    Busted some.tires off the 2 SE wheels I've managed to acquire after installing some drop anchors in my garage for my cheap ass tire changer.

    Now to prep the wheels and paint them then scrounge up 2 more.

    Just some home built jobbies. I still want to add nerf rails to the sides like my old Nate's rails if for nothing else than to have a step.

    Broke 200k on my way to work this morning. Was rewarded with a check engine light for a IAC fault.

    I don't have to worry about mileage, my WJ and XJ never actually move.....unless needed to use the jack stands for something else, then they sit on pieces of 2x6.

    Man, real life has a way of taking all your time, and trampling all over any dreams you might have.

    So, I'm not dead yet, but nothing got done to either the WJ or the XJ. The WJ is still sitting, waiting a solution to finish pulling the front axle to complete front coil bucket repair, and the XJ is still waiting on a decent set of knuckles and a repair to the plastic fuel line.

    I've pretty much had it with not having a decent place to work on our vehicles and equipment, and have made it clear I am doing something for a work shelter, even if its a concrete slab and one of the cheap metal carports tall enough to clear the jeeps and the lift I don't have.

    I have picked up a new Titanium Flux Core welder to replace the HF Chicago Electric unit, since my savings for the Vulcan Omnipro 220 kept being spent on life's disasters.

    So I hope to actually post something being actually being done to one of the Jeeps in the next few months, it would be nice to drive something with A/C, instead of my little Ranger farm truck, which I will admit to driving more and more like the little Renault R5 Jason Statham trashed in the first Transporter movie.

    Don't feel bad. I have the shop, but not the money for the extensive project I have planned. Getting the money, but too slow. So I just keep taking mine apart and doing little things that improve it, but not so much you would notice. Pulled my gas tank yesterday so I can put baffles in it. Tired of the gas gauge jumping back and forth when the fuel sloshes.

    I hear ya....I used to check out the Garage Journal forum a lot to look for ideas to tame the mess the attached too shallow two car I have, but got tired of seeing all the build threads where they had a ton of money, a ton of spare time, or 15 capable friends to help "throw together" a complete pole barn kit for less that one of the metal carport-style garages.

    The XJ and WJ loaded with parts I can't make the time or shelter to install, and ever-so helpful family and "friends" are full of advice about solutions I can't afford.

    Hopefully the cooler weather will not turn wet right away.

    I built a portable shop. It was a one car garage built on a steel frame. I was living in a mobil home court at the time. It had a steel frame, 2X5 tongue and groove floor on top of that and covered with steel sheet metal on the floor. Steel studs, insulated and particle board on the walls. I made the roof trusses from sheet metal I ripped and bent. You can have this done at a sheet metal shop and screw the pieces together. I was working at an HVAC company at the time. Then insulated the roof too. I salvaged a hotel heat pump, mounted that in the wall. Put an electrical panel in it and wired it all in conduit on the inside of the wall. Lots of lights too. But one of the neatest things in it was a gantry crane I made for it that attached to the trusses near the walls. The day I bought my XJ for a song and a dance, it had a center bolt broken and the axle had shifted. Drove it into the shop, picked the whole rig up with the crane and fixed it in about twenty minutes.

    When we moved, I loaded the shop on my car trailer and moved it down the street to a new home

    That sounds really cool. I'm going to get some prices on the carport solutions. I know everyone talks down on them, and everybody says they blow away all the time, but I own a couple of welders, I can pour concrete and install anchors, I know basic carpentry, and I can run an electrical circuit. I don't foresee a major influx of extra income, so I'm going to make some thing work.

    My opinion of those 800 car ports is that with some extra bracing and metal sheeting on the side they could be made to take some wind

    Accurate. Just anchoring them can really harden them from the elements. Quickrete is 6 bucks a bag.

    From the ones I have seen where someone thought it through, that does seem to be the trick that makes them viable. Solidly anchored to the ground, properly braced, insulated against the condensation, and thinking though how to avoid water seeping in around the base.
