Here's an idea :
Take a pic of an OCD garage, like nobby's, and mount it on the door of a slovenly garage, like mine.
Presto! A tidy-looking garage.

I've frequently championed the idea of getting back at that irksome neighbor by snapping a pic of the interior of his garage while the door was open, having it blown up onto a graphic and then applying it to the garage door after he leaves in the morning.

Loads of laffs when he drives into his garage at the end of the day!

BTW, this is the actual site:
The world of garage-billboards!
They do regular doors too.

A delivery trucks where my wife works have graphics on the rear door which show the door open and products they sell stacked in the truck.

It was really cool until the state cop pulled them over concerned about the open door, then looked until he found something to ticket the driver for to cover his embarrassment.

No more similar graphics are planned. :D

Sorry Dugald... Doesn't appear to be an OCD garage to me, but at least he squeezed in the SL. :D

What's wrong with this picture?

Snow at nobby's home in Canada.





Snow at Dig's home in the land of pleasant living.

You gotta see the racks of parts bins on the back wall. A place for everything and everything in its place. Definitely OCD.
In mine, things are randomly tossed in coffee cans and I haven't actually seen the top of my workbench in years.

Oh... I hate people that neat. OTOH, that's the kind of tech I'd prefer working on an aircraft I was flying in. :thumbsup:

My garage/barns are more like yours sounds.

There are those people that lie awake nights wondering whether anal-retentive is hyphenated.

The rest of us can only aspire to such greatness. :D

I spend more time looking for my tools than using them.
I have three of everything and can find none.

I can find most of mine, except for the 10mm, 13mm and 17mm wrenches/sockets.

Must go and by another set :(
