It's part of the farmer who owns the trees, we worked a deal for me to just rent it for the time being.

I want to open my own balancing shop for industrial and Ag equipment. So that's the main use of the shop. I'll give you an inside tour tonight!

Hell yeah, congratulations on the shop! Your Subi swaps are always fun to watch, sorry for not commenting on them though.

This is cool, lots of posts from people!!!!

I'm sure I'll share my business questions too. some owners say they would do it again, some say fuck it. Just a small shop that balances shit that spins. I don't want a huge company, just enough so I don't have to work for someone else.

Here's a shop tour, just put some junk in it lastnight, I worked on the square tonight, it's in my house garage. I'm so close to being done it's not worth moving to the shop until it can drive over there. Monday my fuel pump gets delivered. That gives me the weekend to button up loose end shit, fuel pump Monday, test drive!!!

Add a couple vert ramps, and a foam pit, then charge the kids $5 a head to hang out.

Like your frist girlfriend, just stick it in all the way and see What it does..

Looking at a CNC plasma table, just the small unit that uses the hand held plas. I'm going towards balancing and a small fab shop, I'd love to get into powder coating but I know that California would be all up my anus if I did that(legit or not)

I've been working this weekend. But I did get my trailer fender so it flips forward. Now you can open a door and get out of the car without hitting the fender.

Thanks George and Kevin!

What I did was use a cut off wheel where I put the hinge on the front and a latch on the back, cut the slit into the fender and weld those on. Then cut down the fender rest the way to free it up, so once it's cut free you don't need to align it. Tractor supply had the hinge, but that's common shit to buy, the latch, just find something you like.
