Thanks. The NSX is my daily right now. Two totally different driving experiences.

I've had a lot of seat time in NA1 & NA2 NSX's, definitely different experiences. New one seems quite the value used as well.

For the record, I hate all of you...

But it’s all in a good way. I am adult enough to know “garage envy” when it sets in and takes over, lol.

In all seriousness, awesome set-up’s everyone! Bravo!!!

Cheers

After 30 years of fixing other people's cars I had lost interest but a few years ago I retired and moved to the country and needed something to do and I don't golf so I may have went a bit overboard (at least that's what my wife says) but I have 8 other cars not in the pictures yet.
The lighted area with the wall in the background is my almost finished paint booth I'm building. I've done everything myself except the erection of the steel but I bought bulk steel and had it cut and welded on site which saved me a ton over buying a prefab building. Plus it has a couch area with a 60" TV for napping.

Far too small but I've got a lot of stuff crammed in there. First world problems when you need to park your RS4 outside I guess, I need a lift in there.

Had a visitor this week. MY '79 is off at the paint shop for a few months so my buddies GT3RS with Weissach package was here for 5 days. He didn't have time to drive it before a track event next weekend so asked me to put some break in miles on it for him. He dropped it off with 171 miles on Monday. I returned it to him today with 1000 miles even. It was a heck of a fun week to say the least!

I'm running out of garage space so just built a 200-sq.ft Tough Shed to help with clutter

Here’s mine. It’s not the garage you lust after, but it’s what I’ve got at the moment. I just got the car a month ago. On the plus side, it only cost $250 and took a few hours to put up. Future plans include something more substantial...

^^^ I know this looks appealing to someone without a garage, but that this is a moister trap from hell. I had one for a year when I was "between garages" and the humidity that comes out of the ground was unreal.

That's a good point. Might be worth putting down some vapor barrier plastic sheeting on the ground and leave some slits open for ventilation.

Or make it into a “carcoon”

Make it air-tight , and put a portable air conditioner in there set to temp and dehumidify .
One small sealed hole for drain another for power , and a 4” for exhaust and it’s good to go .

Much easier to make an isolated chamber inside a room , but still relatively easy to homebuild and achieve outside .

https://www.carcoon.com/

I looked at airflow and relative humidity in my garage ,and I have no need to build it into a chamber .
I sanded to bare metal on a 73 about 4-5 years ago and it still hasn’t oxidized.

Air-flow and lack of humidity is the key .

Silica gel will help too , but one must be wary of going TOO dry ..

Or possibly even just a tarp above the car, maybe suspended from the fence, but open on the sides and sloped to help with precipitation runoff. Hell, even your existing "garage" would be ok if you opened up a lot of the sides, though I'd still be concerned that the peaked roof would hold in humidity. To deal with ground moisture, cover it with a sheet of heavy poly.

Maybe a tarp on the ground, with some of the "walls" ventilated some.
