    So we always see our rides, shining or usually building...but not so much where we do most the work. I finally after five years renting a home without a garage was able to be a homeowner once again after the market crash. Point is I finally get to have a garage and put it together the way I want it...so here's a couple of my pics.

    Sorry, guys...but it's 'knick-knacks'. (my Mom was a fierce collector of automobilia, had many pieces displayed at home...)

    Just act 'enlightened'. Better me than some nerd. :p

    You need to check out a thread called: GARAGE ART: What'd you build? It's awesome and it will give you plenty of ideas. Have fun out in that garage. Gary

    If I spread them out on a wall I could cover an 8x20 wall with the Hot wheels cars in packages that I have stashed away, No wall space for stuff in my garage except parts and tools until I get a much bigger garage.

    I don't store that kind of stuff in my shop, it gets covered in a fine black dust from all the activity. I have a dedicated room in the house where my computer is, shop is for building stuff.

    Some very cool stuff. Don't be dusting stuff off., or not for a month before painting. I have learned that a fine coat of dust protects things from overspray.,,except for the tv,,that has to be covered to paint.

    @kiwijeff ....some of that stuff looks familiar!

    Here's a couple super secret spy shots of my new garage. Still don't have most of my stuff hung up since moving, but I am slowly working on it.

    Moriarity,

    I swear your place is like the big vault at the end of "National Treasure", but with cooler stuff.
