A tricked out tow motor. That's something I can honestly say I've never seen before. How far from being completed is the beast? Nice shop ya got there.

Hood,
 
  Looks like you need a bigger shop. ;D  But no matter how big, it's never big enough.

Well I started off with just the one part (part with lathes in it) but at that time I only had the Bridgeport, the Colchester Student the small bandsaw and the pillar drill for machinery. I then got a Colchester Triumph and it was still just big enough, then I got the Computurn and because of that there was no room for my welding stuff so I had to get the unit through the back and knocked a hole through the wall to join them. Then got the bigger bandsaw and then the Beaver mill and now I am running out of room in there :(  Just wish I had space like most of you USA guys have.

Thanks for the pics, gives me some good ideas but at the moment I will wait and see what the cost of the GRP panels is as that might be the way to go.

Hood,

If you do use sheet metal or alum  :D  I suggest the following. See pic
My end panel ,   back ,  and front all have the 1" 90 degree corner. Won't get no leaks that way. they overlap each other.
The bottom of the end panel has a 1" x90 in and another 1" x 45 down. 2 latches near the top hold the end panels in place.
You can remove the end panels for cleaning out, or if you get a long part, or to pick up your vise if you drop it. ;D
Or, if you moved closer, I could set you up.

Did you ever get the Hyster finished? I Looked on your photobucket page but didn't see any pics of the completed project.
