I'm thinkin you need more power tools. I have a few days off this week maybe I can bring over a circular saw and a screw gun. We could probably finish hanging all the peg board in an hour or so.

We've Come a Long Way, Baby!

Painted the walls today...

Started off with taping off a "PORSCHE" logo across the divider wall, where there was the most open room:



First coat down:

Now, you can barely tell from the pictures, but, well, whoever built the garage was a moron and/or incompetant. The beams are not only uneven, but some stick out further than others, creating an subtle-yet-interesting "wave" effect on the wall

After the paint dried, I pulled off the tape. I plan on painting in the letters with bright red paint sometime soon...





The framed photo in that picture was taken on the very first day that I bought my car, in May 2000.

On the other wall, I put the obligatory LE MANS poster...

These are some posters I bought from eBay. They are mosaic prints - you know, those pictures made up of smaller images. I will be framing them and putting them up on the wall opposite the "PORSCHE" logo







So I will be hanging those, putting up some shelving, and building a workbench in the near future... but first I need to buy a new spring for my garage door - it seems that while I was at work (with the Porsche, thank god), one of the two rusty old springs snapped. The garage door is a little more difficult to open now

Oh well. At least nobody was hurt and no cars were scratched!

While I'm at it, I might as well show you what else is going up out there:

I'm also going to but these two metal gas station signs - Porsche and Corvette - out there once I can find something to put in its place.



I also have these little framed pictures that I bought at the Big E when I was about 12:



I won this poster from an eBay auction. It's on its way... I've kinda always wanted this poster:



Anyhow, that's it for now. I will post more pics after I get those hung and paint in the "PORSCHE" logo.

I'm not bored with it. I am a little bit jealous though.

Sweet! I wish I had the motivation to make my garage look a little nicer. I keep buying crap to fill it up instead of making it nice. I did get lots of light though.
