I have not done this before so it’s going to go real slow. I bought this house three and a half years ago and the garage was built by a previous owner. He was a builder so he used half of the garage for his business and the other half of the garage he played with race cars. There are two Reznor heaters in there and they do a good job and will heat the garage really well. I only use them some evenings and some on the weekends but they don’t seem too expensive to run. It’s a 40x60 garage with 16 foot ceilings

I cut a wedge in the drivers door pillar to pull it in. I then cut the side wall to match the cut under the drip rail and then pulled the walls in. I have some butt weld clamps holding it. I now need to remove the tape, grind the paint and tack the drivers side panel back to the roof piece. Slowly.....side by side, piece by piece, corner by corner and then put the front door back on....wedge cut it to lean in and then fit the top of the door.
This is going to be a loooooong project!!!!

I always like seeing the progress on this chop. I can't wait to see the next update.


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Another step done......only 6,487 more steps to go!!! Fitted the rear corner and started tacking it in place. Reinstalled drivers door so I can slice it and pull inwards so I can line up the top of the door posts and start reattaching the top of the door.
