    Good to know about the extra top coat - I don't think I need it but I can inquire about it.

    I was going to have them do my slatwall and some cabinets too but the pricing on installation was just insane - they charge a flat rate that works out to around $250/hr to install slatwall and screw together basic cabinets. They were also going to charge extra for delivery despite having to drive a box-truck my house anyway for the floor coating. I passed on all that and did it myself.

    Found a couple flaws in my floor too that they will be coming by to fix, but I don't imagine it will be an issue.

    By the way, the quality of these cabinets are really excellent and they were incredibly easy to build:

    Outstanding quality for the price IMO.

    I also bought one of these and it's a tank ($150 cheaper in-store as it weighs over 200lbs so shipping is crazy):

    I left the bottom shelf off and the rails left behind PERFECTLY hold 8 winter rims/tires securely upright. Now I don't need a tire rack.
    The product is called HP-100 and it was an extra 1.50 a sq.ft


    Whats the guage of the cabinets from CT? looks like a decent deal, decently wide.

    I noticed this as well from the contractor who did mine, they did a grey bottom coat, then a top coat of the light grey I wanted

    Thanks.

    I couldn't find a gauge listed anywhere, not even on the box, but I wanted a really big cabinet so this was perfect. Weight is 147 lbs if I recall. It's quite thick though and each shelf can apparently hold 300lbs with the bottom holding 400lbs (I personally wouldn't put that much weight on them but they are decent). Nothing is flimsy at all, in my opinion. The doors lock (top and bottom) and have magnets to keep them closed which is a nice touch. It's packed super well, nothing was bent, and every screw has a machined/threaded hole to go into so you don't have to fight it at all. Hinges are pre-installed on the doors. It also has that clearcoat type stuff over the sheet metal so it feels better and is more durable than simple powder coated metal.

    Mostly done making my 50x30' shop brighter. Here's a left vs right. Left are original florescent tubes. Right is the new LED stuff.




    And a video. I'd love to replace my pos black and decker cabinets with those metal ones posted. But I've committed my sticker game to my old cabinets already.



    LED lights used:
    4 LED tubes. 6 used per side. 2,360 lumens each. They include instructions to bypass the ballast used for the original florescents. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    8 LED tubes. 4 used per side. 12,500 lumens each. These are awesome! You can chain 3 together if you want.

    Too dark for a garage? Done previous garages in white and light grey so I wanted to go darker this time around. Have 8 1’x4’ LED panel lights going in so I don’t think it’ll be low on light.

    On the plus side it will be hard to see dirt on the walls with that colour. I have a buddy in Airdrie who has his garage painted in a similar shade of grey and I think its too dark. It makes the space feel small. But thats only IMHO.

    Medium grey looks classy.

    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins haggard face.
