Thanks, guys.

maruscmn -- that's a pretty nice setup. The more room the better.

I worked in parking lots, alleys and driveways for years. And then I had the typical garage so stuffed with household crap that I couldn't even think about putting a car in it. What I have now took some time and work, up front, but I appreciated it every day. I wish I'd done it years ago.

Here's mine for now. I will be building a shop in the next couple of years.

Appreciate it! I would just like to know how you were able to find any deals on your cabinets! It seems as though all of the GJ guys just sweep them up.

I also need a better air supply. p0lar has the setup I want.

And there's a video where you get to see the lift in use:

And very occasionally my little E90 gets to stay there:

Saw that video a while back, awesome setup (and car)

Crap. Jack's here. It's like showing up to a singles bar and George Clooney and Matt Damon are already there. No chance at all to impress anyone. :face palm:

I have a few things in my garage, though oddly no pics of my tools. It underwent a huge transformation last April and I haven't looked back since.

Home built, wall hung cabinets with sliding doors and reinforced shelves.

[IMG][/IMG]

Race Deck Flooring going in. Color appropriate for the cars that are parked on it.

[IMG][/IMG]

Lista Cabinets with Stainless Steel Workbench top. Home refurbished Wilton Vise on workbench. Upper home built cabinets along with some left over metal cabinets I had previously.



Older home refurbished Reed vise on mobile Craftsman workbench (before tire rack mod).

[IMG][/IMG]

Tire rack mod to Craftsman workbench

[IMG][/IMG]

Fuzzy picture of appropriate wall "art" and somewhat rare license plate…

[IMG][/IMG]
Before pic of Wilton

[IMG][/IMG]

After pic of Wilton, although I now have the appropriate base clamping hardware

[IMG][/IMG]

All of my wall cabinets and Lista cabinets are full. I probably (ha!) need to throw some junk out, but I'm a packrat. Hope you enjoyed the show!
