    This isn't what it usually looks like, but I didn't get any before pics. Only during the mess.

    This wall still needs some help. ANd I need to get rid of that green filling cabinet.

    And I also need to figure out what to do with all of these. :blink:

    The plan is to make some doors for all of the units so that they are enclosed and will more effectively keep all of my welding and grinding dust off of everything. From all the gates I have built I had 27 sheets of 4'x4' sheet metal. I used these to enclose the back and side of the shelves so now all I need is doors for the front.

    Now comes the larger task of actually organizing it all instead of it all being thrown on in no specific order. I just want to see me garage floor again today. :crazy:

    No they are not Gorrilla racks. The measure 73" by 30" and 8' high. They are similar to Gorrilla's but a little larger and beefier. I got them from a club member. The gorrilla racks that you can get from Home Depot are what my work bench is mae out of.

    I recognized your bench as Gorillas but was not sure on big guys. Are the big ones a name brand ?

    They do not have a name on them and I didn't get them new. I'll ask the guy I got them from if he knows.

    The organization or the bike riding? I am usually pretty good of putting things away in my garage. As far as the bikes, well it took me about 8 years to get back into it and I am at an all time high right now so I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon.:D

    I already have 2 hanging up in the only real place I can hang them. Any other place I have to hang them, they would be in the way when I am working. I'll figure something out.



    BTW 1 down 2 to go.

    Galvanized corrugated steel. I made some frames out of 1/2" square tubing and hung the steel off of it. I still need to add some handles to them. Not sure just yet what I will be using for that.
