Auto Hobby shops around Baltimore

So, I am going to the Coast Guard yards for two or so months this summer. i am trying to get the CJ drivable to take with me back to boston.

In the military, many bases have auto hobby shops where you can bring in your vehicle and work on it. It doesnt appear that the coast guard has one there. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is any civilian ones around there.

Thanks

Don't know about MA but in the San Diego area any active duty or retired military or certain GS can use the hobby shops on base. The one at at MCAS Miramar is great if you ever make it to San Diego.

Yeah, I checked the website. They seem like the typical military auto hobby shop.

I just hope they will let me do some rust grinding.

Ft Meade has a good one, and is closer to Baltimore. I've heard APGs is better, though.

Fort Detrick has one too up in Frederick.

A lot of guys without space just rent garages to keep their tools and projects. A few guys with Jeeps (and who used to have Jeeps) have a place in Hagerstown we go up to use for anything out of the ordinary.
