      For February the EF Lottery theme will be "Work Area" . For this month, post media or links, or a written story for the area you have to work on your rig(s). These do not have to be covered work areas, if you have to work outside, then that is your work area.

      Ending and drawing date will be on or about March 4th.


      Goal: To encourage members of the Explorer Forum to submit a photo and/or vid, or written story in accordance with the theme and award two members with an one year elite membership.

      Only one submission to be entered into the drawing per member. Submission can contain multiable pics and or video(s) and/or links to pics/vids.
      Members are encouraged to post positive feedback

      I have two places I work on my Explorer. The first picture is in the garage, where I prefer to work(especially when it's overly hot, cold, or wet). The second is the other place I work, which typically isn't even in the driveway.

      I took this right after I successfully installed my new headlights.

      Here is the other location I work in. Here I changed my first radiator and water pump, boy, that project was a screamer! I also started to change the headlights here, but then it got dark and started to rain so I parked her in the garage to finish that morning. I can't wait to get back out there in the summer to overhaul the sound system!

      This was my work area when I first got her. This is where I was replacing fuel pump. I now have a 2 car garage and part og garage once done will be my work area for all my vehicles.

      I either work on them where they're parked in this photo, or more preferably in the driveway that's right next to them. I did install shocks, a hitch, and did some other work inside at my former workplace, but most of it happens right here.

      One of 2 1/2 places these days:

      Either in my drive (won't quite fit in the garage, hence the 1/2) or an empty bay at my fire station...

      Here I was installing the F250 shock towers...
      [​IMG]

      Trying to do the RA extension project...
      [​IMG]

      Not the normal empty bay, but where it was when I replaced the speaker for my siren...have also used the space when I rebuilt my transmission, replaced my slave cylinder, rebuilt and installed the manual t-case and where I'll be soon to replace my clutch...

      My shop, located West Central AZ, is 2 miles east of the Colorado River. Desert country. If something not easily bought is needed, or something breaks, likely as not I'll make a new part. Here's my Bridgeport Mill, Wirefeed, and Buzzbox behind it.

      Fan spacer being made for my '94 GT 5.0. Got rid of electric fan, have good clutch fan now, bolt spacing on '94+ 5.0 was increased, pilot diam. too, think they make one, but more fun this way!

      My old Craftsman lathe, bought 61 years ago! Don't scoff! It turned out all the round parts for the "steam car" in last image.

      Far end of shop, horiz. band saw, oxy-acetylene torches, big blue cherry picker, a brand-new Motorsports 5.0 HO lurking behind the roll-around.

      The "crane" at work, raising 2X8 rafters replacing roof trusses, for headroom for my new lift!

      My original garage was a 2 bay with 8 foot ceilings. The different color roof and the carport I added a few years back. I put the rack in there with a high roof. I got to old to be rolling around on the floor so I added the rack. I work on all my cars and friends cars to help pay for it. I can double park if I need when bad weather is forecast.

      And this is where I work when I need space, it might take a while, and/or I want to be closer to my tools.

      Mesa? Whew, with summer approaching, it might be nice to have a good, side-draft swamp cooler mounted outside that lattice-work! imp

      LOL it does get warm. Last summer I installed a couple of electric fans on my transmission cooler while we were staying with my In-laws. He was nice enough to let me use his garage, and man it was HOT in there. Glad I have the shaded ventilated car port. But a big swamp cooler does sound nice..

      We have an open floor plan factory-built, south of Bullhead City, hotter than Mesa often. I chopped a hole through our bedroom wall, mounted a 6500 CFM sidedraft outside the wall, the cooler thus blows through the length of the house, no ducts, and exits the far end out a bedroom window. We are happy with it. imp
