Replaced the shackles today. The ones I had in there had poly bushings and they were squeaky as all hell. New ones have rubber





Using the hoist to lift the whole rear end of my truck. Easy peasy

I'm liking your setup!

What's with the empty shell sitting outside the garage, and the other white cab?

The white cab is a rust free one I found last year. Going to use it for my Ranger.



The empty shell is my 1976 Fiat 131 that needs a full chassis built for it. That's the next project once the Ranger is painted.

That could be a really cool project. I had to do a search to see what one looks like.

The garage is looking great! The hoist turned out awesome.

That's the one. My car will be white. I have the body kit and a 2.5 Duratec engine for it. It'll get done one day.

I work in fuel tanks for a living. Don't judge me!

What is this "rust free" you speak of? A Ford being rust free is like a person breathing under water. LOL I still love mine though.
