Default Sept 1989 - Apr 20015 ManCave

Hey guys new member here but 25+ years ManCave dweller

I've been doing paint/body/collision since the mid 70's. I built the garage in 89 to do side work at night and weekends. Through the years as I got older and not wanting to do paint & body work day and night, I decided to rewire, insulate, drywall, mini split heat/ac system and add flooring. The mancave seems to keep changing... I just don't know why lol.

Cleaned out a lot of engine blocks transmissions etc. I'm guessing around year 2000.



Triple sliding glass window.



I needed to shoot the truck bed before the work started (last paint work in the building)



Sheetrock & insulation





Walls finished, painted, bar construction started after RaceDeck flooring installed.



For awhile I had gym equipment in the big room. Took to much space so moved to basement.



Unfinished bedroom



Though I don't spray in here anymore I still do paint correction & detailing work.





Home Theater ( JBL, Denon, Samsung, HTPC )



Bar Pendant lights and bar led's



Last Halloween... Mummy backlit transparent poster $7 Amazon lol



I need a drink after the "Mummy"



Classic Monster Movie posters and some wall sculptures from "Design Toscano"





Electronic Candle Wall Sconces and Dragon Sculpture "Design Toscano"

Scuba Dave is not happy about this.

Nice! Looks like everyone but me has those round ice cube makers, I'll have to get with the program.

WTF happened to Scuba, we ever figure that out?

The mancave or the truck?

I've painted every panel on the truck due to small dings and scratches through the years except the passenger door and roof. I replaced the chrome bumper with a urethane bumper from a GMC Denali, color matched the mirrors (were ABS black plastic), re-shot the tailgate and repaired damage from a deer collision... I killed Bambi

Stripping 2 layers of color & clear



couple dings and OEM tailgate cap holes welded and filled



Primed with 2K



Sprayed color & clear (gravel driveway)



Spoiler shot in PPG Deltron over a epoxy primer.



Denail front bumper and mirrors prepped and ready for epoxy primer



Primed



Color & clear shot (gravel driveway) and bumper & mirrors installed







Before & After



Deer damage (2011)

Replaced fender, windshield, mirror, door, bedside and repaired hood & cab.



Bambi
