My wish list:
Upgrading from the old Audie to a Superflow SF1200 flowbench (it's only money, right?LOL!)
More tooling! (something one can never have enough of)
A new bead blaster.
A new lathe
New air compressor (bigger)
Sheet metal brake (instead of the homemade angle iron one)

Aw, heck, this list could go on for hours if I sit here and dream!

I allways wanted a lift(buddie got one)But not enough room to go up, so what we found was a ramp alignment rack with the air bags. You drive up on it and hit the air and it lifts the car about 2' off the ground. It makes it nice for changing gears,oil,checking rear susp and so on. Plus it fit fine in the shop. It also has a air jack that slides from front to rear for jacking up the car another 2' if needed. We found it at a auction pretty cheap ($500 with comp and 4 new turn plates)it was one of the best things we have got for the to the tire machine....

Some tools that I would like to have, well I would like to have a cordless impact but that is to go to one of my friends, but I would like to have a hydraulic car lift to help work on the car and a new air pop-rivit gun.

pforsythe, I've been racing for 12 years, and my shop has yet to sprout walls or a roof! Hope you have better "garage seeds" than I came up with.

I would like a shop also. I've got a fair amount of tools and everything...just no shop. right now I work on my racecar in a friend's shop or my grandpa's shop. but it would really be nice to have my racecar at my own house to work on it. lol
After (if ever) I get a shop, I'd like a mig welder.

pforsythe- I hear ya buddy we keep planting concrete seeds and the dang thing never grows maybe we need to put in grow lights. lol. The first year I raced we built the shop in the middle of Dec. in Nebraska with a foot of snow on the ground we had to put hot water in the hole as we were digging. Also we were working in the mud for a while in the shop. Ahh the memories
