How is yours holding up?
What did you attatch the neoprene with?
The neoprene (I'm pretty shure that is what it is) does have a diamond plate pattern. It was kinda expensive. I purchased a 4' X 8' piece and cut it down the middle (2' X 8'). The other half I am going to put on the bike lift.

It has been holding up very well. No chemicals have attacked it yet.

It is not attached and lays flat with no problems of slipping or moving around.

I really like your work area. Outstanding!

Congratulations. Hope it sellls well.

Thanks for the comments guys... I don't get out there as much as I'd like but when I do it makes a great escape pod. The BMW stuff is my brandy new project... looking forward to it.

Cheers,
Claude

Update! 2009.11.08

Hello! There's been a lot of progress on the shed since the last post. Also, lost some progress pics since they accidentally got deleted. No biggie. This week Eric has been a HUGE help in getting a large quantity of the work completed. We got the roof sheathed. Tar paper was put up. we closed in the gable ends. I got some of the fascia board up, and we got the doors and windows in. The windows were cake to get in. The single door was super easy and took about 10 minutes to get leveled and screwed in. The double door was a serious PITA. Spent probably 30 minutes to an hour trying to get it all right and mounted. After about 3 tries, we finally got it to cooperate. Here's some pictures.



The shingling is pretty fun once you get it going. You have to off set the starting edge to make sure you get proper overlap to avoid leaks. Also, had to cut about 8 shingles in half to use as a starting edge. Things are going well though. I ran out of nails so I'm taking a break. Then heading over to Mom's house for brothers birthday, then back to work.
In hindsight....
There are a couple things I regret not doing. One is building a more robust floor. I will be going back underneath the shed to add more supports for the floor. I can feel a little bit of flex in parts of the floor. Not much, but I know 1/8 in flex now will turn into 1/2 inch flex later. I should really have gone w/ 2x6 or 8 sub floor. It would have made enough of a difference. Oh well, time to go back and fix up some things already. I will know and trust for future endevours. I appreciate all the input I've been getting and look forward to more. Hopefully once this is finished, I can start on some other cool projects. :)
