Thread: Show your Garage

    Show your Garage

    I'm in the process of building a new home and am interested in what tricks members have added to their garages.

    Any great cabinet, flooring, lighting or lift system idea would be appreciated.

    Make it tall enough for a lift. Nothing better than a lift. Unless you never wrench on your car. The next garage I build will have one for sure.

    I have an irrational love for my 36-year-old 911 -- and also an irrational fondness for my 83-year-old Los Angeles garage. The one part of it that other guys might like to copy is the flooring, which was really cheap (59 cents a square foot), really easy to keep clean, and nice enough to walk on barefoot. It's just Home Depot ceramic tile, which I installed in a long weekend. For my old slab, epoxy was a longshot (no moisture barrier), and I don't like the way racedeck tiles have to be pulled up so you can clean underneath if you spill oil on them. The ceramic tile surface is hard enough that I've done painting in the place and been able to easily razor-blade the spots off.

    This is the opposite of new construction. In fact, it's deliberately 'vintage.'

    The tile weekend. You should have seen my poor 1985 Jeep sagging under the weight of the tiles -- they weighed almost as much as my 911.

    Jack that looks like a living room with a garage door.
    Any chance you'll volunteer to instruct at Ray's SOW track day?
    Here's my lift sunk in a shallow pit.
    When there is nothing left to do on the real cars the 135 foot 8 lane slot car track helps time pass between track days.
