Show us where you do your builds and keep your favorite tools. This is my favorite place other then the lake on Sat. Or Sun.

I hope yours isn't as messy as mine.LOL

I build mine on the bed... Spraying and glassing is done out on the patio, or in the 8x5' shed. Airbrushing is done in the loft..

I started on the kitchen table and that lasted about two days before the wife kicked me and the boys out.:D:D

I'm limited to the kitchen table, or the patio table on the balcony... gotta love condo life in the city... I NEED a basement and proper work bench!

I reckon you have to much machinery:p, you need to send some of it to my already overcrowded shed:D

Nice workshop, you must do more than just boat hardware to invest in what you have.

90% of the work I do is RC boats parts but occasionally do other things .

Here is a oil pan cover and some wheels I made for the local Porsche dealer.

Those wheels are awesome! Did you make everything, or fuch looking centers for existing barrels? Either way, fuchs are quite possibly my favorite porsche wheel. I love that the new 911 speedster comes with larger versions.

Thanks,They are a 3 PC assembly made out of solid billet alum. Made them as 3 PC assemblies so that he was able to change the weight of the tires.

Did you machine the centers as well? They look just like OEM Fuchs, VERY nice work!
