They have a Detroit powered forklift just like that at the shop. They seldom use it though, opting for the big red Taylor instead- just because it has brakes on it and the Clark doesn't.

Thing is a beast.  No floorboard, some brakes, and sometimes won't turn left but it sounds cool.

Looks Great ROP!

 

I would need a bigger man cave for the Benz sign.  I suspect it is broken which is why it is outside?

It had a scratch on it right out of the crate, they had to send another one and I figured I would hang it up in the shop, probably going to hang it on the side of the shipping contaner after I get the tent complete.

What you going to cover the frame with?   Just plastic or some kind  of heavier tarp?

7mil white polyethylene. Supposed to be able to get 4-5 years out of it. It's the same stuff they shrink wrap boats with and make backyard skating rinks out of.

Those HF blue tarps work well-just don't leave them out in the sun😎-that UV is a killer.

Snug as a bug.............in a tent. Everything fits in but I'd better not buy anything else. Now onto the sides and the doors hopefully soon.

it'll have to take the shipping containers with it but anything is possible. I'd rather not have the excess flapping but I can't cut it off until I get the door frame in place
