I know the feeling all too well. If the kids leave their damn bikes out one more time on my side of the garage, their scooters, their toys, all their crap.....UGH I'm getting sick of it...

Got the car back from the dealership today. Drivers seat heater is fixed along with the motor. Ancira is simply bad ass.... Won't go anywhere else.

In mod news, just for Pete....I installed a new GM ice blue dome light. Yep. More LED's.

I keep a boat anchor in my trunk. I like to handicap myself.

Like the automatic transmission doesn't do that enough already...

Don't forget about wheels and tires as a handicap.

That's extra weight to keep the back from sliding out.

(yeah....that box and speaker are pretty damn heavy....)

A several second handicap...with as bald as they all are....and as narrow. Been waiting since Nov for freaking wheels... Hopefully Glen gets these things asap. I heard this week. Was excited since I was going to be able to use them for this Sundays autocross. Still no word, though....

And in other news, I added another 8hp to my car yesterday when I installed HID's. They worked out pretty nice. I've got to figure out why the gap in the light....might need a new bezel....damnit. I don't suggest doing it the way I did it. Too damn expensive. HID's, new light holders (non-RS), and the price was up there.

But it turned out nice.

Not much new. Still waiting on wheels. Glen says maybe another three weeks. :(

Planning on getting the car Opti Coated. Going to try to work that out this Monday. Might wait till the wheels come in so I can get those done along with the rest of the car.

Still need to fix one of my broken camber plate bolts. Apparently, if you turn them too hard, they break. Go figure.

Doing garage work. Complete top to bottom remodel/paint on the garage. Surprised myself....4 days of painting and rearranging. New shelves, lights, the whole 9 yards. Lots and lots of work. The wife and kids helped out too (painting). Coming along great. Gonna do a little garage build thread.

Out of curiosity Doug, have you gotten a quote on opti coating the whole car?

Not yet. But I know it's going to be upwards of 6 to 7 hundred for the swirl remover and then opti on the entire car (wheels, calipers, etc)

Probably worth it though - never having to worry about swirls and whatnot.

Doooooooiiiiiiiitttt!!! I'm seriously challenged in regards to garage organization, and mine needs a thorough cleaning before the SS arrives. I got a new battery in my Formula yesterday so now I can move it out of the garage and wash it. Shelves need organizing, junk that's no longer needed must go...etc.

Oh, I got rid of a lot of stuff. Going to build a little shed out back for the lawn stuff too...clean that out and make more room. It's been a b***h. I want to get in there now and just get it done, but I'm worn out. Needs to get done though. I have a ton of pix I'm going to put in there. Not too many before pix, but lots of during..lol.

The only thing that needs to be done that I don't want to do? Acid wash and paint the floor with that gray coating. Bla....another $107 for the mix and paint.

EDIT: Maybe I could do the piece together mats?? Wonder what that would run...

The piece together mats cost more. I did the epoxy coating on my garage floor and it's a breeze, though, I already had a clean concrete surface so I didn't have to do the acid etching.

It's still really simple, though. I recommend getting a paint pan that is sturdy. I bought the cheapest flimsy plastic one from Home Depot and I immediately regretted it...

Cool. My garage floor is filthy....from oil to paint, epoxy, well....tons of stuff on the floor I'm going to have to pull off. The cool thing about the kit that I got is that it's got a lifetime guarantee. Says on the box that if it ever starts to peel up, you can call them with the serial number on the box and they'll give you a refund. Not bad... I hear the floors like to crack under tires if the floor is wet (like you pull in after a rain repeatedly). Either way, that'll be the next project. The kit is sitting in the garage. And I have to go back to HD anyway to get a new air compressor hose. Seems I rolled the hose up on the motor and the heat burned a hole in the 50ft extra hose I got. I'll pick up another pan then.

Rust-Oleum? That's the one I got - Gray epoxy with the blue/white/black paint flakes.

It looks great, I just have to finish at some point by completing the trim of the garage floor (the part of the concrete that comes up about 2 inches all the way around the garage walls). I didn't have any paint brushes when I did the floor so the sides will get done eventually.

Just remember, you can't walk on it for 24-ish hours and you shouldn't put any cars on it for about 3 days.
