Re: what did you do in your garage today?

Father-in-law came over on Saturday and we FINALLY got the 560SL started. Car has been down for at least two years and the damn thing idles/runs like a champ. Just need to detail it up a little,...

Re: turn a house into a garage

Very cool. Look forward to seeing how this unfolds.

Something similar has crossed my mind a few times with the house next door. It had a small fire after the tenant's miniature marijuana grow...

Re: what did you do in your garage today?

My thoughts exactly. Was thinking it would be great to get the gear and worm machined out of metal, but the time and cost just doesn't make sense. At least it is an cheap and easy fix.

Re: Small tire Sealer: Slime?

Haha...the name of the product made me a little skeptical at first but it seems to be the exact same as the Stans sealant that I've been using for years. Have a few local friends who have had good...

Re: Kitchen Cabinets In the Garage

Perhaps this was said already but the key is to be realistic...

Re: Small tire Sealer: Slime?

The regular Slime only really works for small pinholes...even then it isn't all that great imo. You need something with latex and some solids in it to plug the hole. For tubeless mountain biking...

Re: dubber's single

LOVE that grill. Do you have any more photos of it? I sourced a similar one for mine but it ended up not working due to the A/C condenser.

Re: dubber's single

The MKII can be a fickle beast. I lived with one as a daily driver for just over a year. Kind of miss it but kind of don't. Bought this thing for $500:

Re: DIY wall storage system

French cleat DIY organization system paired with some cheap/free old kitchen cabinets sourced from Craigslist would get you a long way for a little cash.

Re: what did you do in your garage today?

I traced the footprint of the chain ring piece onto the wood then used a dremel to carve it out a bit. Stuck them in there with a little wood glue. Not very structurally sound I imagine but they...
