        There's always an easier way and I'd never figure I was cheating if I can find one. Bob.

          Yes I agree this is not cheating. The older you get the smarter you work.

          Is it the picture or is the building dimly lit?

            My place isn't real bright especially for photographs. I really do need another light there but there are lights on stands and another couple of overheads that were not on.

                  The older you get, the more you THINK about how to make the job easier.

                  When you get my age, you think a LOT.

                    Get a couple T5 florescent fixtures... bright as **** and much easier on the power bill than metal halides... I can't even remember the last building I built that got halide or mercury vapor bulbs installed....

                      Last couple lowboys I did, just flipped the whole thing over. Quite a bit of replacing some suspension components, building up other parts, decided it was easier to do looking down rather than looking up. Helps a lot if you have a big forklift, loader, or crane sitting around.
                      Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

                          I'm jealous. However, I think like you do. I like to make the job easier to work on, also.
