This guy is an inspiration. I’ve seen him and his garage in a few other forums and it pretty well encapsulates how satisfying DIY work can be for car enthusiasts. He is literally a part of that 911 from all the work he put in. I’m sure that workshop is full of both treasured accomplishments and a lot of unprintable swearing when “simple” jobs turn out to be not so simple lol. Cheers.

Alright, this guy is awesome and that garage is fantastic. But anyone else notice that dude not wearing any eye protection doing metal work? lol

For those of us who wrench on our own cars hearing Jack speak of working within one’s limitations is a great point. Most of us are not engineers nor expert fabricators so when we get an idea for a new tweak be it simple or complex and then bring it to fruition the feeling of accomplishment is one of the best things about the “hands on” part of driving tastefully. Knowing your limits can lead to some very creative solutions.

Jack was the biggest inspiration behind my garage setup and why I modeled my work areas and layout after his.

Unfortunately I’m considered dangerous with tools and machinery, but admire those with the talent. Do use Jack’s corner-by-corner guide to Willow Springs constantly as a kind of tool. Does that count?

Once again, I am inspired to setup my garage… oh where to begin. Perhaps Lot’s of Red Bull to get started.
Thank you Jack–Well Done!

Like I have always believed and preached and Jack is excellent example. It is not great tools that make an exceptional craftsman but an exceptional craftsman that makes any tool greatl
