My new 3 car garage actually has less area per car than my old 2 car (206ft^2 vs 260ft^2). So it's pretty hard to work when there's 3 cars parked in there, but it's great to have that option when I have things cleaned up.

You should save your posts for something news worthy!

Nope. Nothing news worthy. Just a cruise around the block.

Not much new progress on the garage itself, but I did score some new tool storage chests over the weekend (early Christmas presents!). Coupons/Black Friday deals got me some good prices, plus I got 20% off employee discount because my wife's sister works at Harbor Freight.

I'm super happy to finally have a place to store my growing collection of tools! It was becoming quite a mess and taking up a lot of space. The storage items from Harbor Freight seem to be of very nice quality. I spent Friday night organizing all my tools and cleaned up my garage a bit.

PS. Car is tuned and running well.

^^That's hilarious! I've been looking at them and I was at HF yesterday for the same reason! They're nice construction, quality cabinets. I also bought the Magnum 2 piece plastic ramps, burly US made and they're super easy for transport or if you want to pull the ramps off after the car is up on them.

It's getting there. Way more organized after getting these chests. Spent close to 8 hours assembling and organizing on Friday night. Previously I just had piles of tools loose in cardboard boxes

I've had my eye on them for a while. They seem to be great quality and the prices were the best I've seen. Harbor Freight has sales all the time, but this seemed like the best one for these.

I have home made wooden ramps that are just cut up 2x10's nailed together. They work great for what they are. Very low profile and nice and solid. They are NOT very portable though (heavy), and do block nearly all side access. Great for oil changes though.

10-4 on the great prices and the value!

I also have wooden ramps I made form 3/4" plywood, it's easy to make custom plywood ramps for any height you need.

ITOD's, I use to travel with the auto show circuit, I worked for a big display manufacturer in Detroit and we would make crazy wild displays to put the cars on, you wouldn't believe some of the **** we did! Sometimes we would have to sling the car and use a large fork lift but mostly we just used plywood ramps! They're not very portable either!

Wheels and tires eventually. Weather is not ideal for putting down power no matter what tires though.
