I've been cleaning up in the garage lately, because it got a little 'crowded' again on the floor and also because I got a new toy to play with and had to make a some room for it...

Meet my tire-changer... (or, how it's called?)




Have been looking for awhile for one of these and recently got a sweet deal on this one.

In the mean time I've also been tinkering with the selfmade parking-brake system on the '60 I had to  make from scratch.
Here's how it looks at the moment;

Uptil now I've been mounting and changing tires by hand and unmounting them with some help of my carlift, but got a little 'tired' of that... 
Now I can change a tire on a rim within2 minutes, compared to 20 minutes...

My Shop wish list is a 80 X 80, two story heated building, 2 lifts, a CNC,  and a larger shear and brake/roller.  Paint booth or equal home grown.  Then I can space out and set everything up properly.  25 X 80 would have to be sealed off from the shop so I can work and park some cars.
 
Oh yeah, a new air compressor.  That poor thing doesn't owe me a dime.
 
But what Herman has will do.

Yeah I know, what I have is not really worth mentioning, I know, but it's all I have at the moment...
Did I mention I have underfloor-heating?

The things I still wish for are also a brake and a lathe, and eh... oh yeah, double the garage space and number of carlifts...

I wish i had air tools and a 3 bay garage with at least 1 lift, that would do wonders for me.

I was talking about just Mopar, I do know that the biggest fins ever
were pull on the 60 300. I added caddy in the last post for GP.
