      Agreed. I love the glass windows on the doors. Mine are solid and I am always adding LED for more light. Natural light is just so much nicer.

      Also - nice looking 20th!

      Thanks! Unfortunately it's only the back door on the third bay that's full glass. It leads out to the pool area. Also, little better pic of the 20th.

      Ditto! I feel like I was led in.

      Also nice clean 20th GA_wagoneer. There aren't many of us left around.

      After a year of ownership, I finally! have my lift installed and man was it a proud moment seeing that jetta go up in the air the first time. Now I need to redo the floors! and get all these jetta parts installed so I can get them off the floor of my garage.

      people always think about the ceiling, but not always the floor. make sure your concrete in that bay can handle the installation of a lift.

      finally moved my garage computer... to the garage. it's an old Lenovo T420 that I upgraded with an SSD and more ram. it's basically only used as a VCDS machine, but if I get the keys dirty/oily it's not a big deal. I also plan to install a TV above the toolbox after seeing my coworkers garage with a lift, A/C, and a TV.

      I poured the last 14 feet at 8 inches thick so I didn't have to aim for a footing. Definitely an overlooked item though. Good looking out

      used a coworkers lift and noticed he had a TV in his garage, so of course I needed one. grabbed a 43" Samsung 4k tv at Best Buy for $280 and mounted it in the garage. I watched the Bruins game in the garage on Thursday.

      I'll likely bring it in during the winter and get a cover for it. also still need to relocate the opener control, but will also be installing a new one soon, so not too worried.

      I fee like I'm only halfway done with my renovation but wanted to share some updates.

      I have this little nook that I initially emptied and removed the shelves.



      Sanded everything, filled in the holes, sanded some more, and then removed 40-year-old dirt, nails, & bugs from the gap between the floor and drywall. Needed to make room, see.



      Got some artificial grass from HD.



      With a 30" width, I'm limited on shelves so ended up with a plastic one (also from HD), painted the posts for some contrast and to match the toolbox, and here we are. Going to add more shelving later.





      I had grand plans of extending power via conduit here (instead of the multiple extension cords the POs were using), but ultimately realized that's a lot of work for an area that doesn't need light all that often. So I simplified it with a motion sensor light.



      Also had some water leaks that I temporarily fixed using a combination of new copper pipe, Sharkbite fittings, and PEX tubing.







      During the 2020 remodel, I'm going to bite the bullet and replace all the copper pipe with PEX.

      Just an idea...

      How far does the stairwell cubby jut out into the garage? And how much space is there between the end of the stairwell walls and the other side of the garage?

      I think it'd be cool if you built a set of runners in there that holds your toolbox and workbench. So when you want to work on something, you just pull it out. When you're done, slide it back in. Slide out, slide in. In and out. in and out.

      Thought about that but it's too deep to only use it to pull out my toolbox. Fortunately I have enough room on the side where I can still easily open the car door.

      I started working on the plans for a detached garage a little over a year ago, and broke ground in May.

      I had a GC do the concrete & structure, hired a contractor to do the insulation, and have done most everything else myself.

      It's a 26x26x12.5 with HVAC and a lift. Still a work in progress, but it beats the hell out of working in the driveway.

      April:



      Saturday:



      Obligatory shot with my dad's 72 out front.



      As it sits this evening. I just got the pallet racking up, and most of the stuff moved in from the basement workshop. Next up is to build a workbench. Then I'll get back to finishing the mud & painting it in spring.

      my buddy offered me his old max jax mx6 lift (installed less than a year ago and maybe used 20 times) for $1500 and i am seriously tempted as i have a small garage with low ceilings but have some big jobs i want to do like dropping the driveline out of my corvair and the corvette needs the whole torque tube and trans dropped which a lift would help tremendously. he even offered to do a payment plan for me. have decided yes or no yet.

      also installed some LED bulbs which made a world of a difference and a TV which is so nice to have.

      tv with soundbar. just hooked up to internet as i dont have cable (You can kinda see how piss poor the old lighting was)

      and a 50ft hose reel which works perfect for airing up tires in the garage and cars in front of the garage. if i need to go any further i have a additional 50ft hose that i can hook up to.

      I would look into buying one of those... except that my garage isn't level. It has a definite downward slope going out the door. Seems like that would make for a bad idea, haha.

      pretty positive i have convinced myself that this is something i need talked to my dad about doing the concrete work in the garage and he said it shouldnt be any sort of problem. best part is my buddy is fine with doing a payment plan where i do $500 down and min $100/month which works out great for my drifting budget

      didnt even think about that. i dont think my garage is the most level thing in the world but after lifting my fair share of sketchy/heavy vehicles on bigger lifts and those vehicles not being the most level i would be to worried. unless it some sort of crazy angle

      Check out the install documentation. It'll likely come with shims and a max shim height allowable to get it level. Most garages have slopes, and even flat ones (like mine) sometimes need a little shimming to get the columns totally plumb.

      As you know, there is a lot of wasted space. Could you remove the drywall in certain areas and build recessed shelving to hold things like spray paint or other small objects? That would increase the function of the space drastically.

      Also, is there anything you could store/set up behind the shelves that are there? A compressor or some such with plumbing through the wall comes to mind, but there may be other things, too.

      Mine isn't even close to level. I bet it's sloped a good 7 degrees or more. I'll have to measure when I get a chance. Either way, it's definitely more than the 3 degrees that the maxjax allows.

      I got mine for 1000, and it definitely is worlds better than jackstands. I have every piece of suspension currently removed from my mk2 (subframe, rear beam, etc) and 100% would not have even bothered if I was attempting it on the floor. Also I need to get around to mounting up my hose wheel so it can stop being clamped in my bench vice

      If the floor is thick enough, you could grind the pads under the lift flat and level, or cut out and pour new footers.

      Not much room in the walls as there's a stairwell on the right and the bottom of my bedroom on the left.

      I'm actually gonna revert to the original setup of just having wooden shelves on brackets against the back wall as the plastic HD setup isn't very sturdy and can't handle the weight.

      Then I plan on adding more shelving along the length of the nook (just on the left side) with narrow shelves for small items, then a wider wire frame one higher up for additional storage.

      No outlet back there so can't place the compressor without running power which I'm trying to avoid.

      Just need to get the M5 sold so I can get back to it!
