    That not a garage that a glorified man cave :Wink: get rid of tools get a old school beer fridge a few neon signs ,get the lads over for a barbecue job done.:Friends:

    Naah kidding bud if I had that garage it will grey epoxy flooring, white walls and loads of soft LED lighting. 110 DC and 230 AC sockets everywhere you can never had enough sockets . Plumb in air sockets too if your budget can stretch that far. A must two anti fatigue mats (my personal favourite) is you are standing for long periods.

    As for Honda memorabilia they are hard to get in the UK , now and again dealer closures you can get some superb pieces. I have some rare one but I will keep an eye out for you , likewise let me know if you see some gems :Wink:

    I will get some pictures up soon.

    In the US they have fantastic memorabilia some collectors have some precious Honda memorabilia which they won't part with. I have been trying to get them for year but they won't budge on price and can't come to a deal.

    I can't wait until the end of the year to move into our new house, or should I say the double garage that comes with it.
    Currently have no garage and fed up with working outside.

    I would love one of those large 16x16 Honda signs .. how much did you pay for one of those ?

    The tank I bought (I wish my welding was that good), I built the rest of the compressor though. Compressors are 1HP freezer compressors, they emit about 50dB at 1 metre. Standard compressor would probably emit around 100dB at 1 metre (about three times louder).

    I'd be over the moon if you could source me one :OTT:

    I tried getting one by first ringing a Honda garage, they told me to ring Honda UK, so I rang Honda UK and they told me to ring a Honda dealer :Crazy:


    I think the tank is 150 litre or so. The compressor is scalable though, if I find I need more clout I can get abigger tank and add a third compressor. I need to make the garden shed bigger first though, that will give me more room next to the compressor as it will mean I can put the gardening tools (lawn mower, strimmer, blower, hedge trimmer) in the shed. These are all taken up valuable space in the garage at moment.

    In fact I think I will add that to the "future projects" list, "beef up the compressor" :Wink:

    It won't take that long to take off stuff off the walls and give it a quick buzz, mind you have breeze block they are porous and will take more than 2 coats to get decent coverage.

    You have a compressor fella,spray paint the walls you will be done in 3 hours leaving time to dry.Majority of time will be masking up and covering things from the spray.

    do it you know you want to !!:Wink:
