After I completed the paver installation in 2013 ( LINK ), it was time to finish the rest of the front landscaping. As always, I am not a contractor; there may be better ways to do this.

I purchased an older Evinrude 2hp boat motor (model E2RCNE), and I wanted an easy way to store and service it – the obvious solution is to build a motor stand/dolly. I started off with a ‘movers dolly’ from Princess Auto – it was made of hardwood and on sale for $14. This gave me […]
Man cave build-up. AKA, the garage. I will let the pictures do the talking…
I was doing some measurements for a turbo installation. It’s been a while since I touched the engine bay, so I thought i’d post a picture of it’s current state.

Big day. After 7 months of hard work, the dash is finally back in. I still need to add the components – such as the extra gauges and the MP3 player. But it is satisfying to see this interior come together. FINALLY.
I’ve been working on this model in parallel with the other Recognizer model. I think I like this one better. I used a lot of reference pictures – especially for the textures. It still needs more work, but it’s almost there.
