Monday June 8th, 2009 Update

The shop underwent an atomic clean up. Walls were scrubbed, floors were scrubbed, and tools were organized. No surfaces under 10 ft high was left untouched. In addition, the floor plan was set up to gear up for the arrival of the auto lift (arrival and installation later this week). The shop will be fully setup to house the Fusion in a couple of days.
