04/01/2014 - We outgrew our 30 Foot Wide X 36 Foot Deep X 14 Foot High service garage so it was time to expand. We also needed a better place to park all the customer cars that are constantly being dropped off, even when we tell customers we have no space or time to get to it anytime soon, they just show up with a car on trailer and drop it off. LULz...
So, to help with parking, we had a 28 Foot wide X 36 Foot Long concrete pad poured in front of the existing 30 Foot Wide X 36 Foot Long Service Garage.
Now we have a nice place to park customer cars when the garage is full.
At the same time we also had a 30 Foot Wide X 41 Foot Long Monolithic Fiberlass reinforced Concrete mix foundation addition poured at the back of the existing service garage, which is identical to the original Ninja Performance Service Garage Floor plus an additional 5 feet long.
This was in preperation to the Ninja Performance Service garage Expansion. Once we allowed the concrete time to cure, and like the first original section we watered it down two or three times a day and kept it covered at times to help hold in the moisture to make sure the concrete would set as strong as possible.
Once it had time to cure, a new steel 30 Foot Wide X 41 Foot Long X 14 Foot High addition was added to the existing garage,
transforming the Ninja Performance Service Garage to 30 Foot Wide X 77 Foot Long X 14 Foot High. Making the Ninja Service Garage 2310 Sq Ft, bigger than our house, bigger than most average peoples houses.
Finally some breathing room. With the more than double space increase we were able to move shop equipment like our 40 ton press, parts washer, blasting cabinet, Air compressor etc to the new back portion of the Service Garage. This allowed us space to finally add a second 2 post 4 arm 9000 pound lift that we have been needing for years.
Every service garage owner hates having the all too often Service Garage scenerio - a car on a lift, engine out and torn down, block is waiting at machine shop maybe for weeks, so the lift is tied up but it is a huge hassle to pull a no engine, no axle etc car off a lift to get use of the lift.
Problem solved, sorta. Now it is TWO cars on TWO lifts waiting for the machine shop. Still beats a 1 lift shop. We still can lift the cars, pull another car under it to do work that does not require a lift.

02/01/2013 - After the Battle of my life, and for my life, I am now recovering from a bone marow transplant I had on 8/1/2012. I am doing better than expected and have had the great oppurtunity to not only continue to supply parts to 3000GT/Stealth enthusiasts, but also start doing what I love. Working on them. Rebuilding them. And making them fast. As well as work on my beast and take her to the track for more 1/4 drag racing record breaking!
Here are some images of customer cars and service work we have been doing. Click on images to view larger image.
