    Just bought a new couch for the garage. Saw this at the stir and thought it was perfect. A little pricey tho but the led blue lights sold it for me.

    That is a beautiful set of couches and love the blue led also.:2tu: Now you need a pool table , 80inch led tv and a bar to go with the couches.

    Well, my pictures were back on page 12 -- and I still don't have a Viper. But my garage (and car) just got a video made about them -- so I'm kind of psyched. And I thought that maybe some of the people who enjoyed the garage pictures I posted might like to see the goofy floor lift in action. The web site is called Petrolicious, and if you've got nine minutes free, click on the image below to watch the video.

    And let me know what you think.

    Just watched whole vid - really well done!! Kinda makes me want to buy a 911. Almost. I like the 'old school' color in the garage too. But do you need a particularly flat bottom on the car to use that lift? I figure many cars would be crushing exhaust and tranny components.

    Thanks. Yeah, I did the lift that way because I cold get away with it with my 911. I've used it to lift up my Jeep and BMW, and I use blocks to support the frame with those. It still works, but if I was working on those cars regularly, I'd want a more conventional automotive lift.

    What are you folks using for heat and air? Are you using an electric heater that hangs/mounts up toward the ceiling or something like gas? What about AC, conventional AC unit or window mount?

    I just completed a 900 square foot 2nd garage/shop and finished the floor with UCoatIt and the optional gloss finish. I'm getting ready to insulate and add drywall hopefully shortly but was curious about heat and air.

    I just installed a Mitsubishi Split-Air system in mine. I found the box
    heater and window a/c added about $500/y to my already expensive
    electrical bill. I am also heating the apartment above the garage, so
    keep that in mind.

    The split system works like a traditional central air unit except its very
    small. Unit sits outside and a regisiter is mounted on the wall. I have
    a very effective a/c unit, heater, fan, and dehumidifer and the one unit
    works both floors equally. Be warned, its pricey - but I wouldnt go with
    anything else from here on out...

    Here's my progression/story :)

    I go for the more simplistic look, plus on a budget. This is your regular daily use 2 car garage.


    Cleared out the left half of the garage to prep for the arrival of the car. This used to be completely full of junk from my remodeling; to the point of touching the car on the right.

    [​IMG]


    Car is here [and dirty] (original garage light as well)

    [​IMG]


    Installing 10 LED 6" recessed lights

    [​IMG]


    Lighting effect achieved (light glistening off the cars like a showroom)

    [​IMG]


    New cabinets

    [​IMG]


    Prepping the floor for epoxy

    [​IMG]


    More prep

    [​IMG]


    2 coats of Rustoleum Epoxyshield

    [​IMG]


    Starting the 2 coats of Epoxyshield clear coat (definitely much better with it)

    continued...


    Floor finished. Also added three additional outlets in the garage; there was only ONE outlet on the right hand side, so I added one near the doors, one on the left side, and one near the front.

    [​IMG]


    Painted the walls, trim, and concrete foundation (concrete was important, the original concrete didn't look nice and this finished it off quite nice)

    [​IMG]


    Getting there

    [​IMG]


    I couldn't decide between epoxy and Racedeck, so I went ahead and did both. Racedeck over by the future cabinet work area, epoxy for the cars. Also added crown molding all the way around.

    Cabinets up

    [​IMG]


    Stuff getting in place

    [​IMG]


    Custom workbench with butcher block top and space for stuff below

    Car is still dirty....

    [​IMG]


    Only thing I really have left to do is cover up the water heater, and place this puzzle I framed up on the wall.

    Simple average ordinary garage (with GTS blue matched epoxy floor) but in it is my '05 SRT10 Ram with Paxton and custom Air/Water road race cooler set up. My '96 Heffner Twin Turbo GTS with a side of NOS and while it does not fit in the garage, my '12 Ram Limited 3500 with Carli 3.0 Dominator suspension and 37" Toyos...

    Yvette had the SRT8 Jeep out and about...

    Garage may not be pretty but I LOVE the contents!

    I'm using a through the wall unit that says it will handle a 1200 sqft apartment and I have a 600 sqft garage. It's a heat pump, electric heat, air conditioner, fan, and dehumidifier. It was $1000. Works perfectly.
