Default Aaron's Double Garage

Hi all from Australia,

I have a basic size double car garage (5mtrsX5mtrs).
I have lived in my house for 10 years.
My wife and I have done a lot to the interior of to house and left the garage till the very end.
Since joining Garage Journal I have been inspired by a few garages and sheds and the detail you all go to.
I thought it would be my turn to share.
I will start at the beginning with my garage and also include my shed later on.
We didn't like the plain brick walls so the decision was to paint them. This is one job I will never do again.
As you can see in the photos the garage floor was painted with paving paint from the previous owners and has not lasted.
More to come.

Next job was to do the garage floor.
I was going to epoxy the floor but to much work and didn't like to leave the cars outside.
I found these PVC tiles (30cmX30cm).
They lock into one another.
It took about half and hour to lay the whole garage floor.
Just at the end of the rollers doors I painted the floor to match in with the tiles.

Welcome to GJ Aaron,

Nice looking place you have there.
What size are those roll up doors?
I had considered a roll up door in my build but the cost was out of my budget.
What are your plans for the place?

Great progress on the garage. Looks like it is going to be a super space. I will be watching to see how you set things up. I like the floor tiles, and not sure I have seen those anywhere before. Nice. Thanks for sharing with us and welcome.

Best Regards
Herb

Thanks for visiting PECVD2.

The doors are 2.4 mtrs wide and 2.2 mtrs high.
These are new roller doors. The other doors had broken springs.
My plans at the moment is to get things set up and enjoy but this will take time.

Thanks for visiting Herb.

Thanks 1/2 Cup.

I also enjoy your Garage and shed projects.

I got them from:

www.carpettiles1.com.au/pvcinterlockingtiles.php

I think they might be on Ebay as well.

Next stage was to get most of my car detailing product to the garage.
I don't have to much room but these cabinets hold lots of stuff.

That is about the same space I have for detailing supplies, except mine is kept on an open metal shelf. I wish I had something to keep the dust off everything. Looks like you got a great set up. Keep up the great organization!

Best Regards
Herb

This is my Daily driver.
Its a Ford Courier GL ute. I bought it new (2005). It's the longest I have owned a car.
I detail the car and keep the services up to date.
I noticed the headlights starting to go yellow so I bought a headlight lens restorer kit.
Cleaning the headlights took about half and hour.
Once finished the headlights looked brand new again.
It just clocked up 90000KM this week so I gave it a service and cleaned under the bonnet.

Super nice vehicle. I bet it really comes in handy for hauling new toys back to the shop!

Good job on the headlights as well.

Best Regards
Herb

Cleaning the headlights was not to bad.

Hey, nice job on the floor. I got some questions.
How is handling the stopping and reversing on the wheels?
does it move?
did you stick down the front edge?
Are the lights still clear?
