OT (kinda) - new garage sign

I bought this 1'H x 3'L illuminated sign a few weeks ago and ditched the worn dunlop tires face. We made this one instead at work today.

I like the illuminated sign. Nothing I have can glow at night. Is this your work garage or home garage?

Man am I jealous. Your signs are great and your garage looks better than our upstairs family room. My wife wants the garage keep clean and neat, but I am so short on storage, lawn care equipment space, old vehicle parts, etc that I'll never compete. Hope the wife doesn't see your pics.

I love my garage/shop. All of my spare time is spent restoring, refurbishing, or fabricating new stuff for the place. Some day I'll end up selling it all but so far it's just been a nice place to hang out and work on projects. It took me thirty years to get the garage built and done the way I wanted it. Here are some pics. I don't buy anything restored, it's all usually pretty beat until I fix it up.

Nice color on that truck! Here's a chandelier I made out of my F100 steering wheel, some LED lights, and some Bud-Lite bottles. I like your decorating. I'm glad you have a nice inside place to work considering your location.

Geeze, Wallster. If I had your shop, I'd throw a mattress on the motorcycle lift and never go back into the house.

Very nice job on the sign. Speaking of signs, I recently rescued this one from a little store. It dates back to the 40's and will look right at home with my old tin. Need to make a frame for it and hang it. It's extremely fragile, very thin plastic. It appears to have been lighted at one time with a cardboard backing.

I'll tell you what, those ford ranger seats fully reclined make it pretty tough to drag my a$$ back into the house after a few beers.
