I just finished my Martin and Schwartz 80 short base/top early this week. I have it displayed in my basement now but I plan on moving it to my 18 month twin boys room next week. Here are a few shots as I was putting it back together and the finished product. Enjoy, Mark

Nice job, Mark. I love it when the inside looks as nice as the outside. I'll bet the kids love those swings.

Thanks for the comments and yes I have a very understanding wife that loves this stuff as well. As for the swings... the boys love them because they can swing everyday without worrying about the weather outside and my wife can do the laundry and not worry about what they will get into...

Yes they are metal dealership tags/emblems from all over the nation and Canada. They make a nice border in the room and a great way to display them. Mark

Thanks... The only thing that is missing is the lower pump itself and I re-used all the original conduit to run my wires.
