Feeding your OCD, is it the camera angle or do you need to make a bit of adjustment to those exhaust tips?

Never mind the boxes on the shelf.
OCD!!!!
Exhaust looks square to me.
Probably should be black.
All good.
Best,
Mark

I have a lot of issues, but being OCD isn't one of them. My tiny 3 car garage is finally pretty tidy, but the rest of my house might qualify for an episode of "Hoarders." Almost.

The tips are pretty close- maybe they could go right 3/16 to be perfectly centered.

When you have a 3-car garage that's 20x28 (that's not a typo), literally every inch counts. Standard 12 to 14 inch deep shelves on that wall would have made it impossible to walk by the GT on that side. So I found a place that makes 8" deep wood shelving in custom sizes.

Don't be mislead by the funhouse-mirror effect of panoramic photos, this garage is only usable because every inch is used. The Miata will be moving outside so the 993 C4 can come home from storage.

Also note the total absence of ladders, rakes, lawn equipment, fertilizer, shovels, etc. That's all banished to cabinets on the screened in porch.

That's why I'm working on a 10-vehicle garage, some with 8' or 9' tall doors, some or all with extra wide doors (possibly 5 sets of 18' wide garage doors) and with at least some of them climate-controlled.

Our house will be ~2,000 SF. We have our priorities.

You're correct about 3/16 to the right on the exhaust tips.
Still should be BLACK!
Beautiful garage.
Congratulations!
Best,
Mark

You have the only type of exhaust with completely adjustable tips (left, right, up, down) so when you are bored one day....

Installed the Cooltech chargeport. Prior owner had the tender coming through the chute in the hood (worked perfectly fine) but I decided to relocate it so I didn't have the cord draped over the nose. Nice clean and easy install. And my first time taking off part of the splitter, etc. so I was able to learn a little about my "new to me" car.

Tracy and I went up to Mt Baker with a group of fellow enthusiasts to try and get some clean air. We started in Seattle where we met Jeff(140k+ mile Tungsten GT)and Bruce(Blue w/White GT and soon to be 1st NFGT Liquid Carbon owner) although they opted out of the cruise. We were the only GT amongst several Ferrari's, McLaren's, R8"s, Lambo's, Maserati, M5Comp, MB SLS. When we got to the top I could smell the tires. Only thing that beats that is 2 stroke, "in the morning". Great day! I'll debug and see what chain smoking for 300+ miles did to my air filters today.

Went for a drive with a GT40 and a T-Bird. Weather is great for cruising this time of the year.
Joined the 10,000 mile club with this drive.

Who would have thought that "Get the fever with the beaver" would be a successful tagline?
