Blog over de restauratie van mijn '50 Studebaker Commander

Back in Business

December 31st I had to vacate my workshop. The guys I rent it from moved to another place and I was lucky enough to be invited to move with them to a new hall. It is however quite a lot of work to move the mess I made during the last years.
One TR7, presently not driving, one donor car in pieces, definitely not driving and a Studebaker, mainly in boxes and plastic bags except for the bigger parts. All in all a truckload of pieces, workbenches, storage racks and tools. The first three weeks of December I spend packing and preparing the new place. 

It has the same floor area (65 square meters, 700 Sq ft) but It is high enough to build a second floor of about 40 sq meters. Not high, on most of it I can’t stand, but a huge improvement over the old shop. All the parts and the less used tools are out of the way. The last week of 2011 I moved all my stuff. I also bought an old car lift from THF in Hoek van Holland, and repaired and installed it. Today I finished all of that. The chassis is on the car lift, the body and the parts are stored in the attic.

So here it is: Clean, roomy, light. Time to get to work.
