Re: The Garage

Checking the garage and shop this afternoon and came across this hose art. LOL! The water was off but the freezing push water out of the hose as it froze. My 1st and only picture in 2018. LOL. And the Canon G16 was the weapon of choice due to it will fit in my jacket pocket.

Re: The Garage

Been slow on the picture taking but still pretty active even with the weather.
Did have a few days of just cruisin' down the roads less traveled and checking out life in general


Did make and bottle a batch of Dew berry wine. Had to do something with the berries in the freezer.


Did do some work on the Vette in the past few days. Changing the idler pulley and tensioner for the a/c. Last week it did warm up to 70F and I put the ac on while out and about and no cold air. Oh well and when getting home left the engine running and open the hood for a look see. The compressor was not turning, it didn't have a belt on it. Yikes. So fixed that to the tune of about 140 bucks and about 4 hours labor. And all works now. LOL.

Re: The Garage

I really like the image of you looking over the top of the engine. The garage items blends together really well with your face in the middle giving the image balance.

Re: The Garage

In my detached garage/shop:
TW200
VSTROM 650
GS1000
MazdaSpeed3
Cub Cadet XT1 Mower

I could fit another bike for sure but would have to remove bikes or whatnot from the garage to be able to work on anything. Right now I have a Comfortable amount of space to work in while everything is undercover.



In my wife's garage which is part of the house:
Honda Pilot
Beer Fridge
Deep Freeze
and TOns of dog and horse stuff.

Re: The Garage

Yes, my garage is a separate building from my shop also . It's used to be my only building in the back and I've had up to 4 bikes stashed in there, having to roll all out to work on one. Now, just keep one of the bikes in there at times, but usually both bikes and the Vette in the garage and the truck sleeps outside under the shed.


The white mark on the rear tyre is a piece of the sticker on new tyres. Had just change the tire on the Bandit and no roll time yet.

Re: The Garage

3 Yamahas, 3 bikes, 1600 Sq Ft on 2 floors, 3 band saw, table saw, drill press, and walls lined with cabinets full of power tools, parts, hand tools, welders, torches, 3 Windjammers that can't find homes.
Scott's seen it up close. Nothing but rat trails through it when I finish a project.
But the wooden ski boat finally found the decendents of the O-riginal builder in Maine, so it headed home last fall!

I don't know why I hadn't thought of this earlier.... Can I use your shed for a photoshoot? Man that building has a lot of character and STUFF!

Re: The Garage

Well, a few more projects started yesterday and near finished today.
First was getting a tool chest on rollers on sale from Harbor Freight and assembling it. Instructions not that great but finally got it together and in place.

Main reason for this was to keep more tools in the garage so I didn't have to walk back and forth to the shop.







Then, getting the Corvette up and serviceable was the next concern. I had though about a small 2 post lift and to get something portable and low lift since my garage is only 10 ft high, I changed my mind after seeing some vids on the Quick Jack system. So , bought one of them and 2 boxed came in 2 days ago and the 3rd box yesterday.
After completing the tool chest project this morning I tackled that project. Promise it was much much easier than the tool box project.







So now, need to go to the store and get 3 qts of hyd fluid to complete and test.

Re: The Garage

Just curious what the lift height and capacity is on that quick jack system, and how much did it set you back overall?

Re: The Garage

I went with the 3500 system as it was all I needed. 1125 bucks to my door. Here's the web site on them with all the dimensions.

Re: The Garage

Since putting the nose back on the car after repairing so damage, I had been wanting to smooth the paint out for a couple light runs and some overspray. But, since it's acquired some rock chips , decided next time I sand it down, I'll just do a better paint job. So, decide to add a sticker to the nose just for the heck of it. My original broke when taking it off and not gonna pay 50-75 bucks for a replacement.

Re: The Garage

Had a quest to finish this morning so me and my pardner got in the car.


Then took off going out of town to get 9 more miles on my 03 Vette coupe so we would have this across the ometer


Then returning home to wash and vacuum the car, clean the garage and driveway.

Finding a large can to gray paint and looking at the old beat up KLR, decided it was time to leave the green behind and start going gray with it.



Might take the rest of the week but we'll get it mostly gray.
