I ran all of the electrical and laid the outlets the way I wanted them. I put power everywhere and 240V outlets in every corner. Rick Davis wired it and set me up perfectly for me. He'll be an LG member very soon. Aimee and I insulated the walls and laid up the 4x12 sheets of rock. She and I taped and textured the shop. This took us almost a week alone at night until late.





After paint, the outlets went in and the box was terminated.

four days later, it was wedding time! We wanted something really laid back so it was jeans, boots, BBQ catering, and Buck Ford and the Pure Country band. Was a hell of a way to christen the new ship.

An hour after we got home from our honeymoon- it was on. I used the Rustoleum Rock Hard epoxy on this shop. Last time I used the standard stuff they peddle and found it so-so. This stuff is no joke. It takes a little more prep, but it lays out better and seems much more dense.

Got my Hermance up!



Moved the '29 in for now. The Pepsi sign was my birthday gift from my wife. It's bad ass. It's 8'x8' and used to hand in the bottling plant in downtown Sacramento. She found it in the back of some shop in the south area and snagged it for me. It's stamped "Pepsi Co. Bottling plant 7, Sacramento 1960" on the back. Made some brackets and threw it up there. Two post still has to be put in and I still need to take down the mason jars we hung for the wedding and the bistro lights. I'll be using 6 T5HO housings in this shop at 17,000 lumen each. Fab area is coming together, but I still need to bring the brake and the welders in. Air still has to be plumbed, but the reel is up as is the reel for 110 power. lots to do, but I'm taking it one step at a time.

Great thread to follow. Congrats on the union.

Still in Roseville? PM me with property details if so. My whole family relocated up there and may be looking at some fixers with land (1-2 acres), mainly for a shop LOL..

I used the Rustoleum (1st phase was beige 11 years, then went grey right over the top, 3 years ago) holds up fine on these hot Livermore days after thrashing these cars with the tires coming back boiling.

Also, what are you going to use for a driveway?, i've seen some driveways with grass through some sort of cinder block, looks great and mowable, my thought is u cant use everyday, but looks very "backyardy"

Anyways, cheers, mike

Thanks for the congratulations guys. I'm a very lucky man.

We moved to Orangevale and are much happier here. Hard to find land in Roseville anymore unless you want to pay some mega money. Orangevale is about the last hold out for land in the North area without paying millions. There are four hot rods on my street and my direct neighbor across the street restores army Jeeps. Pretty cool

As far as the terra solution, I'm just not sure. I'd like to put down pavers but they're just huge money. Gravel is a no go due to the sticky tire issues and it'll wash out due to the angle of approach I have to deal with. For now it'll be grass. I'm gonna sell my '29 and my El Camino to build the Fairlane so there won't. E much traffic on it for a couple years.
