    :)

    I was just telling someone the other day that it's nice to have the stuff, but the constant insurance bills and DMV registration reminders start to get tiring. Plus it always seems like something is broken or needs adjusting/lubrication/cleaning/PM etc. I am in the process of selling the street bike because I have no time for it.... and my house is in shambles amidst a bathroom remodel. First world problems. LOL

    Ah I could see that, exact reason I really should sell my subaru between insurance/reg/taxes on 3 vehicles plus the maintenance it gets crazy. How do you get the quads up on that 2nd level?

    The black metal shelf that the smaller quads are on is actually a small four post lift. :thumbsup:

    I've been feeling the same the last couple of years with a fleet of vehicles.
    Throw a couple of teenagers into the mix and you've got a very full plate.

    I have learned that too many hobbies leaves too little time and too little money for all of them. At least for me anyway. LOL!!!

    We just got into a new construction home last April. Been working on it little by little. Installed SwissTrax flooring in the garage along with paint/baseboard. Almost done with it besides a couple more storage things like another workbench plus I want to do some better lighting. Either recessed lighting or a LED system of some sort.
    As far as the flooring goes, weighted my options between a HD DIY epoxy kit, swisstrax, and a different type of epoxy coating through a local company. Glad I went with this.

    That looks nice! How is that stuff to clean up spills - like oil and stuff?

    It clicks together. Really easy to just lift up a square or multiple to clean anything up. It’s ribbed and stuff just drops underneath to the cement.

    You can use a shop vac to suck up dirt and stuff or like me, I just use my handheld blower to blow away the dirt every time I do yard work. You can also just water it down since the bottom has openings for water to run out.

    Here’s a better picture of it. Tons of colors to choose from even though I went the simplistic route of grey and black border. Still working on the single bay side with more wall rail hanging.

    I grabbed these Husky workbench/cabinets from offer-up at a steal compared to retail pricing. The cabinets were missing the shelving but I cut some plywood and made my own for a lot less than what they sell those shelves for. Still have a few more to make for one of the two cabinets. I have tons of tools and ammo reloading stuff to store so I’ve slowly been finding way to clean everything up.

    Not sure it's worth reloading shotgun stuff. With 6.5 Creedmore going for more then $1 each, it's still worth it for that. Then 35 Rem is always unavailable and 44mag is very simple to do. My .223 reloads are always better then factory. I moved all my reloading to a special room in the basement.

    10+ foot ceilings with a 220 outlet because I wanted a lift. I gave up on the lift idea and old cars after I purchased this Mustang.

    I shoot USPSA matches and just started loading about a year ago after we moved in. I was spending wwwaayyy too much buying factory .40sw Federal Syntech for my competition gun. This press paid itself off with savings on that alone by now. I just switched to a different division and will be loading 9mm now. Sometime in the next few months I plan on loading .223 but will probably have to wait.

    I hate reloading 9mm when 45ACP is a lot easier.
