Garage Make-Over

Post by 63Falconconvert on October 2nd 2010, 12:37 pm

Well we have been in our new house now for 10 months now that I'm finished remodeling the entire house, building a shed, swingset and sandbox not it's time to set up the garage. I have a lot of automobilia collectables that I have gathered over the years, my wife calls it junk, I call it car stuff, but I wanted a place to display all of my "junk" thats not allowed in the house. Now that the garage is ready I can start on the Falcon.

Thanks....my neighbors think I'm a little weird but what car guy isn't....The one good thing is that I know where everything is at and I'm not tripping over parts and junk anymore.
I have started doing rust repair/body work on the Falcon (which I need to start posting pics of) getting ready to give it a Roll job. So the garage is getting dirty and my tools are getting used again. I picked up a new Plasma cutter so thats been a fun toy to use when cutting sheet metal.

Does the plasma cutter give a good weldable edge or do both pieces need to be dressed first?

Mike,
The unit I have is a small Lincoln 110V. I can cut up to 3/8 on a single pass. When I cut sheet metal I dial it down to 15 amps and it will make a fairly clean cut. To answer your question, yes you still need to dress it before welding, but once you get the hang of it you can make nice cut with very little dressing.

Did you post this make-over on Garage Journal? I'm sure your work would be well received there.

You should be able to get it grandfathered in or at least call it a remodel, especially since there already was one there before and there was a concrete floor.

its kinda the same here - its a tradition to put your outbuildings on your property line. Mine was built in 1895. Its got a foundation and everything. The roof is caving in and I wanted to rebuild it. Can't do it.. it won't meet the new setback requirements. Not only can I not replace it with a new building, I can't even repair the old one!

Nice looking garage!!! Great transformation. I joined the site to see about painting by using a roller. I've been reading through a few of your threads this morning then ran across this one. I was going to give you an invite over to garagejournal.com but see you are already a member over there. Small world!!! Anyways, great job on your transformation. Now I hafta search out the rest of the site for pointers on painting my 'fridge. Lol!!!

I actually call them Home Dips--t. And bLowes is a good slam too. I'll usually try to go to Lowes over Home Depot.

Nice garage. One day, one day... My house is 100 years old, and had a detached garage, but from what I see on the county auditor's site, it was torn down back in '91. Using this site; http://www.historicaerials.com/ I can see that the garage was there in 1932, and still standing in 1968.

I do wish the garage was bigger and not attached to the house..oh and maybe a lift, a paint booth, extra bays for the boys to bring there cars over to work on, a 52" TV with surround sound, a full kitchen, and a bedroom on the second floor to sleep in.......and my wife just told me to DREAM ON!!! huh
