Looks like fun to refurbish the shop and get it ready for some new projects. The high ceilings are a big plus. Enjoy.

They would be loaded on a lift/pallet that drives up to the rack and then rolled off.

Bill, the room through the garage door is the machine shop area. I only need about a third of it for my machines, got to decide what to do with the rest of it.

You can see the plates for ramps to be installed. Drive them up there.

Seems like it be a lot of work to take your car out for a Sunday drive. But then again maybe these don’t go out for drives, sadly

That would need to be a very long and sturdy ramp. Those stand offs are used for vertical stop plates, to prevent a vehicle from rolling off too and are just bolted. Not sure I would trust that arrangement to hold the weight of a car ??

I had a new pad, so I'm unsure about prepping the old one, but I acid etched mine and used a product from Sherwin Williams called Armor seal. I've had it on there almost two years now and the only places where it has come up is where a piece of steel or heavy tool hit the floor hard enough to chip the concrete. It's easy to clean, chemical resistant, and isn't too slippery when wet. I went with a color called steel grey i think and it's light enough to brighten the shop up. Good lighting makes all the difference in working in there as well. I have 7, 21,000 lumen lights in my 40x60. They were about $100 a piece on amazon but are on sale now.
