Every self-respecting car enthusiast needs a garage fit for their motor. Otherwise, you might as well take your chances and park it on the side of the street. That isn’t an option if you invest thousands of dollars on your car, something petrolheads do without a second thought. Pimping out a garage isn’t easy, and it isn’t cheap. But, it is essential if you want to keep your car safe and secure while you are at home. Here are a few tricks of the trade that might come in handy.
Extend It Outwards
Garages have a tendency of being small and cramped. The thing that a small garage is that there isn’t much room for your auto to maneuver. One slip of the wheel and you could scratch the paintwork. Or, the garbage you have stored could fall all over the exterior. There is no way that you can let this happen, not with all the money you invest in your car. The only way to solve this problem is to extend the garage. Then, you will have more space and won’t worry as much. In fact, you might be easily able to fit more than one car in the garage with space to spare.
Clean It Out
Speaking of garbage, there shouldn’t be any in your garage. As you know, it can cause damage to your car. But, it is also unnecessary because you can throw it out or store it elsewhere. Plus, you can’t pimp out a garage with an old fridge and a host of boxes in the corner. What would Xzibit say? Thankfully, it doesn’t take much to clean it out. With a few friends and a couple of free hours, you can do it all in one day. All you have to do is find another storage unit.
As far as some petrol heads go, they treat their car like their baby. That might seem a little extreme, but it isn’t if you are an enthusiast. Security is a massive issue, not least because there is a lot of money in your motor. An electric shutter and a deadbolt isn’t enough, which is why you need an alternative. Park Assist’s parking guidance systems have brilliant security features. Or, you can invest in security cameras if you prefer. There are even people that buy dummy cameras to scare off any thieves. That seems a little risky because if they do take the chance, you won’t have any leads.
No garage is truly pimped until it has a makeover. A makeover means that it needs a fresh coat of paint at least, as well as some accessories. It is always a good idea to go with bold colors for a definite change. As far as accessories go, nothing says pimped better than a huge set of speakers with a banging bass.
Don’t forget about your garage. A good garage is just as important as the car for all the reasons above.
