Good looking garage! What kind of compressor are you planning to go with? We're getting ready to build a garage at our house, looking into compressors..amongst other necessary tools to fill it with.

Also, I run a water jet for work, so if you ever need any parts and they aren't too terribly large I might be able to help out. Looks like you found a hook up with a laser though!

Thanks Y'all!

Garage is 22' x 32', so that's the long 32' wall you're looking at. One of the short walls was already drywall'd. I wanted it to match plus long term goals is to be fully finished. Nice flat, bright white walls really help with lighting too. For my first time doing drywall it wasn't so bad!

Choosing a compressor is hard...I did a lot of research and I'm 95% settled on a BelAir 216V air compressor. It's assembled in the US in the same factory as Quincy machines. 2 stage cast iron pump, 5hp motor...rated at 15cfm @90PSI. Most HVLP guns need somewhere in the neighborhood of 12CFM @40 PSI so it should be more than enough. Quincy seems to be the more favored brand, however their comparable model requires a $200 "warranty kit" in order to get a 3 year warranty. So it ends up being like $600 more.

Well, Iíve got a few things to update...

Got my air compressor plumbed and installed.





I finished my seat mounts and welded them in.





Got my hydro handbrake. I got the un-anodized version so I can have the handle anodized blue.


This week I broke my left foot, so that should slow the progress down. Nothing crazy, just tripped and folded my foot over. Blamo. 4-6 weeks in an air cast...



Despite that setback, I was able to make a box/mount for my handbrake. I used 16 gauge sheet steel, cut and bent, welded the seams and dimpled. Iím stoked on how it came out.






Drilled it out and welded in nuts. Then painted the back with etch primer and tacked it into place.




Annnnd the finished product.




So I have a little welding to finish up. I need to rivet the trunk panel in place and seam seal everything. Then I can sand and paint the interior! Weíll see how much I can get done with this stupid foot.

Wellll I finally got around to finishing the interior up, seam sealing, and painting.

I used SEM dual mix seam sealer with was awesome...itís a two part material that sets in about ten minutes. Very tough stuff. I also bought aluminum discs to glue in over the old plug holes in the floor.



After what felt like days of cleaning and sanding and cleaning and sanding, the interior was finally ready for paint. So yesterday I masked everything off and shot it with two coats of Rust Bullet automotive (silver) and then two coats of their White Shell top coat.





I actually really liked the silver. Maybe I should have kept it silver...
