Wow, she is talented, very nice!  I believe the only thing my wife ever made for my garage is her way out of it!

 

(and I'm kidding, she likes the old cars and tolerates me impressively...in fact, she's on my case now to find a 50's convertible, a notable absence in our list of cars....)

 

David, for putting up with you (us?) she deserves something like the one I gave Dale:

Taos Chrome 2010 - 1954 Cadillac 009.jpg

Ha!  I do have permission to get a Corvette when the time is right.

We bought our Corvette 40 years ago as a wedding present to ourselves and still have it.

Absolutely,

She (your bride) has the USE of it whenever she wishes, 

But with me as navigator...

You have too much fun as it is-

 

... and Dale still loves your Pierce and your cream Packard Super-8

Now she is helping me with another art project.  I am putting a Buick on the wall and dressing it up.  Putting some undesirable extra parts to work. :P

Run PVC conduit under the concrete slab to facilitate electric runs from one side of the building to the other. Do the same with PVC schedule 40 plumbing pipe for compressed air outlets with quick connects.

-M

 NEVER use pvc for air lines. It can explode and shatter you with pieces.

 Also, in case of a fire, it will melt and feed the fire with a blast of air that will look like a blow torch.

 I used pvc under the concrete floor to save money and someone decided to tighten the pipe that came up from the floor. It shattered the plastic under the floor and made the line useless.

 (had I welded a piece of steel across the pipe  that was embedded in the concrete to prevent it from turning, it would still be working.)

 PS, water will also collect in the under ground pipe due to condensation.

 Water, air and elect. lines should always be installed so that you can service them and add extra connections as necessary.
