Put an Odyssey PC625 in a 2011 BMW GS Adventure. Changed out the brake rotor flange on a BMW R1200ST.

Busy day.

Organized it a bit:





I also removed the top latching mechanism on my HF 5-Drawer Cart so I can open the drawers with the top closed.

I should have taken pix - I took down all the peg board and misc nick nacks from one nekkid stud wall and hung some Slat board that I got a few years ago from a shoe store that was closing. Tomorrow I'll add some sheet rock and pit all the stuff back on the wall. Well I might Sounds like a good plan but you never know what will happen once you get out of bed!!

Never! It is my shooting wall for videos. It stays clean as a backdrop.

wish I'd taken a picture, I processed all the scrap lumber that was piled in the garage. It was previously two walls and a set of stairs in the garage, and several walls between my kitchen and living room.

By processed I mean de-nailed and cut most of it into 16" lengths and gave it away as firewood. It completely filled a fullsize longbox truck.

Should have painted it for green screen. Then you could show "tire changing in the outback/jungle/moon/etc.
