Valley Motorwerks update and photos

The bulding is being painted and prepped for our logo. The first delivery arrived on Friday, new shoes for the "shop" car. I chose the equipment list for the shop as well:

Hunter R811-17 Aligner with DSP600 camera sensors
Hunter RX-9 scissor alignment rack for those REALLY low BMW's!
Hunter TC3500-SS tire changer
Hunter GSP 9712L7 balancer / vibration control machine
Dynojet 224X dyno with AFR

etc etc etc

This is getting expensive!

shop is huge! I hope you have enough mechanics to fill the place to keep it busy and make a profit. I dream of open a place like that someday

Look at all those awesome tools and machine. Am I able to clear the scissor alignment rack? 3 inch clearance sucks sometimes. So when do I get to drop by and check it out? A dyno would be nice.

Dyno is definately on the list! I bought the scissor lift with the extended ramps to make it easier for lowered cars. Eventually the lift will be installed in ground so a car with 0" clearance will be able to use it without rubbing.... Right now there isn't much to look at in a week or two you may want to drop by...
