This first photo shows taking the werck out side on the picnic table where I had room to see if I could remove the remaining stuff with minimal damage.


Managed to get stuff removed with minimal damage.
Inside my 'shop', this is a piece of old 1" thick building foam. 24" X 36", on top of an art table next to my bench, where I will try to rebuild it.

Go for it Clay. With your talent you will have it fixed to the point that no one will ever know you had to do a rebuild.

I am so glad to see you rebuilding this dio. It has always been high on my list of favorites. I would hate to see it scraped.

The garage is getting a new back wall. This is a piece of 5/8" construction foam. It has been laying around for years. Just big enough with a minor trimming. It won't be warping like the old foamboard did.
A character flaw, I guess, but I usually save tag ends of stuff. Comes in handy some times.

Nothing wrong with saving leftover scraps. Re: hammer and chisel, they come in handy during gator season too!

Glad to see you rebuilding this, I always enjoy seeing your builds pictured in and in front of this Dio. The first time I saw it was when you built that wild squirrel head car.

Putting some windows in the back wall. Might show some back ground light thru the open front door. Back side shown here, beveled to eliminate the thick wall showing,

This is great. We all could use a dio/display for our built and WIP shots. Your work here is a real inspiration Clay.

Addressing some of the damage, the shop truck had taken a hit. Might need it to chase some parts.

A little history, This model was built in 2006. In a moment of brilliant inspiration, I had made a set of 6 carb scoops out of elbow macaroni. Checking it out several months later, out in the studio shed, I discovered that some vermin had eaten all of the macaroni. I later got some plastic scoops to replace them.

Too funny. So is that where the squirrel skull came from for that wild build, you caught the little bugger?

Next is the old beater I had setting in front of the garage with a for sale sign.
Story on this one is that it's the one that cured me from using salt to create weathering effects ( I use fine, filtered actual dirt now). I had this looking pretty good, but again, out in the shed studio, mother nature threw me a curve ball. After some time had elapsed I found a thin layer of moisture over certain portions and whitish residue had formed. Florida humidity had saturated all of the salt that I had used. Model was never the same.

Between weather and vermin you have had your problems Clay. Both of those trucks though have the potential to be outstanding again. popcorn popcorn

Do you ever use sand in place of salt?

Yes I do, exclusively. I have a couple of batches of different sifted coarsenesses.I even have a can with it filtered thru a paint strainer, for fine textured surface rust.

Nice to get a little history behind the scenes. You will get the garage back up and running in no time.

This 40 Ford junker was the first model built specifically for the garage. Built while the garage was under construction.


Rebuild will have blacktop out front !
