Oh boy, how’d you like to wrench in that garage? I lifted the pic from garage supplier Garage Living, and I assure you, if that clinically-clean, impeccably-styled garage could be where I twirl Harbor Freight’s finest, I would be exactly as pumped as that stock-photo guy I dropped in there. I think I searched “Man losing his mind with happiness” to find him over at Adobe Stock, and gash-dang if he isn’t just about perfect.
Sadly, the odds of me acquiring such a space are even slimmer than the chances of me owning a 911 Carrera S like the one parked therein. But hey, I’m happy to have any garage, even if being in there is currently like walking into an air fryer (I’m in Texas, so … yeah). Just walking across the garage-oven to switch on the sprinklers is enough to make me want to run in those sprinklers, so actually working on a car in there–especially one that’s been running–is not the greatest. Indeed, working outside would probably be cooler (less hot, anyway), and the great outdoors has long been host to many automotive projects. See our pal on Twit–uh, “X”– Willie D Jenkins, master mobile mechanic, for many examples of doing whatcha gotta do:

Wrenching Wednesday goes wherever you want to take it, but to kick off this edition let’s talk wrenching spaces–where you work on your rides now, where you’d like to in the future, the tips and tricks you use to make your space more pleasant and productive … all that stuff. As for me, I still smile every time I flip the light switch in the garage and every shop light comes on instantly and silently. I swapped fluorescent tube jobs for LED units each time one of those buzzy bastards died off, and man, getting rid of the last one was a treat.
