Jason,

The side wall is 10' on mine but to make clearance half of my shop has a vaulted ceiling to get extra clearance for the lift.

I like the vaulted ceiling idea. I have my foundation in right now. Will start framing as soon as I finish the house and get moved in (projected March 23). Will need to get the shop done prior to the end of April as that is when the new owners are closing on my current house and I need a place to put all my tools and cars. Here is a pic just after the floor was poured. Lots of concrete as it is built into a hill plus had to do 4' deep footings as well.

You will be done before me.  We expect to move in around mid May.  You can see the concrete pad for the shop in the back right.  Are you putting in a lift?

Yes I will be putting in a lift as well. How large is the lot? We have some crazy zoning around here. I am out in the county (not in town) and I had to have over 2 acres to be able to build the 40x40, so I found a 2.02 acre lot. :), otherwise I was limited to 28x36. If I wanted larger than 40x40 I would have to have greater than 5 acres. On the house we just finishing up the interior trim and bedroom carpet is going in next week along with appliances, then it is cleaning and moving in.

I am in the county too but my lot only had to be 1/2 acre.  Did you put footings in for the lift or just poured a slab with correct thickness?  I poured 2 pads and the thickness is about 8 inches.  Will support 13,000 lbs.

I poured footings as well had be 14" per code for a lift due to my soil composition being pretty much 100% sand. It's like I live on a beach, in Iowa.

The shops ceiling is half flat and half vaulted.  You can see this in this picture if you look closely.  When I looked at it today I will be able to raise the car enough so that you can walk underneath it.

Here is a better picture of the vaulted ceiling.  You can see how much more room for the lift.

Shop is coming along.  By the end of the week the drywall should be done and then painting the interior can start.

After a 4 yr wait I finally got an A 855 5 speed tranny for my RR project.  With a .70 OD the 4.10 rear will be freeway friendly when this project is completed.  I will be turning 2330 @70mph with the 4.10 rear axle.

Cant wait to see the project finished. Hope you post a video when your completed

 

I plan to document the build for this as I go along.  I can't believe that it took 4 yrs for this to be produced and so far only less than 100 have been made for A and E bodies.  This is one of the first RR ones to be made for a bench seat model (B body), most are for the bucket seat ones..

I found the shifter that I needed.  Hurst is now producing them again and was able to get the bench seat model that I needed.  It was actually cheaper to buy the new one than to have the old one re-chromed.  Also was able to get the correct lens for the shift pattern from them.  These parts will be in next week.

Here is an original A833 tranny.  You really can't tell the difference between the new 5 speed and the old 4 speed if you don't look at them closely.  The obvious difference is that the new has an aluminum casing while the old is steel.  What they did was to design the overdrive gear to use the reverse lever so they maintained the same appearance, that lever has 2 functions instead of 1 now.  The benefit is that besides keeping the original looks you don't have to chop up the cars tunnel to install the other 5 and 6 speed trannies that are available now.

Tires that I plan to use are:

FRT - G60-15 Goodyear

Rear - L60-15 Goodyear

 

Rims will be Black steel that were standard for the car with hubcaps.  Car will look something like this with a half black vinyl top and turn down exhausts, not the machine gun type that many of these cars had.  Color is Curious Yellow.  What do you guys think?
