    Been putting various Camaro parts on the walls among the records here in my inner sanctum. Some are just old parts that have been replaced while others have some story behind them

    Some parts are to large for the wall. Might try hanging some from the ceiling

    To the right of the below motorcycle photo (that is me) is half of the third oil seal removed due to leaking but the 4th set (October 2017) has no oil leak .......so far.

    The photo to the right is me at 11,500 feet atop Sheep Mountain, about 5 miles east of Marble, Colorado.

    On the left, the ship with the big gun is the 1914 commissioned Battleship Texas (east of Houston) where I did a lot of volunteer restoration (aka rust busting) for a lot of years.

    Sweet..great idea.,...I love the album covers. I see Jethro Tull and the Byrd's but can't make out the rest. I collected albums for many and I used to have a massive album collection going back 50 or 60 years.....but hurricane Ivan took my house when we lived on Grand Cayman. Some of the rare albums were worth up to $5,000.

    Is that an old intercom system hanging by the door? We had those in our house growing up as kids.

    Nice idea Chuck. I like the decor. Soon you will have a few more to go up. Hood hinge? RCA to DIN adapter? I did not see one photo of the Jeep tours you headed up in Colorado. Kinda surprised.

    The motorcycle is a Yamaha 400 taken in 1979.

    You are correct in spotting an old innercom box.

    The Sheep Mountain photo was a jeep tour that goes up to the highest elevation in the jeep area. Involves 34 switchbacks. An incredible view up there. There is a geocache box up there

    Great decor. I had a Yamaha 400 too. Great times climbing steep mountain trails with that bike. Thanks for the trip back in time.

    Pretty cool. I'm about to make a ceiling light out of my old 81 air induction hood scoop. Going to line it with some led strip lighting then bolt it up on the wall or ceiling.
