    Rented a storage to store the parts off my new project.
    Had to come up with shelving-----------------

    So I savaged a bunch of tare pallets and scrap wood and built
    my econo-shelving to have room for the parts coming off the car.

        The bad news is that you have developed a chronic condition known as palletosis.

        The good news is that it is not fatal.

                  Last time I needed to "optimize" my storage, I picked up the phone and ordered a 40' connex box. Those things are great for instant storage space. I have two 40 footers now.
                  But yeah, your pallet shelves are much cheaper. I need to dedicate one area to put parts off the next car I build. My parts always end up scattered all over the place.

                  Thanks for the suggestion but I don't Facebook or any other social media. I post here and am starting to post to the Comet
                  site but I have found by reading through a few of their build threads I am learning what I need to know. I thought I was a
                  fair hobby builder but seeing the good ones makes me realize how inadequate I really am.
                  This is my second 65 Comet build so I am familiar with the platform but the 65 Cyclone has to be one of the all time great
                  cars in the styling category in my opinion. Along with my 67 notch of course:)

                  I have a bunch of new c (60’s) misc stuff. I’ll look thru it and see what I got. I also have a complete upper end, heads up to air filter for a 67 289 2 barrel stuff. Very nice stuff.
