I haven't mentioned but my favorite part of the garage is my sticker bomb shoe box. This is an old wooden box i've had since i was a small kid and i decided to re-purpose it.

Wow - that is a lot in those bags. And for 3 bucks a piece, what a steal! I will have to keep my eye out for something similar, thanks.

Having a garage has definitely been useful for a variety of reasons, first year with the GLI i was able to store it, which was the first time i was able to do so. Luckily the years since I've had a buddy with a big garage and a thirst for beer as a trade



Also allowed me to tackle some small projects and modifications in house.






One thing I'll have to consider now is I've lost some useable surface space since my last reorg. Have to give it some thought as there are a lot of restraints I'm working with.

Back from a little Cayman vacation and decided to chip away a little more at the garage. I painted the other primary wall and the back wall that was hidden by the shelves. Love it.

Its funny since adding all the lights in the garage it makes the other rooms in my house seem dark or that i have some bulbs that are burnt out. I really notice leaving the garage into the laundry room.

Haha, is that right, oh well to each their own. The black mk6 is a daily and pretty stock minus some esthetic tweaks.

My garage queen is a special edition mk4 GLI which came with Recaro sport seats, full OEM body kit, Audi TT brakes, and pedals, full aluminum interior trim, sport suspension (upgraded now), sport exhaust (upgraded now) 18" BBS RC wheels, and most other options available for a Jetta of the year. Its the 1.8T with 6-speed manual. Stock with 180HP but I've since added the Giac X+ chip, Bailey Diverter Valve, Carbonio Cold air intake, 3" 42DD Down pipe, and full 3" turbo back exhaust system. Put in ST Coils with spacers this past summer as well as several small cosmetic changes.

Got some garage art up on the wall. Been wanting one of these for awhile and this just arrived last night. Love it!

Great start!

It's amazing how even white paint can make a garage look so much better!

Nice to see another Ontario & Single Car Garage member

As a canadian, single car garage guy, I enjoyed looking at your garage.

Here's mine:

Now, I'm really curious about your beagle!

I'm a beagle lover. Wrinkles was my best friend for 14 years. He passed almost 13 year ago and I still miss him.

Tell us about your beagle!

HAha, yea she's a real cutie, the apple of my wife's eye lol... Sasha is 4 years old and we have had her for about 4 years now. We rescued her when she was 6 months old and she has been great ever since. She definitely is true to the breed but particularly with snuggling, contact, and needing to be super comfortable. She loves changing the bed sheet day as well.

Sweet. An mk2 Jetta is what first got me into Euro cars, and especially VW's. I had an 88 Silver Slalom edition which was a real beaut and it was a family hand me down. From there i went to a mk3 GTI Vr6, mk4 jetta, MINI Cooper, mk5 Jetta, B5 A4 2.8, mk6 Golf and my mk4 GLI.

I'm looking forward to seeing your results with your build.

I've never heard of that nor your special mk4.. I'll have to look it up. It won't be finished for years due to a lack of money I had a 97 jetta gt that I wrecked then this mk2.

My beagle was bottle raised by me from the age of 2 weeks. I was mom LOL. Was your typical beagle and always got into all kinds of trouble!

He was a wonderful dog. When my wife married me, I came with a beagle.

We now have Max, he's almost 13 and he's a spaniel/poodle cross. He's an amazing dog too, but doesn't have the inquisitive, get into trouble personality of a beagle!

Sasha is beautiful!

OMG i wish we would have had her since young. They are unbelievably cute when they are puppies. Good for you as I'm sure that was a handful.
