Like the way you decorated/stored the wheel art on the wall!

Loonie-S, yes I followed the story on facebook it's an unfortunate coincidence, but I prefer the forum and as I was starting back up it's now time to post again.

BostonWill. Thanks it's out of necessity. I only have 8 foot walls so a standard tire rack would be a nuissance. It's getting reorganised as theres a lot of wasted space. The tire hooks are screwed in the studs but at 32 inch spacing, I have 12 of them on two rows, they are for race tires only Im going to screw some 2x8 and space them at 24 inches. I'll be able to raise 3 tires. This will give me an area for a 2x4 pegboard 2 small cabinets. That particular wall is pure race car stuff. I'll post some pictures of the layout of the garage over the weekend. It's still a work in progress, but it has reach a stage were I can do some proper work.

My 3 year old son wants to help finish the car and as already claimed it as his, but I'm not sure it will actually speed up the progress.

I like the way he thinks- drill holes in everything to remove material and make it lighter, thus faster! Dr. Porsche would have been proud! But he may want to exercise some restraint with the brake reservoirs, Reducing the amount of fluid can be counter productive. :lol:

Lightness is king.

Got my new toy today a scissor lift. Of course had to try it out with the locost.

It will be perfect for tomorrow as I'm working on the skidplate.
