Extra points for straight six crank in corner.

I never liked the metal, always felt cold and every time I worked on guns I had to cover it.

It'll puncture and scratch but if things get too bad, just glue another piece on top. You can usually find leftover pieces at custom cabinetry shops. If the scratches aren't too deep, you can use filler putty to hide them.

I have a steel workbench top, but I saved a sink cut-out from my bathroom vanities. I use it a lot when working on messy stuff or potentially nasty things (like filling batteries with acid).

That's all the encouragement i need to save the $$$

mine is doubled up too, but just regular plain old plywood.

Why thank you!

Unfortunately, I have to subtract a bum load of points because the crank is STILL in the corner, and not back in the engine.

LOL. He sneaks into lots of my pictures. As soon as I pull out the phone and start taking pictures of stuff, he gets curious.

Nice job!
I badly want/need to build a lean-to behind my garage, as well.
Nice Ranger, too. Best truck I ever had (and I still miss it).

yep not a problem.. if you dont drag the motor over it with sharp edges/bolts sticking out, it will hold up very well.. and oh so easy to clean up...

ill prob. end up using MELAMINE MDF board since formica is more work and more expensive.... i would have to put down 1/8" plywood anyways so might as well finish it in one process instead of a couple...
