Vinnie’s garage - Vinnie - 12-04-2017

Howdo! I thought it would be easier on the forum (members) to centralise my garage/mustang updates in one thread.

So I bought this unit last summer:

Which got filled up quickly:

But since the unit is 8 metres in height I’m going to put in an extra floor.

And today the metal arrived to support the wooden floor:

These beams are 375 cm so the floor will be high enough to have a four post lift underneath with a car on top of it.

Your new man cave looks great and the extra floor with hoist underneath is a good way to make the most of the area you have.
Will be interesting to see how you set it up when done

Hi Vinnie,

Haha, a lift is definitely coming in the future. But if I’d get a second car, it will most likely be a 73 vette, sorry ;-)

Welded all 16 plates on to the square tubes. I wanted to continue drilling holes and start putting primer on but it started snowing so much that it was smarter to try and be home before it was dark...

Yes! The first pole is up, and so are the 2nd and 3rd :-) Only 5 more to go. I managed to drill 8 holes (for four poles) without stumbling on concrete-steel but holes 9 and 10 took 2 of my drills out after hitting steel Undecided

Looking good (except the snow) and it keeps you out of trouble. Merry Christmas Vinnie!
