    Thanks. Rolling toolboxes are the best. I also have one of those silicone tool trays to put on the engine to hold stuff. really helps to keep from dropping things.

    Whoa! Looks like a professional shop! Hmm, maybe if I ask my wife to park on the driveway it would give me a space that looks a little more open like that.

    Here's how I keep my screw drivers in the garage. Definitely not fancy. Or expensive. Just functional. Piece of wood with a bunch of evenly spaced out holes drilled in it and then screwed into the studs with a couple of L brackets. Makes good use of a small amount of space and they are always right there where I need them, when I need them.

    That is great! Looks so clean! Love the flooring. Any ideas on wall hangings, decorations?

    Thanks. My entire neighborhood is jealous of the floor - it truly is amazing and I'm beyond happy with it. I have some laminated framed vintage 1950's auto advertisements I'm hanging as well as some other ideas in the pipeline including was water-jet cut stainless DMC letters to go somewhere. I like the clean minimalist look so the walls will not be loaded with stuff.

    My VIN:    10757 1st place Concourse 1998

    I have a large workbench with a big vise mounted to it. I keep my toolboxes small enough and light enough that they can be easily carried so I can do work "mobile". When they are home they sit on the bench. Tools are segregated according to the size of the job and type of work. I also have a 3 car garage and a lift. 11 feet is just enough height for low cars. Among the things to get are heat, good lighting, plenty of outlets, 220 electric for the lift and welder, door bumpers on the walls so you don't hurt the doors, wheel stops so you know where to stop with the car, an air compressor for tires, and air tools, a sink to wash up in, and don't get an epoxy floor. It scratches up way too easily. I did it and now I am sorry. Just get the floor sealed, no color unless you don't care what it costs and you get terrazzo (very expensive!). Insulated garage doors and a high lift door with a jackshaft opener so you can fit the lift in and not hit the door. I painted the walls and ceiling gloss white. On the walls there is a black 2" stripe at 5 feet and from the stripe to the floor is a semi-gloss light grey. Reflects light well and is easy to clean. I have a bunch of 8' 2 and 4 bulb fluorescent lights and I added lights to the underside of the lift for lighting underneath. A lockbox for keys to all of the vehicles. A mobile cart with all of the cleaning and detailing supplies. A central vacuum with a long hose. A Master Blaster to dry the cars when you wash them. A pressure washer to blast the dirt and cover it with foam to clean them. A retractable reel for the water hose and the air hose. A nice large clock so you know when to stop for dinner. A radio is nice and a phone you can reach. A BIG fire extinguisher. Some of the accessories you will need are, jackstands, floor jack, shelving, fender covers and old towels. Several rechargeable LED magnetic lights. No one starts out with all of this stuff, you usually accumulate it over the years as you need it. Then there is the trailer so you can take the car long distances or bring back "dead" ones to work on. It needs a bunch of it's own stuff like winches, straps, etc. Having a nice place to work is great. A clean, well organized place is so nice to work in. Beats working on the ground outside in the weather in the dark! I am getting too old for that!

    Timeless, what kind of floor is that and who did it? I did epoxy and it gets all scratched up. I went with the light grey with the speckles. They grind the concrete and then put one coat of grey with the speckles and then a clear over it.
