    That is a beautiful track. You workmanship is very impressive. If I can ask, where did you purchase the vinyl netting material.

        Update 01/19/22:
        Work continues on my current track. I've got the guard rails up and currently working on retaining wall sponsor logos.

        I decided to go with E3 spark plugs instead of the more common Shell logo here.

          I have pictures of the old Aurora stickers that went on their white fence with 60's advertiser names. If I can locate I'll add it to this post. Click image for larger version

            Thank you very much for sharing this photo of the old Aurora fence/track advertisements!

          I have a bunch from the old SCI board that were posted several years ago. I will dig them out tonight. They are what I used for my carousel wall.

            Chappyman - I agree with you, the banner wall logos from the old SCI board are great. I archived the files and resize and print them all the time for different signs/banners on my track. Good suggestion if folks are looking for logos for barriers.

          The vintage banners look good. But I'm downloading and making good use of the vinyl
          ​​​​ cutter.

              Update 03/07/22:
              Well, I'm back at it. I had a few things that had me sidetracked for a bit, nothing serious which is good.
              I finally got started on the garage, I'm going to add lights, tool boxes and more to the inside.

              I also came up with an easier way to make brick walls.

              The old way took time as I had to measure and to scribe the mortar lines to create the brick look.
              I had a friend 3d print a brick roller. I simply roll it over a piece of extruded foam.

              It does take some pressure to get it to work. I'm going to have him make another smooth roller or just cut a wooden rolling pin to size. My plan to make it so I can just feed it through the two rollers, kind of like an old school washing machine wringer. Heck, I might even make it motorized, stay tuned.

                Texture rollers are another good use of 3DP. Pretty cool.

                  Update 3/10/22:
                  Working on creating a few tool chests. I'm using extruded foam and they seem to look ok. I would think some craft beads should look good for the wheels. I also might ask my friend who created the brick roller to see if he can create a few of these for me.

                    WOW!!. I just saw this thread and Wow!. Great looking track.
                    stumbled on the thread at the toolboxes made from extruded foam and then went back thru to the beginning of the track build. talent to make it look great.

                      I've been busy in the garage loft with the conversion from the slot car area to wood /craft shop area. I finally got the Onefinity CNC up and running and have built my first project this week.
                      This is one of 3 driver stations that I created, I was never a fan of the screw stems hookups that stick out and so I came up with this idea. I used bottle caps as covers for the hookups, it also has a tire cleaning area. I plan to finish lanes 1 and 3 this week along with the controller bracket.

                        Are those independently powered test strips per driver's station? Do tell...

                      I’m with you on the screws sticking out. Excellent idea so simple yet so effective 👍

                        Wrangler#3, the tire cleaning area is tapped into each lane and can be controlled independently. I was going to have them all powered by a 12v adapter but thought it would be better this way. I did leave the brake wire off as well.
