Borrowed a friend’s nice SLR, put on a wide angle lens, and camped out in the rafters, running up and down the ladder to get the layout. Left a spot open for the rear wheel and engine, when they come in, and can swap out the tank, forks, and mufflers for the new ones when we decide on ’em / find ’em.

Testing layouts and ladder muscles.
Clean concrete slate.
Brought the heater up there with me (0ºC in the garage this week).
That massive order with Eastern Beaver took the longest.
More testing.
