^^If they want to keep folks from storing their "project" toys in the front yard, I too have no problem with that. BUT telling you it's illegal to do a restoration/repair/whatever IN THE GARAGE is a different matter IMO.
An example.....yesterday I snapped the serpentine belt on my '94 S500 and had to get the car towed home. It's now parked back in the garage. I'm going to do the repair today and renew the coolant (which I will later take to the parts store for recycling.) Would that be considered a violation in light of the "toxic juices" I'm taking out of the car? One man's DIY is another's major repair. A couple weeks ago, I put new lower control arm bushings on my DD. That required the use of a press I have, a tool not commonly found in most homes. The car was also up on jackstands for 2-3 days. As far as I can tell, that's enough to be in violation because the press isn't a "commonly found tool."
If the door's closed, who is it affecting? I just see the ban as a bit of an overreach. If they want to enforce it evenly and logically, it's gonna have to be a lot less vague than I'm reading it now.
