    If you had the space and money, what would be the one piece of garage equipment you would love to have in your garage?

    Me? I would love a spray booth.

    A spray booth would be good but I'd really like a rolling road and full remapping/diagnostic tools so I can play with my cars setup myself!

    A pit and a hoist.

    And carpet.

    And if someone could keep it tidy that'd be great.

    A four poster has got to be the ultimate shirley!? That's what I'd want anyway, and a garage big enough to actually have one.

    Spray booths come with extraction units and I have the spray equipment :)

    It is amazing what you can find to do with a compressor once you have a decent one :)

    Has to be a proper ramp - does a higher garage roof count as two ?

    Two poster ramp for me, more access than a four poster. Failing that I'd have Edd China in my garage. :amuse:

    That's a bit harsh isn't it? I would trust him more so than any so called mechanic at any given dealership. I have seen my fair share of bodged jobs from trained mechanics. Hence why I do not trust garages and do 99% of my own work wherever possible. Not saying all mechanics are like this but the bad ones tend to tar the good ones with the same brush I'm afraid. I have had run-ins with a few and had to educate them. Being a time-served toolmaker and degree qualified engineer is not the best person to be ripping off when you have to use a dealer for specialist work. But that's another story! Sorry to go off topic.

    Anyway there is a difference between bodging and working to a budget :blink1:

    Did you ever see the Cosworth they had on?
    That was one that was just well bodged together.
    An enthusiast ended up buying it and wasn't happy with the work they'd done.
    I'll try an find where I read about it.

    Yea I remember the Cosworth and it was a dog to start with. Never heard the story of what happened after though. They did alot of work on it I recall, didn't they swap over the interior and also headwork and bumper respray? Probably needed more tbh and neglected to mention it. Mike Brewer is not exactly a saint though is he, I wouldn't buy a used car off him!
