Can anybody guess what I just got?....Me an my buddy found a pretty decent shop with high ceilings and we just picked it up today. Gave the guy the money signed the papers and gave us the keys. The shop can fit 3 cars comfortably and 4 cars normal. Its got a bathroom, free electricity and water and he is throwing in a free tool cart...Haha. Its crazy much a tool cart is now and days..200-400 for a decent tool cart. But yea...It needs a little work like the walls need to be painted and all new locks so nobody can break in but thats really about it.. Floors kinda uneven but we are redoing the floors in the future anyways when we get the jack in..

So right now im looking for a good compressor thats at least a 80 gallon 6+hp, 15+cfm at 90psi. Something around those lines to a can spray with it and knock some paint jobs out. My buddies getting the welder and we should have a 2 post open top lift within 2-3 months. After that its bank for us.

My car and a friends car is going to be the shop cars that is going to be bringing us the performance peoples. When they see my 10sec talon and his 9sec Colt people are going to want in. Im stoked as hell about this...

No its not really a performance shop. Right now its just for a hang out for us to work on our own cars after work in a relaxing place. You know some good tunes, mini fridge full of beer and just chilling or wrenching away. Sure we already have a few jobs here and there but until we have everything situated there like the lift, welder, compressor, plasma cutter we arent going to go out and get a business license and insurance for the shop. I just moved in all my spare extra spare tools and all my detailing things.

Actually we just moved in most of my stuff...table computer, with ALL-DATA fax and printer, stereo, chairs. Were not going to quit our day jobs just yet. We are going to see how this goes. If it starts to become a business than thats great but if it doesnt its still cool because it was original just going to be a shop of our own personal cars. Hell with rent only being $200 a piece $400 total we can afford to just do one job there each and mess around the rest of the time and that will pay for that month. This is the greatest deal ever. 1st month, last month, +2 months security deposit. and $400 rent split between two people with no utilities. It doesnt get better than this. Ill snap some pictures for you guys to see...

That sounds like a steal. Good luck on the performance shop if you ever intend to make one because the competition is HOT.

Im beat ... we brought in some more tools and equipment. I moved my car in there and we also towed a buddies car in there. Right now we are getting a overhang room/office build on on side since is a high ceiling shop. and the bottom floor will be the work shop. We got all the wood for the office and we anchored the wall supports in and got the two support beams almost finished.

Been thinking about putting a shower there also and getting a couch up there and everything so if anything ever happens with the women we have a place to stay. Shop is also fully insulated so thats sweet in itself. Haven't gotten pics for ya to see yet but I get it done when i remember. Right now its a mess in there. When everything is all settled in it should be good.

that sounds fun, I don't really want to open a performance shop but having a huge amount of space to work on cars in = win.
