Look for the guys doing pavers on the new homes. They paver a model homes entire front yard for people to pull in. They then remove them when they sell the model and they keep the used pavers. I had them do my 9K sq. ft. drive and lot at the shop and it was cheaper than concrete. All used pavers, so don't all match:

Man those look so awesome. I love pavers. Their strong, modular, and clean looking. Great insight on the model home deal. I never knew they ripped em out.

Beers are stocked , but are they ever really done? hahaha

Here it is with actual "car stuff" in it. It's an absolute pig sty right now as I'm still finding homes for all of my junk. Still have to bring the brake, the bead roller, and my shear in so it's gonna get interesting. The garage doors are high lifted so I've got nothing over my head but lights which are 12' high. Those are 3500k T8s which I like as they're not so blue and funky. Two post is in and works great so far. My little fab corner still needs the diamond plate for the walls to be put up, but all in due time. I sold the El Camino to a good friend and I'm just wrapping it up for him. Still need to plumb the air lines and I'm using a Max Air 1/2" flex system for that. The dryer is just sitting there and will be plumbed in a series of water trap loops as the line goes up the wall. So far, so good, Little by little it's coming together.
