    Yes as Rin noted, the permits I had to get were for the addition not the remodeling of the parking space.

    More details of the addition and follow up work in this forum.

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    Sometimes on a forum or email, it's easy to misunderstand a statement
    Thanks for explaining.

    Room, yes; time, hopefully. I did get some work done on it so i could move it off the rotisserie and onto the new lift. I'm tackling the woodworking space this week in the garage, then hopefully I'll be able to get to some of the projects after Christmas. Work on the Mustang is near the top of the list.

    I would like to cover the wood floor of my platform with something like you have.
    Is it hard plastic or soft?
    Is the diamond plate texture hard on your knees if you're working on the bikes?

    How are you going to keep the woodshop dust out of that pristine bike area?

    The tile I used on the floor is RaceDeck, and is available in a variety of surface textures. The area I covered is only for parking, when I work on the bikes I move them out into the main parking space. The texture is not hard to kneel on however as the pattern is only minimally raised from the surface of the tile.

    On my parking platform, I used Allure Trafficmaster vinyl flooring.

    I'm considering a sliding curtain that I can pull across the side to close it off somewhat. Aside from that, I'm upgrading my dust management system as part of the makeover to keep the free flying dust to a minimum.
