The runways can be put in 3 different positions for varying track widths. In the pic with the VW they are at their maximum width, meaning I'll never need to adjust them.

Are you gonna park the Volvo under the Beetle, Japan style?

No, it's too inconvenient to go through the gate every time. The Volvo will probably stay in the other garage. I may put the Grand Marquis under it though.

I finished putting the trim up on the drywall seams. Also, I can lift my VW up to max height and not smash it into the light above it.


About 77.5" (197cm) of clearance from the floor to the bottom of the crossbar. I'm pretty sure I duck every time I walk under it because my scumbag brain can't comprehend that the rails are taller than me. I'm only 70" (178cm) tall.


Got the primer up on the wall too.


and painted (the white hasn't been done at this point, not that you could tell)

Painted the other wall.


Installed some under cabinet lighting.


Added a Kicker Hideaway to my Grand Marquis.


Practiced with my TIG machine on some aluminum.

Nice. I have these garage doors. Are you thinking about motorizing them? Wondering if there exists an off the shelf system.

I never had any intention of adding an opener to it. I don't think it would be tough to do.

Intake tube practice piece for my father-in-law's LS conversion. Not horrible but not great. It's practice.
