Straight.

Mute.

Counter steer.

Brace.

Impact.

A split second I will never forget.

Farewell dear friend.

Chop Shop | Scaffold build

Storage shortage 101… build upwards son.

There was really only one restriction.  The scaffold could not be any lower than the entrance height.

Basic framework laid out.  It will be a 5’x9′ platform.  Used for seasonally accessed items.

In retrospect I should have used a 2″ x 8″ to span the length… but the scaffold to the right has held up pretty well over the past 7 years.

A look from the entrance… plenty of head room.

First sheet of ply up…. I ripped 5’x4′ sheets and walked up the ladder to get them up there.

Phew… 1 up… one to go.

What do you mean 1 up one to go?… well the other scaffold was a bit low… underneath it was more of a crawl space than actual usable space.

Everything came down.

Since I was rebuilding, might as well make them the same width.

Set the height and fix the stud into the brick.

It was nice to have the old scaffold there to work on while building the new one.

Beams up.

Rolled the Healey forward a couple feet to up the ply up.

Done and done.  Time to put everything back and clean up.

No more 2×4’s to the dome.

Used the scraps leftover to build a storage rack.

There it is… just a few more things to put away.

Chop Shop | Suspension…

Finally get around to my suspension!

Just picked up my ball joint tool… So much easier.


Everything out.

Billys ready to go in.  The previous shocks were shot.  I now only bottom out under extreme circumstances.

Fronts done. Rears on the way.

Not much change in ride height. But firmed out the ride.

Renos | double vanity

The double vanity for the master bath arrives.

The unboxing wasn’t too pretty.

There she is. Mom obviously happy.
