I'd have a set of those wheels roller trays for mine except that the floor slopes, the drive slopes more, and the car would end up down the back garden and dug into the shed wall! 

I'm ok.  My garage is flat.

Currently full of rubbish from the C19 lockdown clear out - hopefully will be able to access the recycling centre tomorrow.

This is mine after a lock down clear out, quick paint and some concrete dustproofer/hardener on the floor. Much better than the dark dust bowl it was beforehand, but the plan is to eventually get something like ecotile down and some LED strip lights. My daily us usually occupying the side I'm taking the photo from.

One of my neighbours has 2 old MGs in his double garage, I walking past the other day and was going to have a socially distanced chat about his cars, but then I noticed something.......... The garage was completely empty, no tools, no storage, white walls, clean floor, lawn mower in the corner and that's it. How do you have a car conversation with someone like that?? :(

Mine's quite "busy" with stored stuff, but behind the Westie I still have a sufficient working space as the garage is quite deep.

I have gone with a minimalist look. Could do with some wall art🤔.C456AB8F-E424-4330-98D1-7D3AE27AF011.thumb.jpeg.3a769a8ab577aa1690e1974cd01defba.jpeg

Disorganised, hot in summer and cold in winter, draughty, spidery, drippy and old, but that's enough about me. This is my garage and above all, my car building space! 

I could have a good clearout and dump some clutter, but I might need it someday. Had the garage over 15 years now and it's still in fairly good condition (apart from a few cobwebs). Says a lot for Compton quality.

Very jealous of some of you guys with doubles or even bigger!, but to be fair the single is big enough for the little Westy.

Like @Robin (Red Spider) - Yorkshire AO dollies definitely help make best use of space (mine are a bit more DIY though!)...

 

 

 

I was considering getting 2 more but found if needs be I can move the back of the car with brute force if needed 😁

My garage was built in 2005, before I'd ever thought of owning a Westfield.

Walls, painted and plastic floor tiles done.

 

It replaced this:

You could just about get a car in it, but nothing else!

It's prime function was to house this (my 2nd Impreza, a UK300).

Replaced in 2007 with my Spec C T20.

Fast forward to 2016, Impreza sold to fund Westie build

Even had two Westie's in during my build:

I spy Phil Lloyds car there, Ian! (I remember you saying he'd been round with it, years ago.)

Spot on @lloydox popped round for me to tweak his Arduino code to stop Vtec causing his indicators to flash etc, due to no debounce on the digital inputs! Unfortunately it took a while as I couldn't talk to his Arduino due to it having a fake chipset and Microsoft kindly blocked the driver required! It was fixed by buying another Arduino, hence not a drive in, drive out fix on this occasion!
