    Dollars to donuts thats a real steel hood. And it's art, too!

    I like what you did, but couldn't do those walls because they'd get dented and then ruin the whole look or I'd have to replace the dented panel.

    I have been struggling with what to do with the interior walls, that looks real good. Think it will work without the sheet rock behind it? Getting tired of seeing the pink in my shop.

    I threw up 3/4 wood sheeting. It cost a bit, but i can run the compressor and it is barely heard on the other side of the wall. On top of that, i can screw anything anywhere without it pulling out.

    You beat me to it...That hood is art!

    Love the clean look and if somethin catches fire...;) j/k

    I would use 1 X 4 sleepers at 2' horizontal to secure it to the studs otherwise 11/32" CDX plywood would work in place of sheetrock.

    I'd put up, and 1st coat drywall before anything. After getting any wiring, or plumbing out of the way...

    Update - Flooring and LED lighting Finished

    Finally finished the floor this fall. I ground the entire 800 sqft on my hands and knees. A lot of work but necessary for good prep and adhesion. I used SW Macropoxy as a base then 100 lbs of colorflakes and covered it with Armorseal HS Urethane. Ended up ok but had some areas that we will have to touch up next summer. A couple of tricks, have 2 people or more help, thin the macropoxy to keep it wet longer so the flakes stick and then thin the urethane with mak to help it roll out better.

    Installed LED strips from behind the cedar strips. Looks great a night and you can change colors for parties or flash the lights to the music!
