    60x60 Steel Shop

    Started a thread a couple years ago on Pirate but let my star run out and just didn’t want to give them anymore money. Glad to support this one.

    Finished the exterior the fall of 18 and have been tinkering on the inside. Framed up the interior walls with 2x4’s for electrical and putting sawmill boards up for wall covering.

        Thank you. Making slow steady progress. I started collecting antiques a few years ago and it has become almost a bigger addiction than cars...

          Dad was a career Texaco guy, so I always keep an eye out for the older (green T) stuff. Damn they demand quite a price these days!

            I bought the Texaco, Gulf, and the 37 Erie pump at one auction. I paid a pretty penny for it, but got everything for half price. I had the opportunity to get a Sinclair sign, an Amoco sign, and a visible pump but since I told the wife I was “only” buying one sign I didn’t bid and have regretted it ever since...

                I had a chance at a sky chief (dad started in AVGAS) sign but passed as i considered it too expensive. looked it up later and just about fainted. turns out $150 was a damn good price.

                anyway, carry on. Thanks

                  That’s how I felt when I passed up that visible pump...

                              I paid $38.5k for the building. Dug all the footers, formed it up, and did all the rebar/wire myself. Paid about $20kish for concrete, and did all the labor myself with the help of my dad. Haven’t added any receipts up since...
