Default Garage Upgrade

After roughly 5 years of attempting to work on my Camaro in my small 1 car garage, I decided to branch out and rent some space.

I'm splitting the cost with a friend, and our rough plan is to get started working on our cars and acquire tools along the way.

Tools we have so far:
-80 Gal Air compressor
-Miller 211 Welder
-very entry level drill press
-very entry level band saw
-basic tools that we have both acquired over the years

Things we are looking to find in the near future:
-bead roller
-metal brake
-TIG
-English wheel (may build)
-Fab Table (will build)



putting up an mezzanine



Air Compressor up top and out of the way



plenty of room for us to work....for now I'm sure it will fill up quickly

This is a great idea. Just having a space to put the car on a lift and work on it would be worth it. Split the cost with other like minded friends. Turn it into a hangout spot for car guys to talk and work on their cars.

it has been nice, and having a buddy to split the cost definitely helps. We both label our tools and split cost where we need to. like the electric install today.



getting going on the car again!
