The Bad: It's gravel
Gonna pave it one of these days, but until then the plywood seems to work well enough as long as I have enough sheets around

Costs me a pretty penny in rent and insurance each month.
But you gotta spend money to make money.
I don't have a lift though, still working with jack stands and a creeper:rolleyes:

And my "shop" is about the same as yours.
Only my "tool shed" is my passenger seat and behind the seats of my BRAT.
Or the car sitting next to my BRAT.
My dad has a shop I can use, if he's not using it

This is what it looked like before I got it.
And it still lokks like that underneath

Oh yeah, it's got propane heat in the winter and A/C in the summer.

I love how that 360 fits in there. The hoist almost takes more room!
It doesn't take up much space at all. It's a little over 4 feet wide and 10 feet long. You can store it in a garden shed if needed.

Garage is a mess from the winter so I'm digging out , organizing, selling duplicates, etc.
There is a lot more stuff than is in the pics in the garage including 6 cars. Then there is sheetmetal, radiators, bumber covers, wheels, etc outside.
Ypipes and exhaust stuff in the rafters.
I have too much stuff!
Perhaps I'll take more pics when it gets cleaned up a bit.
Assuming that I get these pics to post properly.
First one shows the tarps I use to heat a corner of the 40x40 building.
part of the workbench mess:
Some engines there are about a dozen or so here for parts:
another lift and surroundings pic:
More stuff including the new cart that isn't loaded down yet:
A small shelf of small parts. Two of many:
If this gets too big or other issues I'll change it.
Never posted pics before.
This garage was really setup to work on my antique VW's but last year I didn't get much done to them. Was too busy working on Suby's. Gonna try and balance it out a little better this year. This is a hobby after all.
Hey - it looks like it worked!
I found some early 90's Legacy wheel centers/lug covers that I'm gonna Ebay. Duplicates(and more) of mirrors, cup holders, starters, alternators, AC compressors, perhaps coil pacs, even heads if worthwhile.
Most of what I have is 95 to 99. I do have some stray 92 Legacy, 2001 25 SOHC and just a Ypipe and intake from a 2003 Baja. If you need anything and are willing to part with a few bucks drop me a PM.
I also have some excellent condition 13" hubcaps from a 88 GL-10 on Ebay right now. They were apparently stored upside down in the car. Just learning the whole Ebay thing.
I have bought and sold from members here. I'm just getting so many parts that I need to thin the heard a little. Whatever money I get goes back into the garage/tools/etc. Otherwise I just keep the stuff on the shelf incase I end up needing it.

Glad to see I'm not the only packrat around here
Hey, I resemble that remark
I have a gravel driveway, slightly off level, with a big piece of carpet in it. The carpet actually helps a lot, lol.
Also have an 8'x8' shed that is currently packed.

I've got similar stashes of parts for air-cooled VW's as well. Complete interiors, chrome bumpers, etc.
Garages and sheds are NEVER big enough.

Next purchase for the "shop",... giant tarp & sheet of plywood!
