hahahah .... Sepias... I didn't do the patch work.. a friend did.. I just did the rest

sonic it's a garage not a family room

couldn't wait to get rid of that junk plastic that was on there from the salvage place (good thing it was trashed before I went down with it LOL) some of it is still usable for stunters though other parts will get thrown up on ebay for sure...

hahaa... well the other 3 walls have wood tongue and groove slats up and trimmed out... just never felt the need to paint the drywall instead I paint my bike It sure was nice having the heat in there too for doing it.. started out in the pole barn but quickly moved into the garage

the bike is looking good. Off topic, my parents bought their house brand new 16 years ago and the garage still has that unpainted drywall up!
