Garage door

Has anyone tried to cut in a window in an insulated garage door? I bought a solid door, and now I want at least one window to peak out of. Anyone done it? Where did you get the window?

Get one of those porthole windows from a ship that have the cover on them, than you can see when you want to see. Gives you time to put away the "secret" sruff. Dan

Dinger might be onto something in terms of "privacy". How about just a simple peep hole like the ones used on entry doors. You can see out, they can't see it.

Leave it to Dan to come up with something perverted!!! I wouldn't respect him if he didn't !!

Dewey, you should see this guy in a ,uh, um, establishment of the "clothing optional" variety! ROFLMAO!!!


I'm thinking like a 6" porthole (like Dan mentioned) for 2 reasons.
1.) To see if someone is coming in the driveway at a glance
2.) So my buddies know I'm in the back shop, so they can stop in.

The shop doors are solid, so no one can see if the lights are on.

And my shop is like a meeting hall for all the delinquent rodders, sledders, 4 wheelers, racers, etc. so I get a TON of visitors. Cable TV, Beer, comfortable chairs, super smart host (and modest too), new projects all the time... why wouldn't ya stop?

Dan-
I just saw that you started a journal ! That 36 looks MINT ! COOL!

Those houses are so close, I bet the neighbors KNOW when you had Taco Bell for lunch !

OK perverts aside
Call the door maker and see if you can buy a new panel with glass. It should be cheaper than a new door and I would be worried about trying to put anything not made for a door in ther and having it come crashing down on your car.

Install a big sign outside that says "Come in, let's drink some beer" that has a switchside which reads "Leave me alone, go home". Then all you need is a switch in the inside of the garage, flick it and electronically it'll switch the sign to the other side.

Hey Beenaway you have HomeDepot or Lowes in or near Syacuse, I'f I'm not mistaken, they have replacememt windows for doors, just make sure you know how thick the door is and I think you should be able to get one.

Where did you get your 65 Malibu, looks just like my buddies old one?

Iroc-
Are you from Albany? The car was in Clay for a while, too. Could be the same car. A guy came up to me this summer and told me all about it. Right down to the touchy brakes. New power disks are slated. I have them in the shop, just need time to install. I wish they would have color sanded or wet sanded before doing the graphics. Surface looks like Oprah's butt with all the orange peel.
Its got a new 350/330hp crate and th-350 in it now. Its much happier.

Its gotta be! I talked to the guy that did the graphics, and have his card. I can't remember for the life of me, who it is. Nice work, though! Again, just wished it would have been wetsanded first.
When I finish the 39, its going to get a new paint job. There are a few more pics in my Gallery and Project Journal.

Home Depots have a wireless security camera and monitor for $99. Get one of those and a Walk/Don't Walk light or a Traffic Light for the front of the garage. Red = your out, Yellow = be right back, Green = beer's cold, come on in.

In a previous shop, we just cut some glass and installed with the kind of rubber they use for pickup rear windows and the like.

name sounds familiar! Had an old power glide w/ floor shift/console. Still has floorshift/console. Motor was a 2bolt 350 out of a 73 California smog Camaro or Nova. Nothing special with the heads, and Harland Sharp roller rocker arms. Pooch motor.

Kevin-
I have on of those for the house. Not really thrilled with it.


Traffic light has merit....

What don't you like about it. I was really considering getting one and was looking at them last week. The one I looked at was black and white. I have also seen wired camera (H.D. had the wireless) and I have seen a few pop ups on th enet that shows color monitors and three camera for around $250. I would like to have something to where I can see the garage from the house.
