Re: NJ Suburban

Sandblasted some brackets tonight. Saturday I'll put a coat of epoxy primer on them. Can someone tell me what the L shaped piece is at the top center? My guess is that it supports the hood latch.

I bet you are glad to have that done. That smaller stuff takes a lot of time.

They Look good.

Re: NJ Suburban

Thanks Leon. I’m just chipping away at small stuff. They finally broke ground on my pole barn so by summer hopefully the exterior paint can get done. The barn will be 24’ by 40’ with heat and 12’ ceilings.

That is just about the ideal size. My shop is 30 x 40 and I can get 3 vehicles abreast with narrow shelves on both sides, and plenty of room to walk between them.

Itís been a while since I looked at your build thread. You are doing great work! I love the tach upgrade. Congrats on building a shop!
