Great picture of the most beautiful car ever created!!! Thanks for sharing!

Is your garage floor epoxy?

I have a project at my new house. Bought 4 post lift, AC, lamps etc but not sure what to do with the floor. Thought about White/ grey similar to this as epoxy.

Man, what a cool garage! I wish I had a space that big. I guess if I did, filling it with more cars than I have now. Would be hazardous to my bank account.

007JB - the exterior color is Marron Black which is black in the shade but turns a root beer color in the direct sun. The interior is Sierra Tan.

Zettinger - the floor is porcelain ceramic tile. I installed them about 8 years ago and have held up amazing.

How big's the space? 2x2 tiles? I've got 28 X 40, maybe I should do the same, but I'm afraid of the cost. But it does look absolutely great.


Pedantic, but.....it's Sahara Tan.

Yes they are 2'x2' tiles. My garage is only about 850 sq. ft. so not as big as yours. I found the tiles on eBay years ago and was not that expensive.

Sahara.... see what happens when you live in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Lol

They aren't out, yet. The "sold out" status just prevents people from being able to place orders.

Hey guys, this is my new V8 Vantage.
When I got collected it she was bone stock and a really tidy well maintained example and not grey so I was over the moon with my purchase.
The only downside was it was really quiet and not overly quick in comparison to my Porsche 996 C4S (not running standard power)
Pretty much straight away I booked it in for a custom remap and removal of the secondary restrictive cats to give it the exhaust note it was missing as well as a few extra ponies, these mods transformed the car!!
Stock power was 390bhp, cat removal 402bhp and custom software 425bhp.

Very nice, congrats and welcome to the forums

Those numbers are not wheel hp on a dyno, or are they? What year is your car?

What software did you use to tune the engine, and which high flow cats did you install. The Collection (Miami) has a self tuning package as well as the cats for approx $2600. With the added high flow air filters, they claim 465 hp on the 4.3 V8. I just ordered the BMC air filters and plan to do the same upgrades you just completed. Would like to see if you had a cost savings over what I found at the Collection.
