Finally finished my garage








...and finally after several months, the finishing touch!


Havent had much much time to take many pics of it. Spending all my free time cleaning it and driving it around grinning like an idiot. Me and wife wanted a toy. She wanted a mini cooper auto. I met her in the middle with an auto. Wanted to wait til the "market adjustments" were gone on the ZL1 but she wanted to wait even less than I did.

Its a 2012 rs/ss with the orange interior. I had a 98 m6 z28 and realized after my first mile in this car that they were in no way similar. Garage is all craftsman/sears shit btw.

Nice job. One of the best things in there is the access to a computer for quick reference if needed.

I love your set up ! Is it possible for liquids to seep through the floor pieces. Assuming those are the click together kind. About how much did it cost for the flooring?

Could be wrong but ?

I could be wrong but I believe RED is your favorite color?Very nice.I would love to have the racetrack in my garage.Oh well maybe some day.Just wondering how does it hold up when you turn the tires on it & when the wheels are moving side to side ? Do the tires leave black marks ?Do the tiles bunch up from the tires turning when positioning the car in the garage?Thanks & you really hit it out of the ballpark!

Sorry for the delay. I have my notification set up wrong. Yes they are the sears snap in tiles. The floor cost me $1100 for 500sqft

Thanks! The tiles get dirty every time but are easy to clean with a hose and a deck scrub brush/push broom. Oil or any kind of petrochemical can stain as plastic is essentially the same thing. I had hydraulic fluid and oil stain it. I was able to get it out with considerable elbow grease.

I peeled up about 30 tiles one day coming out in the camaro way too fast. They snapped right back in. I never seperated/peeled up tiles when repositioning the car in the garage though.

Overall budget was $3k with the cabinets. It is nice to go into your garage with your socks on.
