The other type has all the same equipment stored in it but no room for a car much less two. The difference, while not always apparent, is usually a judicious use of shelves for home use and an ability to organize the things that go on them. Garage storage racks can be as simple as wooden shelves affixed to each wall or metal lockers with doors that close and keep all of the material out of sight.

There can be repairs that need to be done that you didn’t even know existed. You may think there’s a problem with the motor when in actuality it is just a loose wire or a sensor being accidentally covered over by a piece of debris.

The whole process starts with identifying which car to be retrofitted. The most suitable car to be converted into an Electric Vehicle (EV) should be light weight and has ample storage space. Generally, the weight of the car will determine the numbers of batteries to install and the mileage you can get per charge. With the current high local gasoline prices, many car owners are seriously exploring the idea of converting their car to run on purely electricity. Can an average person modify a car into EV at their home? It is possible if he has the right tools and the right instruction guide. This article will provide some information on the subject.

All of the existing fuel tank, fuel pumps, fuel lines, radiator etc are to be removed from the vehicle. However, the existing drive train such as the transmission, clutch system and drive shaft can still be used. The torque produced from the electric motor will be sufficient to propel a car forward to a substantial speed.

For most small jobs, such as changing the oil or replacing filters, changing the spark plugs and brake pads on your vehicle, general tools such as a wrench and a screwdriver are all that is required, and these are widely available in most hardware stores. It is a good idea to keep your automotive tools separate from other tools you may have, because if you begin a job and then discover that the tool you want to use is missing, it can cause major headaches.

Two saw horses with a sheet of plywood laid across them can be defined as a workbench. This design may be suitable for laying out drawings or holding a few tools, however without additional support it will not provide much more in the way of functionality or utility. Basic workbench design should include additional support structures and a strong worktop surface that will increase the load capacity of the workbench. The design may include support stringers, lower shelves, drawers, back and end stops, risers or any number of additional, specialty attachments.

As we discussed in our previous article "A Handy Guide on Shelving Systems for the Home Garage and Workplace", the thickness of sheet metal is called its gauge and the lower its gauge number is, the thicker the steel is. Steel sheet ranges from about 30 gauge to 8 gauge, with thinner 30+ gauge material called foil and thicker 8 gauge or less material called plate. Typical workbench supports range from around 12 to 16 gauge. Stringers and lower shelves add stability and strength to the legs and allow for heavier loads to be applied. They do this by connecting the legs together below the worktop and forming a rigid structure that helps support itself. Without additional support the workbench legs would easily fold under and collapse when weight is applied. The design may favor stringers alone if the workbench is intended to be used while sitting, allowing for the person’s legs to extend under the worktop. Lower shelves may also be incorporated into the design for storage below the worktop surface, and may be partial or full sized shelves depending on its use. Though load carrying capacities are frequently not listed on workbenches, a general rule of thumb is to use a thicker gauge steel support structure for heavier duty workbench applications.

Even an "off the shelf" electric motor will cost more than $800. With a Do It Yourself (DIY) conversion project at home, the whole process is substantially cheaper.

However, there are plenty of modern innovative shelves, hooks, bins, and containers that fit into pegboard. You can find these items at any home improvement center. You can use them for lawn and garden tools, household hardware, winter clothing, hand tools, etc. Pegboard is the most versatile type of organizer you can use. Basic pegboard is a little flimsy, but you can make it stronger by adding more supports when you mount it. You can also paint it to fit the theme of your garage. There are also other types of pegboard such as plastic and metal, which are available in different colors. Of course, they’re a little more expensive, but they’re also stronger, so you can use them to hold heavier items. No matter which type of pegboard you use, it’ll help you control clutter which is one of the most common problems in residential garages.

You don’t have to spend the extra added money when it can be easily avoided. If the door or glass in the actual garage door is broken then a repair person may be able to fix it on the spot. Glass repair is pretty simple to replace. If it’s more of a hole or a giant dent in the door then they might have to take it in to try and fix it. The least amount of work they would have to do on it would be to straighten out the dent enough so that it could be retracted and lifted into the open position without scraping the motor.

The Proper Car Lifting Equipment There are several different methods that can be used to lift or elevate your car enough so that you can work on its undercarriage. The prices for these different types of car lifting tools and equipment vary depending on quality, name brand, and weight capacity.
