    Hi guys!
    I haven't been working much on IH iron lately. I've had a stack of tiles in my shop for about a year, and it was time to get them out of the way.
    Unfortunately our local Sears closed down. BUT the silver lining is, I got to buy thier floor tiles for .20 per each. So, the shop got a makeover...
    The grand reveal!!!

    I still have to do a little decorating, and I have to get rid of the wood shelf. Its ugly, but it was there when I bought the house. So, that's coming out when my nice garage overhead storage arrives. Then I'll be able to store the radial saw, and the lumber, and a few boxes.

    Just thought I'd share an IH addict shop, with others of like kind. Thanks for looking!!! And post up picture of your garage/shop!!!

    Only for the time being. In a week it will look like a tornado ripped through it. I wish I could be that organized all the time.

    My little single car garage is 10' 3" wide. But I've done my fair share of wrenching in there!!! It does get old going THROUGH the Scout to get to the passenger side! Best of luck. Really looks nice.

    My hats off to you. You've done a lot of work to that scout. I couldn't do it in a one car garage. I'm just not organized enough.
