hey guys
here a scale gararge ive been working on

ive been wanting to build something like for awhile, so i figure i give it shot .
ive started by buying a peice 1/4 inch styrene,  this way i can bolt stuff to the floor.
 right now im waiting the floor covering and the wall covering to come in,  in the mean while
i started to build a working truck lift.   fr the main post ive used 1 inch square stock with 2 actuators in them .
ive purchased a snap on toll box , which is really kool and highly detailed, also fun a reall kool engine hoist.
ive fun some other stuff too. i believe everybody will like what ive in mine . the truck lift is going to really kool when done
so lets get started
