Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

I got the slab poured and final measurements for the doors. I'm gonna call Clopay today and ask about the highlift option as all the local dealers seem to know nothing.

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

Been messing around online mostly and the best Iv'e found so far are Clopay doors, but when you go through the online door build it won't option high lift tracks unless you select "commercial doors" I can't see why it would make any difference though.

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

Its all coming together slowly. Garage slab will be poured on 4/13. Then I can start door shopping. looking for highlift doors and the only thing I can find is conversions for existing doors. I'm not sure if you can buy a setup already designed that way. IMG_20180406_131501.jpg IMG_20180403_153935.j...

Interesting. Why limiting to FWD? don't wanna have the Miata gang involved?? $3500 to build a wheel to wheel tech passing car is crazy cheap?! he must have don't the cage himself or got a freebie because that usually costs around 3k by itself. Looks fun but I think the price may be misleading. I nee...

CAD play

Messed with lighting a bit, put some tire paint on, drilled the rotors and painted the calipers. Need to spend time on my real one but the house will be dominating my time for the foreseeable future. Its weird that the doors make those weird shadows when I do a render. 2-8.jpg Here is what the view-...

Re: CAD play

I'm not really sure, been trying to sort that out. The meshes don't seem to play well together there. Like in those renders it looks like the door doesn't match the lines of the car body, but it does.

Re: Project: Integra

Those rotor screws are a pain. I don't even try to take them out without the impact driver.

A company called Gard makes some very high quality left handed drills if you are ever looking to buy some good bolt / screw extraction stuff.

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

The issue I see with placing it in the center bay is that it would always be in the way. At least with it to one side I can park daily without worrying about hitting it with my door.

Yep, 12' walls, cieling will be about 12' 3".

Roadster Tech day at Shadow's

So yesterday I went to visit Shadow and we pulled the left axle out on the solstice to replace a leaking axle seal. It was a good learning experience and I think we could do it in half the time if it needed redone. So far no new puddles under the car so I think it was a success. Then we got in his S...

Re: A new garage, hope I do it right.

I haven't been keeping this up to date well. I like your idea of a thick section for a lift. I'd like you to come visit and help me plan the pour. Shadow, Mrs. Shadow and some friends came out and helped frame the garage. The girlfriend and I sheathed it. It's moving along pretty well. IMG_20171028_...

Re: The Ẽfini 7

Funny guy, You taught me that the passenger mirror is convex. and at a much more severe angle in the housing. Since your not giving up your Ganadors yet, I went with OEM.
