Thanks everybody! No worries Joe..............there be a LITTLE evidence of auto repair here and there. Don't forget that this is a hobby/ weekend backyard garage and not a professional repair shop where the dirt/oil/ fingerprints would be everywhere.

As far as the electrical outlets and light switches..................already got 'em. lol

Wow, looks fantastic!!!!! 

 

Maybe you could add some copies of 'Car & Driver' or other auto magazines for the desk??? 2 cents

Told ya! More items on that desk there Gamera. Got a few goodies in and have been working on the OOB items. I also moved the loose items out of the shop to reduce excessive clutter. Look for the additions and changes..............

Looks completely awesome so far Joe. I was going to suggest some service manuals but, it appears you already have that covered there on the shelves. I find that there is little need to make any suggestions to you as you seem to have every angle covered. It's almost like you've actually spent years in an auto repair garage.Wink

I got through with the tool box with the addition of the burger, fries, shake and other goodies. Had to play around with the color for a while on the buns, meat patty and fries till I got what shade I liked. I applied a subtle wash from Mig Productions on the fries to help bring the detail out some and to give them a true "fries" look. So far I'm good with this:  

And I thought I was "nut's" for putting 1/25 scale crushed beer cans in the back of a pick-up !!!!

Every shop needs a "shop cat" ! ( Otherwise the mice will get your fry's)

                      Dont worry about the thumbprint... paint it rust and call it "Battle damage" !

Thanks for the kudo's fellas. I've still got some more items to go as far as contents of the garage is concerned. I'll be turning my attention to the walls, windows, door and the outside of the shop soon.

I do believe a nice 1970 Grabber Blue Mach 1 would look right at home there!

Nice job!!!

I built a garage diorama that I presented to my son because he and his friends used our garage to work on their cars. He was 18-20 then 38 now.

I added many of the touches you have like magazines, pizza boxes, parts boxes, soft drink cans, oil stains, grease, spare parts on the floor/workbench, etc.

It got to where I just had to tell myself "STOP". Detail is cool but if you aren't careful the project will never be completed.

There is just so much detail stuff available. Either for sale or instructions on how to make your own.

Looks great!  Based on my garage you just need a little blood on the floor from busted knuckles :)
