No matter what size space or what you have, you always want more. Human nature i guess.

Agreed... watching a lot of "car shows" over the year really showcased how they have an area for "metal work" vs. "finish work"... let along painting/upholstery a.k.a. not dirty jobs. The problem is always money to do the job at the time... this shop ended up in a ridiculous amount of cost overruns as well as fighting weather and people to do the work. I am very happy with what I have and I planned it for a very long time, but in the end, there are always things you want (and wished) you could do over.

Oh, I know about cost overruns. The builder of our remodel built the shop- to home standards. It’s got all 2x6 framing, blown in blanket insulation, fully sheet rocked and textured, with plywood and osb exterior sheeting and vapor barrier under Hardieplank siding and then painted and shingled to match the house. Then there was the electrical… I’ve got about $100k in just the building. 🙄

I am not a body guy but trying to get as much done before it goes to a body shop, if I can find one that is not full already. The red one is the donor one. It is swiss cheese. So I will have a running driving rusted bad, parts for sale after a bit. 258 4 speed and stock axles. It does have a snow blade to go with it. Sold as parts do to it being my donor for the VIN# and just a few parts I am taking off of it. It does have 2 sets full doors and the half hard top.

I always find it a little hard to imagine you have that much elevation over there, even though the hiway does go up and down over in that area. I think you said you are at 50 ft. above sea level. We are about 8 ft. and very glad at that considering some are below sea level just a few miles away. I'm about 500 ft from the Mississippi River and when the large ships go up and down the river they are very visible with their decks maybe from 30 to 70 ft above us depending if loaded or not, and the wheel house and masts a lot higher than that.

Yep, its hard to see in the pictures, but my property is basically flat for 75% at 50' ASL, the last 25% is a cliff/steep hill that drops down to the Tchoutacabuff River. My property and the adjoining 8 lots are on a high bluff. It is very rare to have waterfront property here this high and dry. Only way I would ever live this close to the water, don't have to worry about flooding :thumbsup:

Hi everyone, not sure if there is a new member thread so I will just post this here. Bought this '82 from the family of a friend/coworker who sadly passed away 2 years ago. I plan to make a project out of her, gonna keep the original patina (minus rust) and just rehab the running gear and drivetrain. Love me some Scramblers
Old tires were pretty dry rotted, got her some new shoes.

Your Jeep is awesome, but I really love your property. It looks great. I really miss living out in the country.

BTW, have you decided on removing the product decals and adding any factory graphics???
Thanks. I am very fortunate for what I have
Yes. Hoping to buy the factory graphics soon.
