friend and coworker, hang in there.
I would probably for real shot a guy that messed with my Fords.
I do not want this.....
But would take the arena I am working at, 100x225 and LOTS of room for lots of Fords and a few work shops and a paint booth and a indoor rock pile to crawl on. Here is some of my handy work, the block wall and the fresh sheeting.
It has a 40x40 enclosed shop on concrete and 2 bathrooms.
There is even a Ford truck truck in there, it belongs to a guy in the Army stationed in Germany.
Yea and its for sale....but I would have to move into the camper in the background, lol, or build some kind of dog house to live in.
I would hate to pay to concrete the rest of it to be a proper monster shop. But is has 6" insulation (all walls and ceilings), wired 220, hot and cold running water, all 4 garage doors have auto openers.
