    Re: Shop done!

    got done with the shop a few months ago but as everyone knows. the shop is never “done”. added a few things, some for looks. some for comfort. some for quality of life.

    added 2 hurricane fans. got these off amazon, $50 each. they are quiet and they oscillate in a figure 8. move air quite well, mainly using them to dry out the shop after a car wash.

    added 2 more lights next to the fans. great for extra lighting when cleaning under the hood. or when polishing the hood.

    picture frame. probably will replace this with a metal print soon, moisture has gotten under the glass.

    jet air filtration. helps circulate some air and also clean it, dust particles everywhere after a car has been completed. was also using this to capture compound dust, more on that next.

    adjusted my cart. my mobile cart is always evolving, it’s now more a polishing cart with a dust compound capturing filter. probably do a video on this later. also added KXK Dynamics rack

    cheap craftsman box. really didn’t need a big box. just holds miscellaneous tools for detailing. going have to figure out another type of organization for my bottles later

    folding table. these are on each side of the shop, always found myself needing a spot to put a bottle so thought of this and it folds away. will paint the top later

    pioneer mini split 18k btu. air conditioning cause it’s texas summer and it will suffocate you

    added insulation to the roll up garage door. lowes bubble insulation. some 3m adhesive spray. helps out a ton

    always more to add to the shop, will update again in a few months.

    donbeezy- Hey, that looks great! And...it that a roll-up door? They`re great, and insulating it was a good idea (mine isn`t, and, well...yeah).

    yup, roll up door. insulation helps out with the sun beating on it.

    floor drain is in the middle, i try not to pressure wash with the garage door close... builds up too much humidity. but the water all slopes towards the center for most part.

    Yeah, I bet! Even here in Ohio, you don`t want to touch my doors in the summer/winter. Or even get too close to `em.

    ..floor drain is in the middle, i try not to pressure wash with the garage door close... builds up too much humidity. but the water all slopes towards the center for most part.
    Ah, OK..and yeah, I hear you on the humidity (my dehumidifier runs almost constantly even when I don`t wash).

    Is your floordrain "sanitary" or "gray water"? I had to spend a bundle for EPA compliance setting it up for Sanitary.
