All the walls and the ceiling are light grey (BEHR silver sateen) exept the rear wall which is orange (Benjamin Moore mojave red).

The floor will be grey as well, but a darker, blueish shade. The silver sateen also have some kind of blue in the mix, so everything will blend together.

Walls and ceiling are done, still have to do the floor, next weekend...

I screwed up the floor paint, I have to redo it, so pics are delayed.

Forget the garage, what happened to the Viggen front the first photo?

I kid of course, the project looks awesome, can't wait to see the lift and the finished garage. How high is your ceiling?

The Viggen is gone. I had to take a difficult decision when I moved. There is not enough place here. Well... now there is, but not for the last 18 months. I was dealing with the possibility of paying 80$/mo for a year and a half for storage, but then the right buyer with the right amount showed up. I still miss my Viggen

The A4 is my new winter project, it needs a new engine.

There it is, pretty much done, of course some small details to finish here and there but you know, it's never completely done.

That came out great! I wish that I had that much room around my Racks in my garage. I also love the sink and computer in the garage.
