    fully rad! 500 bucks spent on paint and some nice lights, and the place will be golden!

    In Toyota, we rust.

    nice buddy! i just scored a shop myself, really, really stoked:


    much bigger than i would ever dream of.. that big ass motorhome will be parked outside shortly. me and a friend are planning on starting up a little mechanics shop to pay off the bills... but the owner is a really dope guy and isn't going to charge us anything other than hydro until we get our feet off the ground. nice thing is it is fully equipped with all the equipment + tools you can think of.

    huge compressor, lincoln 220v stick welder, century 160v mig, solvent washer, sandblaster, hydraulic press, 2-post lift, drum & rotor brake lathe, old coats 10-10 tire machine, forklift (perfect for engine swaps!), oxy acetylene + extra tanks and of course all of our tools (2 roll cabs worth). really excited.

    lol yeah sorry. i totally forgot to let you guys on DK know about it.. still really overwhelming. a lot of cleanup + organizing to do.

    yeah narfy, my buddy told me that there are rim protectors made for that machine.. i am on the hunt to find some!

    me and 3 friends are renting this place for crazy cheep, power and everything included. its so we can work on our own cars, and have a way to make a couple bucks when work is slow. normal work has been crazy busy right now, so its coming togeather realy slow. we got the back wall, upstairs, and tool room painted now. once i get some time im striping the corolla down to nothing.


    i just got some 06 gsxr 750 throttle bodies off ebay for $30, now what?
