Thanks, DIYGuy2000. Those benches look great. However much of a pain the border was, it looks cool. The colors of the cabinets and the bench look good, too. I doubt there's anything that those cabinet boxes can't support.

Usually, my place isn't that clean. But when it is, I get out the camera. I built all of the benches myself -- you can probably see that I'm more comfortable working with steel than wood. And the car.

Mark, it's a 1972 tub. But the car is kind of a mongrel. It's got a transaxle from a 1977, brakes from a 1986 Turbo model, an engine from a 1995 model and suspension pieces from a few more sources. It's flared like a Turbo for 9-1/2" and 11" wheels. It's street-driven, but I track it about eight times a year. Here it is last week:

Very nice, I used to own a 70 T model that I restored to prestine original condition, except for the motor and tranny which was replaced with a "S" spec, the view from the front end surely reminded me of those days, with the view of yours from the side I see the extensive mongral work you have done looks great and you look like you have an awesome place to work on it to.

When its all said and done there is usually more said than done

Don't let that pretty car fool you....with Jack behind the wheel....it's fast.

My neighbor down the street knows Jack....and has been on the same track with him....as Kip says "He is fast".

BTW Jack....if you see a nice little BMW 325i out there with a 16 year old girl behind the wheel....that is his daughter....just make sure you put on sun glasses and pin your tongue in your mouth.....


Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.
