Detailing the garage for the beast

Who's cleaning up and thinking of ideas to show off
their camaro in the garage!!! I'm going for the checker board pattern (black & white) on the floors, painting the walls a bright white, new lights and thinking of doing a nice chevy bowtie on the wall!!
Everything is coming off the walls, at least on the camaro's side!!(nothing falling on this car) I think this would create a nice
little "home" for her. Anyone else doing something similar or any ideas??

I just bought a storage barn from home depot to put in the back yard so I can get all my crap out of the garage. I just moved to a bigger house a couple months ago, so my garage is still packed with boxes and junk. I'll do some painting once I get the junk out.

Well.......I was thinking that I was going to invest in a 4 post lift earlier this year, but talked myself out of it. I still ran a new 100A service into the garage to provide some additional power since my builder only put 1 duplex in the whole thing. I also wanted to get a storage building to get all of my stuff out of the garage. I'm enjoying having everything out just as much as I would the lift. Besides, my mechanic said I could use his whenever I wanted....so it's a win-win.

I decided to do the whole painting thing while everything was out. Even put a fresh coat on the ceiling. Oh, and the conduit too. As soon as the parking mats stretch out and get the wrinkles out, I've got one more of them that I will be cutting in half to add another layer of protection against any fluids and such.

Anyway, here's some pics of what I did to give my new Camaro a nice place to call home along side her older sister........next year this time I'll be trying to decide which one to take out. Decisions, decisions.

I wish I had a 3-car or even 2.5 car garage. My 1.5 barely fits a car and all the crap for the lawn, tools, etc. Oh well, next house maybe, until then, I'll just make sure things hanging are secured VERY well.

Thanks.....everytime I put a fresh coat of Zymol on it, I can't wait to order the new one in black......then I drive it somewhere and think, I'm never getting another black car......but, that's what they make quick detailer for, right?

Love that garage!!! LOVE IT! That's got me thinking.....

There's so many things I could do w/ this.....I was thinking the grey, flaked floor. Or, maybe a grey high grade cloth type. I really need to redo the walls. And, I'd like to do the Home Depot storage unit out in the back too, but I really like what space I have in the back yard already. I'd hate to take that away even more. right now, everything is hanging off the ceiling.

We'll see when the time comes.

Yeah.....well, you gotta have surround sound when you're watching Transformers and waxing the car at the same time. Or having a sandwich at the table. It's just a 22" computer monitor that had component inputs.

And thanks TAG......and if you decide to go with a cloth for your flooring, I suggest something similar to what I used. It's by Drymate and Sportsman's Guide online has it the cheapest of anyone. I was gonna paint, but after I read all the different requirements for prep, I figured this would be easier. Plus, I can take this with me if I move.

Glad you guys like my choices. Looking forward to seeing what some of you decide to do.

Unfortunately I don't have a garage. Unless I get married I'm stuck in the barracks. So I'm debating on purchasing my car in Missouri and just driving it when I go home on leave, until I get out. That way I can have it in a climate controlled garage and don't have to put a car cover on it and park it in a crowed lot all the time...

Hopefully built in time to welcome home the Camaro!

i gotta paint my garage floor and repaint the walls. i think im going with a dark charcoal floor and white walls with a red accent wall in the rear of the garage. i already have a tv and cabinets for the detail supplies. i think im going to get a piece of plexi glass and put it in front of my camaro in the garage so i can keep the door open and people can see it and if it rains , it wont get wet.oh yeah and im renting a giant spot light for the night i get it. im having a huge party the day it comes in. you are all invited.
