This is a 25 year old build that I take back down off the shelf from time to time to add some more details. Lately I've pulled it back down again. Here's a few shots.

The upstairs shelves are a bit empty so I've been adding a few items but mostly cardboard boxes made from paper bags from the grocery store. With all of this inventory, I had to make a dolly to handle all of the shipments. Its made from brass rod and solder. Still working out the wheels.

Thanks so much Dennis. Got the dolly painted and weathered a bit. Made different rims by using aluminum tubing and aluminum flashing from the big box home center. Weathered those up a bit too. Added some packages made from paper grocery bags. Added a few more of those around the shop as well.

Thanks so much David. A bit more work done this weekend. Added a few more vintage posters to the above walls.

Added a few blue shop towels around including under the lug nuts for street rod.

Finished up the packages in the upstairs storage area.

And finally added a 'girly' picture for inspiration for the shop crew. Put it in a discrete place. Every shop needs one.

Thanks for your interest and comments. This has been fun but now its time to put this back up on the shelf and pull down the teardrop camper dio and add a bit more.

Added a few more items over the weekend and put this back up on the shelf. Added was a Mobilgas sign with a soldered brass bracket and a back-to-back printed signs with packing tape over them to make them shiny lie an enamaled sign. Added a dirtied up '29 Ford radiator shell and a few other items. Now I can concentrate on a new build.

Here's a picture of the hanging sign.

Thanks for following along.

Okay !

     Are you to busy to "heat up" my 57 Fairlane 500 ? Here's a tip for you . Next time you want wheels for dollies try the model flying aircraft supplies at Hobby - Town .The Piper tailwheels would work great  .  O.C.G.
