I'm tired of seeing perfectly organized workspaces posted online, so here's your challenge:

Drop what you're doing, take a photo of your shop/garage/parking spot/etc. (wherever you work on your car), then post it here. No cleaning or rearranging allowed. Let's see how everybody REALLY works.

Here's the portion of the garage that I mostly work in.  As such, it's the least cluttered



Taking a picture from there...

I dream of someday having my shop space as clean as what some of you consider "messy".

Props to your organization. The homemade bench in front the bike is awesome. My disaster area will be shown after work.

We just finished moving from SC on Saturday so it's a mess, shelving/pallet racking and come cabinets are going to be needed before it gets cold up here.

Nobody has a shop larger than mine. Here's my 4Runner in my shop, which extends to infinity in one direction (up).

It's a Titan SL-6600 sicssor mid-rise lift.  Bought it after seeing AccordionFolder's and it's the best $1700 I've ever spent!

I got tired of working in clutter, so I keep it pretty clean  


 

and just so you don't think I picked the good side

I'm pretty good about cleaning up my shop between projects and I just did it last night so right now it looks pretty much like this.

Here's a messy bench with three projects going on at once.

I'm checking to see if the new Chinese digital scale has the same output as the ones I designed the DRO on my lathe around (they don't), I've got a Holley carb rebuild going on and apparently I've got a cylinder head apart.  FE Ford perhaps?

Here's a messy shop picture for you.  This one was taken while I was building the engine for my Crossle

my 500 square foot shop. From each corner so you can see just how much is crammed into the space.
