We just purchased two new stores for work and i have been slammed with getting them up and running. I figured... this would be a great time to tear a part the garage and re do it! LOL... Damn i get too many things going at once...

Any way, here is a current shot. I wont even show inside the house. You can barely walk in there. Julie is not so happy but i have been keeping her busy with an ipad that she thinks i got her for a gift... ha (insert evil laugh)

I hope to have this completed by this weekend... well, there i go again :roll:

Well, this is what it used to look like years back. And at this time, NOTHING was in the house or storage.

so with all that being said... i am trying to get it kinda like how it used to look BUT with most of the stuff still in there. I am making the third car garage area ALL storage for cars, with no cabinets. Then i am adding cabinets into the main garage and will have a mini machine shop on one side and a work table on the other. Then we will have a lounge in the middle to hang out and watch tv and look at cars. Its gonna be a busy weekend. I am leaving right now to do some work at one of the new stores and then i am going to hit home depot on the way back and get some stuff and get back to work.

Mike If you needed help I could have drove up and assisted in the remodel!!! This way when a car comes up for sale I'm on top of the list :D or when the other projects get done (skellenger rears, PBS rears, wheels) or anything else I'm first... :wink:

Kevin, That miller body is only one of two bodies out there. its in the QRS literature. It was a car he was going to build but there was not enough interest at the time. Its not wicked pretty, but it is a cool piece. Neat to have something that was originally in literature.

Igg, i knew that if i let you help that it would just be a tease. kinda like letting a kid in a candy store and telling him that he cant eat anything...

Here is todays progress...

I like the fact that there's now a Q-Scale "lounge" area... It'll make the QSL videos more like a talk show.


"Now, let's bring out our next guest..."
