Normally, I would welcome being at home (so long as I am healthy) as I can sneak off in my free time to the garage to work on the car, but right now, having just brought the car back from NISMO, AND how we are STILL unpacking from our move into the new house, the only thing I can do is to continuing organizing my new space. Still can't find all of my tools and car cleaning stuff...
First order of business was to find a place to store parts, both old and new, which I probably won't be using in the near future. The garage is still a work in progress, and I plan to order some cabinets to place along the wall here:
|And yes there is a sink with hot and cold taps there too... he he he|
Given my limited budget and how garage cabinets aren't really sold in Japan, I am thinking about ordering something from Alibaba. Can anyone recommend any decent quality garage cabinets/garage cabinet makers? More importantly for my Italian (and other color coordinated talented) friends, COLOR? What COLOR?
So that's for storage. What about a proper work bench?
|Damn fish (bought for the kids who now don't care) won't die...|
Anyway - so I have a bunch of old parts taken off both cars, as well as new parts never installed. Eventually if I get the cabinets, yes there will be space between the cabinets and ceiling so some stuff can be stored in that space. Meanwhile...
I did some research and found these DIY assembly storage sheds from Takubo Mono-oki. Just like IKEA, except it's much more solidly built.
So it arrived in several boxes, forgot to take photos but basically after laying the floor piece and making sure it's flat, you build the walls up, then the roof on top. Pretty straightforward but not fun as a one man job (especially when the walls are over 2 meters tall and it's a windy day).
| People usually place these sheds on blocks that themselves are on flat land. I had to get creative due to limited space. |
So the rear sits on 3 blocks, but the front side rests nicely on this low wall.
|This really isn't a one man job but somehow I managed|
|I chose the 3/4 shelves style unit as I wanted to be able to vertically store long items|
Yep, the oem sideskirts and rear sfrom my car
I have to say the paint quality on this shed (for this price) is impressive.
|Made In Japan...|
|It's almost like owning an EV...|
