I thought I would take this time of social distancing to really clean up and paint my shop/club room. I spent the last three days scrubbing the ground in dirt out the linoleum tiles. The room is now ready for a paint job. See images below

While preparing to paint, I had to remove all of my models and slot cars from the cabinets. Just for fun, I lined the ones we run and a few that we don't on my track and snapped some images. See below

Lane length about 90 ft. 4.5 inch lane spacing. I built the track around 2006. Thanks, I am glad you like it. For track specs and tour see the link http://slotblog.net/...pictorial-tour/

Rich, that looks great.  A bunch of us will be by around 6pm.   Do we need to bring pizza!   !!!!!   

 

What a shame that as a group we are all so spread out.

We will have to run a virtual race due to social distancing

Finally after a few weeks, the paint project is finally finished. It is hard to tell from the images that there is much of a change but in person I really see a difference. See below
