Hey Paul, I'd contact a moderator on the storage space issue or on getting a sub-forum or sticky for writeups.
Moderators know I'm here. ;)
I still think you should hire part-time help who you can mentor Paul. Even just call it training.
I'm confined on space. But still, before this pandemic, I'd would have Mud guys work side by side with me, on their rigs only. I talk their heads off with cruiser info.

My shop was more like a classroom, before the pandemic. Reminded me of when I taught at a collage (Metro State College), as a student teacher in aerospace. I found teaching really made me shaper on the subjects. In fact, I was first ever to pass a certain Navigation test, and do it in less time than anyone else had even finished the test. The Dean of Area Space (my boss), call me in his office the next day. He asked: "how do you think you did on the test?" I said; "I don't know, kind of finished early". I knew this (finished early). As I waited ~30 minutes for the next student (my girlfriend) to finish the test. Dean then said you get 110%, as you're the first ever to get every question correct. He then offered me offered me a permanent job as a professor. Somedays, I wish I took him up on that! Point being; My helping others here in mud has sharpen my skills, as a 100 series specialist. The forum members nor the moderates own me anything or and special space.

So, I owe all of you! :cheers: So I THANK YOU all, for the opportunity to be of some small service.

Building a shop, is Dream:
I dream of cutting through my shops back wall and building a larger shop in back of it. One with high ceilings for a lift and two stalls, With work area for engine rebuilding and storage. Second stall for long term restore projects and body & paint work. Plus either space between the two shop or drive through second shop also. For outdoor wet work and storage.

Then, I'd have room for helper/student. I've actually had neighbor, some mud forum members, some VET's and active duty personal volunteer to come help/learn. Be nice to have companion in the shop. I do like people! I could also help out fellow VETs, which is important to me. Some VET's, really got a bad hand dealt them.

I made and investment, to raise the money, to build the shop. But unfortunately the Pandemic "wiped" that out. Did not see that coming, in worst case scenario.. Oh well, we play the hand dealt us and be grateful to god for what we have!

You've got 6 place holders up front too.
Thank you TM, I'm aware! I had other plans for those. But I'll be moving stuff to those from OP and keeping index in OP. When I've more time. For now, I'm just deleting wording from OP, for each new index add. I am too wordy anyway....LOL.. as most known!
