    That not a garage that a glorified man cave :Wink: get rid of tools get a old school beer fridge a few neon signs ,get the lads over for a barbecue job done.:Friends:

    Naah kidding bud if I had that garage it will grey epoxy flooring, white walls and loads of soft LED lighting. 110 DC and 230 AC sockets everywhere you can never had enough sockets . Plumb in air sockets too if your budget can stretch that far. A must two anti fatigue mats (my personal favourite) is you are standing for long periods.

    As for Honda memorabilia they are hard to get in the UK , now and again dealer closures you can get some superb pieces. I have some rare one but I will keep an eye out for you , likewise let me know if you see some gems :Wink:

    I will get some pictures up soon.

    In the US they have fantastic memorabilia some collectors have some precious Honda memorabilia which they won't part with. I have been trying to get them for year but they won't budge on price and can't come to a deal.

    I can't wait until the end of the year to move into our new house, or should I say the double garage that comes with it.
    Currently have no garage and fed up with working outside.

    I would love one of those large 16x16 Honda signs .. how much did you pay for one of those ?

    The tank I bought (I wish my welding was that good), I built the rest of the compressor though. Compressors are 1HP freezer compressors, they emit about 50dB at 1 metre. Standard compressor would probably emit around 100dB at 1 metre (about three times louder).
