    It is decent size. It's 24'x24'. I'm trying to come up with the money to concrete the floor in this place. That is about two grand.

    I wish I had a garage that size!! Dang! With what I am going to be doing here in the near future, I'll need space like that! I could work on two vehicles at once. The way I have it now, I will only be able to do one car at a time.

    Well, that is pretty much how my garage is now lmao. I did finally get that other side cleaned out enough to get my Camaro in there, but the side where I had a car before is now my engine building bay lol. I do have another garage though, but it's being used as storage lmao.

    Back out in the garage cleaning up yet again (or still??...). I did end up finding another 1/4 of a work bench. This is the one that is going to be going away though. I hate this thing. Only good thing is it has a metal frame with plastic top that is an inch thick. Wish I had the room for it, but where it's setting is where my table saw needs to go.

    I am missing some room because of these boxes and ford crap that showed up in here. Maybe I should set the microwave that appeared up here in the garage...

    Well, it has been over a year since the last update and over 4 years since this project started. A lot has changed, I can tell you that!

    First of all, the garage did kind of get cleaned out. The studio, banner, cameras, lights and everything else that I used for RCH and/or video production moved into my barn. That left me with a two car garage full of crap. I started cleaning it out a while back and I got the west side where I could get a car in there, and that is what I did. I pulled my Camaro in there and that is where I shot the videos on the exhaust and radio. This side of the garage however has been taken over by my tractor now...

    Bryan came down last weekend and we took on the task of cleaning out the east side of the garage. This was no easy task seeing as the tractor and the low slung mower deck hooked the carpet and just completely screwed everything up. It has been like this for about 3 years now. I just figured that I had a tractor, and if I put it in low gear, almost nothing is stopping it, especially carpet... And it shows.

    But Bryan and I started cleaning and we pulled the carpet outside. Then, I took the bucket of the tractor and spread out the dirt that the gophers dug up in my garage and tried to level the floor the best I could. I think we did a pretty good job. Once that was done we then pulled the carpet back into the garage and vacuumed the crap out of it. From there, we had two bays open and man was it nice.

    Then we pulled the S-10 (video coming soon) into the east bay, and my tractor into the west bay since I don't leave it outside for very long.

    If you guys want to see pictures, I can get some. But that is where the shop is at the moment. There was a lot more work done, but that pretty much sums up the bulk of it. Other than Bryan getting his fingers smashed in my tool box when we were moving it... But that is another story...

    Yea I was not a happy camper and it hurt like hell when that drawer closed on my fingers but its a shop and stuff like that happens. Hopefully now that we have the east side cleaned out and the truck now in the garage maybe just maybe we can get some work done.

    Yea I know you are but if there's one thing I was not looking forward to was cleaning that mess out of the bed. But I would've helped if I were there.

    No worries bro. I will be sore for a few days, but I was the one that told the girls to put the bags in the bed not even thinking the sun would completely kill that plastic. That mound of cans was in bags at one point lol. Then there were 3 camaro fenders and a camaro front facia as well as an aftermarket spoiler for, you guessed it, a camaro lol. Along with some metal from the wire I used to build my tomato cages.
