Cool Harley#356 Garage renovations 2.0

Quick thread on my garage renovations at the new house. Fortunately a lot less work than our last house. My last garage was a 12'x23' single car but bare studs, open rafters. I insulated, sheetrocked, painted, etc. the entire thing. This house is a 21x20.5 two car but already insulated and rocked and painted an ugly almond color, so it was much quicker to bring up to par.

Before pics....

Foundation all caulked, painted dark gray/blue.
Ceilings painted flat white.
Upper 2/3rds of walls painted off white.
Lower 1/3rds of walls painted gray.

Almost same exact colors as my old garage, except I'm not doing the hand painted 02 HD style flame stripe between the colors like last time lol. Too much work for 90% of it to end up covered with cabinets and everything else. I did order some 1/2" blue vinyl pinstripe that will be my border, much quicker!

And the best mod yet, that I wished I had done in my last garage.....I installed a 120v winch on the floor. Save the ball busting about "oh a mod cuz your truck is always blown up", using it ONE time it pays for itself lol. Harbor freight it's cheap, it's already paid for itself with 1 use. ESPECIALLY since my driveway is on a slope, even as "light" as my truck is, it's still a tank to push, especially uphill and over a garage lip lol.

And I like to push the limits, so yes my truck will be down in the future because I'm not too chicken-chit to push the envelope lol so it'll get used again. Not to mention any other projects I need to winch in for wrenching, since the lift will be going on this side of the garage.

Works like a charm, already used it once to get the truck out to do the flooring, and will be using it again to get the truck out when the garage doors get replaced with insulated doors and a high lift track conversion.

And my racedeck flooring down. Made it pretty far using what I had from my old garage and some extra I had. Just needed to order 117 more pieces to finish it off, should be here later this week. That flooring was one of the best investments I've made to date. 7 years old, still holding up great, popped right up to move with me, great for wrenching, great for keeping off the cold concrete in the winter, looks great.

Next up....tinting the windows, blinds, pinstriping the paint line, setting up my cabinets, insulated garage doors, high lift rail conversion, Ryobi opener, hanging up my HD posters, then finally a 4 post lift down the road...

Looks good. How does that racedeck hold up to jackstands and hydraulic jack wheels? Does it get dimpled?

It's actually not as bad as it looks. It's a couple feet from the truck not right up against it. With the truck against the back wall, I can open the door to the first detent without hitting the post. With the truck up to the garage door, I can open the door fully and clear the pole which will be awesome for wintertime wrenching in the interior. In my last 1 car garage, I couldn't even open the door to the first detent because it'd hit my wall lined with cabinets no matter where I positioned the truck. So I'll take 1 pole with plenty of over room over what I had before!

And on the passenger side, I can open it to the first detent, and open it about half way to the second before I hit the wall. In my old garage I couldn't even open the passenger door at all with the truck inside.

Plus, there will be 2 more posts in the middle of the garage once I get my 4 post lift and that adds 2 more posts along the centerline of the garage, so the middle one for the ceiling isn't a big deal.

The post will be getting "done up" too, I can't leave anything alone lol. Going to do CF vinyl wrap on the upper half and make it look like a CF driveshaft haha. I'm also using half of my split CF DS to be the railing for the steps going into the house. The bottom half of the pole I'm going to wrap in adhesive lined padding to protect from any door bumps from either side. It won't be just a big white stick with zip tied padding anymore.

Flooring for the entire garage is about $1,100.....It cost me around $700 to do my 1 car garage with spare stuff, and I just bought another $400 to finish the last bit. Depends on what style you get, the HD logo stuff is more expensive than the circle track stuff. If you're a forum member on Garage Journal it saves you a good amount, like over a buck a tile cheaper which adds up, and free shipping. Sure paint would have been dirt cheap but wouldn't last. Epoxy would have been a little cheaper but again sometimes not last and requires a lot of prep. The race deck prep was sweeping the floor and painting the perimeter. It's also warmer in the winter than epoxy since it keeps you up off the concrete.

Must be your phone or something if it's rotating the photos sideways. They all appear correctly oriented on my screen lol

Holds up great. I've had my truck on jack stands for 6+ months at a time in the past, on straight edge jack stands (not flat pads), and doesn't even leave a dimple. Jack wheels roll fine and don't sink in at all. There are a couple tiles from my really high traffic area that have gotten a little worn, with small scratches that then hold the dirt and look a bit more brown, but I mean the small area I had to work in before that I'd always be standing on, grinding above, metal shavings falling onto and getting scuffed around, and 7 years of it. I wouldn't use it for a 100% workshop, but for a garage that's part wrench, part storage, part whatever, it's a great choice.

1/2 are correct and 1/2 are sideways for me in tapatalk.

Side note, I love my racedeck. Josh turned me on to them. Here's a picture of mine when I first installed it.

Must be tapatalk flipping them! I specifically saved them all in the right orientation to post lol

Floor looks great, now how quickly did that space fill up with a truck and your tools in it?!

Directly from Race Deck. Join Garage Journal forums if you haven't already, they just ask for your screen name. Call direct to order and ask for the GJ discount.

That's what i was thinking. Laminated beams aren't expensive either. But I do understand his motive to get this done and get moving on the "big" project
