        I finally tore apart the workbench and moved it out of the track room. An opportunity to clean up and re-organize.

        The bench as it used to be. Lots of holes were left in the walls. Oops. Me fix!

        The bench was moved into the basement kitchen. The drill press is now on the other side of the kitchen, and away from the slot car assembly area. A plywood back was added to the bench. Look wife… no more holes in the walls! (Except for the tire-rack on the right side)

        I can finally start building cars again. And finish the track room!

          Not only do I envy you having a track, now I wish I had  a proper work area.  My workbench is my office desk, my parts are in boxes in different rooms, and my cars are in a bedroom closet.

            Hi Gary,

            The track is new. The bench has been there for about 15+ years. I used to repair automated labellers, and all sorts of other equipment on it. It’s evolved as an unplanned retirement seems to be taking over. I’m simply going with the flow.

            If you have something challenging to do and the wife is giving you the evil-eye. Bring it over.

              With the bench out of the track room. We now have space for driver’s pit stations, pizza, and the whole enchilada!

              My breadbox finally has a home. The Hot Rod parking sign also fits the new spot very well.

                Lovely, although the R32 and S32 race directors will have to measure the space between racer pit areas to confirm there is sufficient elbow room… ;-)) LOL

                When are you going to hang some of the racing photos you have on the wall?

                Lights out and away we go…. Lookin good!!

                  Thank you very kindly, Gentlemen.

                  There are many holes left in the walls that need a little putty. The posters go up right after that. Probably later tonight or tomorrow. Thanks again for the posters, Jim!

                  Looks great Ken! Wish I could keep my work areas that clean and organized. I’ve tried but whenever I organize things I forget where they are 😉

                    Thank you, F1Nutz.

                    I’m really looking forward to inviting everyone over for an official race. It won’t be much longer.

                        Well Ken, ‘organizing’ my tuning room has been on my Agenda for…well, fuggetaboutit, a long time, so you inspired me to git er done, and I have!!

                        Still a ways to go, sorting parts/cars, organize tools, but WAAAAAY better(even MRS. Porsche911 impressed!) :>)

                        Thank you!!

                          Michael, Dave, Luis, and Drew.

                          I humbly thank you all for your kind words.

                          Drew. We all inspire each other in some way. I clearly need to work on my track decor, and Porsche 906 collection. Inspired by you, and the rest of the track owners. 🙂

                          Hey Ken, why limit yourself to 906’s…Consider the 908’s, 910’s, 914’s, 917’s and of course, the 911’s!!!   :>)
