This is the biggest reason why Pugsley isn’t sitting on its new axles with an LS under the hood. A significant motivation for my buying a new house was gaining room for a shop, and a significant reason for picking the house we did was that this existing skeleton for a building was already present. The one tradeoff is that the house’s existing garage is pretty inadequate for anything other than parking a couple of cars. As it turns out, obtaining the seemingly very simple permits to legally enclose the already fully permitted frame takes in excess of nine months and is equal parts infuriating and expensive. The world needs many things, but more government is not one of them. Erecting a building around a blown-apart Scout just wouldn’t be ideal or even practical, hence the current state of limbo.
