Clyde's Repair opened the 2013 "Cruise Night" season with a mini-display of GM Muscle Cars recently prepared by Clyde's Repair.  The guests enjoyed food and entertainment while looking at vintage cars brought by the host and guests. It was a fun night capped off with a bit of a nostalgia street challenge by the two Corvettes!
 


Happy 2013!

From the archives!  Site activity should pickup sometime in the next few weeks as I get out of school and get settled into winter break mode.  There will be a whole lot more activity at the garage over the next few months so subscribe to the RSS or  check back frequently for a bunch of updates. For now here are some videos of the bear from the depths of my YouTube channel to hold you over until I get back to posting here.

Garage Renovation; The Final Chapter

posted Nov 15, 2011, 9:06 PM by Chris Agneta   [ updated Nov 15, 2011, 9:06 PM ]

After a severe lapse in updating the blog we have finally received the last part of the garage renovation from the body shop!
The Fridge
The Fridge is back!

After a long time with no cold drinks we finally have refreshment back in the garage.
 
Fridge at its home

We dropped the fridge back into its home and it fit right in with the new blue stripe, almost like it was supposed to be ;)

Desk Space
The new gasoline and rag storage space and the tool box relocated to the wall.

Wall of Plates
The license plate wall in full effect, looking good.

Parts Storage

Next we'll tackle the upstairs parts storage!




Renovating the Garage

Over the last month the garage has gone through a pretty extensive makeover. At some point we decided that it would be in everyone's best interest (for sanity reasons) to epoxy the floor and repaint the walls rebuild the work surfaces and re-organize the parts collection upstairs.

These are the before pictures, there was a fair amount of staining in the concrete, especially on the lift side and there are far too many parts and other randomness stashed all over.
So one day Kevin and I decided to go ahead and empty the garage out entirely so we could sort through everything and free up some space. From there our idea evolved past
the stages of cleaning and turned into something much more adventurous, we decided to do a total rebuild of the interior of the garage.


Once everything was out of the garage we decided to go after the floor first. We Swept the floor, then pressure washed, then brushed, then swept again, then etched, then brushed the etcher in, then pressure washed the etcher away, then rinsed, and swept a final time. Once that ordeal was complete the floor received a coat of primer, then once the primer was dry it got a coat of topcoat and finally Kevin applied the flake to the wet paint for the perfect finishing touch. We repeated this process three times over two days splitting one garage bay into a day and the other bay into it's own day, with a three day rest in between to let the other side dry enough to walk on.



As the center picture shows off the floor was now entierly painted and set and we are getting ready to do battle with the walls and work surfaces. You can see in the middle picture that we have already painted the concrete at the floor level to make the walls look more appealing, and we got the wall paint color matched to the concrete wall color we choose earlier in the project.
More on the painting and work surfaces coming up in a later post!

The Bear in August

Got the Go-Kart and the DS250 out today. Gave the Go-Kart a quick carb cleaning and then slapped the air cleaner back on it and set it free for some wonderful shenanigans.
Here's some highlights from todays riding.

I would say today was a pretty good break day after a long few days of working on the garage floor and cleaning everything.
