This is amazing any chance you could post up how you did the ceiling and everything. It's so realistic if it weren't for the little dudes in some of the pics nobody would know it wasn't real.

Thanks. I saw your website and the dio page I like all the background you are doing on it. Really makes it come alive. I hope you don't mind me copying you when I go to do the ceiling on my dio.

Craig; gotta tell you that the Chevelle up on the jackstands shots just look REAL! Your garage scene is very much realistic in almost every way. Awesome work; I will be looking to your work when I get ready to do my garage.

Craig, this is just fantastic! :) I love the look of the exposed light tubes. And I have to mimic Greg......How did you pull off the realistic fresh grinding on the Chevy's quarter panel?? :lol:

thanks Russ,
I used K&S .005 aluminum sheet and cut to shape then just glued it on in some spots. I traced out the quarter panel on the aluminum then just cut it out.

That's a really cool idea! How often do garage scenes have a ceiling that's actually a part of the display?

Thanks guys!
Thought I would do a 572 block (like a crate type engine) to sit next to a car being built and the engine that is going in that car. I just used some black guitar wire for the studs. Still have to sand the tops of them and paint black. Little touch up work and add a few more things to the engine and should be done.
Thanks for looking.
Manny
