Of course - it depends on what you are going to store there - if light in weight maybe not an issue.

edit - I say a couple, but it would of course take 6 pieces.

There's a lot to be said for that, for sure.

That's basically why I want to do something. A sample of that racedeck just came through the mail, but I'm not prepared to lash out those kind of readies for it, no matter how nice it is. I think I'm going to paint the floor with epoxy though. I've splurged enough on building the shop, so another 150 bucks to finish it off is OK, and I won't be too worried when I damage a painted floor. I think I'd be so scared of damaging the racedeck I would never do anything except sit around drinking beer.

Hmmm.

Have fun in the garage and take care of that little guy. They are big before you know it.

You can often get the line laid for much less than a standard quote if you rent a small ditch witch and do the trenching yourself . . . . . I saved a couple a hunnert bux that way

Not sure if it's still the case, but I got my racedeck at Costco about 3 years ago (based on commentary early in this thread) for pretty short money (under $3/tile if memory serves). It goes under a different brand (motofloor maybe) but someone did all the digging and confirmed it is indeed rebranded racedeck. Only problem was that it was only available in a couple of colors, but 3 years later I'm quite happy with it.

That was about what I have in mind.

Thanks for the input, these are my first. Overall the load isn't huge (<200#/shelf), and I've got it anchored solidly into 3 studs on the short side and several on the long so it seems OK so far. I've taken them and shaken the hell out of them (with all of my 225$) with not even a wiggle so I'm happy with the load bearing abilities.

I guess a bonus is my LP tank is only about 15' from the side of the garage I'd put this on, so I could probably dig it myself pretty easily.

Almost done.

I need to trim around the machines so the chips can't collect behind them.






And this is where I avoid working:

1972 Honda CB350
Chaparrell Minibike
1973 Yamaha TY 250
1972 Yamaha DT 250
1973 Suzuki TM 250 - I had a 72 TM250
1973 Suzuki TS 125

Little queezee on the Honda, not sure where Chaparell came from,
it was the first thing that popped into my head. It's leading link forks
that were only found on Monarks, DKWs,Rogers DeCosters RH370 and for some reason I'm thinking Carabella (Mexico). How close am I ?
