Default Made some changes to the garage space

Just added a little flare to my work bench. It was getting pretty crappy, and needed to be painted. So I added a little something.

I really just needed to clean off all of the crap that was on it from tearing down and building the new transmission and engine for Tink. It was starting to soak up oil, grease, and chemicals. I was worried about it soaking up too much and becoming a fire hazard.

It's a rather crude bench, but it's worked for 3 years. I'm thinking of putting a clear resin layer over the top to keep it from getting cruddy again.

There's a vice for this bench, too. Gotta have a good vice.

Cool

I made it myself. It's a stencil I made in Photoshop and spent about an hour cutting it out with a razor blade. Had to freehand an outline, and then laid down a few coats of paint in negative space. I'll upload the stencil here.
