Re: Smitty's Bus

That ceiling is totally not what I expected. I was thinking you meant you were planning to use the tin ceiling sheets with the ornate squares embossed in them. I can still remember some drugstores and such from the old days that had them, and I think they are coming back as a retro design element. The ribbed pattern looks pretty good. The "inhouse" (I guess I can't call it an "outhouse") has a unique Li'l Abner meets Buck Rogers look to it.

Carry on . . . . .

Wow, that is very unique. Nice modern industrial design. With that much metal you won't even need your tin-foil hat! Looks like you are doing a great job.

Really cool look, but wondering if it will play hell with cell or wifi signals.

Point taken, should stop posting tired Though with far fewer windows might degrade signal some. I'm hoping to add a Sprint Overdrive™ 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot for internet access and from what I believe it also boosts wireless CDMA(Sprint) signals as well. I'm guessing other cell providers have something like that device as well but would feel guilty pluging any them directly.

Re: Smitty's Bus

You are going to have to raise the roof on your workshop!!! Your shop looked a lot larger when you first started. Good work on the roof brackets, they seem to match up exactly to the curve.
