Show Us Your Modding Work Space

JDC442 Sunday, 3/6/2016

I posted a pic of my newly created home work space in the Pro Series GT Classic thread.  Then decided to make a video to bring the details of the space into focus.  The display case in the video features several of the builds that I've entered over the last few years -some successful and some not so much.

All of the FTE's that gave up their lives for the JDC442 Racing cause over the years

I owe a lot of my racing success to my wife who helped me acquire a large number of FTE cars for next to nothing.  She found a hobby shop that was going out of business back in 2012, selling all of their Hot Wheels for 2/$1.  I went right for the 2005/2006 tubs and was soon in FTE heaven.  The shop was over an hour south of where we lived, but I ended up going back three times just to be sure I didn't miss anything :)

Are you able to sell some of the donors such as the Lotus Esprits?

With some time off around the holiday weekend, I took some time to treat myself to a clean Hot Wheels project room. Long overdue. Don't underestimate the motivation rearranging and/or cleaning your space can provide.

...now I just need to organize my boxes and cases of cars!

It has taken quite awhile for me to get dedicated work space and track space. I am tuning the track so that I can mount it solid as I want to host a race this season.
