ma.
thanks guys

Ed, no its not race deck its a houston based company they are called modutile and their warehouse is off of westpark I went and visited with them to look at their product and they were reasonable in price and it was an easy installation(sort of) the cuts around the garage floor took me a few days, my garage floor has elevation and all weird angles and a ramp coming up with a way to tackle those was a challenge since the tiles are only designed to be placed on a flat floor, so it took way more time to do those cuts than to lay down the majority of the floor, but the product seems ok its not the most durable but it cleans up well and changing a tile is really easy so even if you damage one its not a big deal and they cost about 2 bucks a tile
Knowing you ,Im not surprised about the weird angles!
See you soon!

Nice garage. Funny how a place to park and work on your toys can make you almost as happy as the toys.:thumbsup

So a couple of month ago I realized it had been about three years since I had done anything to the cars and they were all in need of some serious Tlc so when I started working on changing out the shocks on the boss I realized that I really hadn't done much of anything in the garage either and well I didn't want to spend any time working in there bc it was so dirty and cluttered so the boss jump started my motivation to get the garage ho and running for "business once again" with that here are the before and after and I even had time to finally clean up the GT garage table as well ! So far I have done the complete fluid change on both Gts and ultima the ac repair on blue car (although that remains to be seen) swapped out the woofer to the blue car and others little tidbits around the garage u have to say it's much nicer working in a clean clutter free environment ! Next is the boss whole front end !

Looks nice. Wish I had all that space, but when I remodeled, the city wouldn't let me build a bigger garage.

I had same problem when I built my free standing garage in 2007. No detached structure bigger 900 sq ft and I live on 6 acres in the county.

yes exactly, I guess its my personality I couldn't get anything done in the old garage its like my mind is preoccupied if there is dirt and clutter around I can't concentrate until its all clean and organized. yes I know its a bit OCD but it is what it is.

the only reason I bought the house was because it was the house with the biggest garage inside the loop at my price range. some here will remember that I actually had to drive back to houston in the middle of the austin rally(wednesday) to close on the house and drive later on that evening back to the rally :)

You know your a car guy when you spend more on your garage than you do on your living room (and bedroom... and kitchen, pool, patio...). This looks slightly nicer than mine :(

What the...? is this guy following me around now? Stay out of my garage, you perv. Soroush, you better put a lock on your booze cabinet. Dr. Frank is on the prowl.

I think I see a wrench out of alignment, you're slipping.
Old garage wrench spacing tolerance 0.250 inch.
New garage wrench spacing tolerance 0.125 inch.
