- Pit in my garage?
My dad has one – useful every now and again – but not for me now we have a van that won’t go through the door 🙁
They bought the house new and got the builder to leave an unfinished bit to the garage floor that dad then dug and concrete lined.
It always used to gather a few inches of water, but turned out it was wind blown rain tracking under the garage door. A bitumen coated strip of wood stuck to the floor behind the door blocked that and it now stays dry.
There are ready made plastic / grp mouldings that you can line them with – maybe easier than all the prep, shuttering, concrete etc?Posted 4 years agowoodsmanMember
I had the use of one in the 80’s, my cousin had one in his garage that we all helped dig. My Uncle fitted a water pump which did make it very usable. Yep, you need to think about water seepage – a fantastic bit of kit though for classic cars. A pit feels safer to work in than under a ramped/hoisted car for some reason. If you can do it, do it!Posted 4 years ago
