Looking good Dan!

Some of that looks like weight lifting equipment, but what about the other stuff? What is the motor for?

That'* exactly what it is. The motor I'm not sure what it goes on. It'* just a motor. A really big motor.

There'* no sense of scale in those pictures. The motor is about 6 feet long. It'* way big.

There'* scale, a huge garage door in the background.

Looks very good. Keep it up and you'll end up busy painting a lot.
