    Displaying Blues

    I began the task of displaying cars in the race room ( Vault). It's where I keep all my high end cars an protos and doors, rare sets. The room has blacknout curtains and stays closed off. Its my sanctuary with my TV and computer desk. Wow,began the task of unscrewing the diecast placing them in displays. Holy hell at 6:00 this morning after spending since 10:00 the night before. I only have a few select that I have ARC that are doubles to put up out in the open. But will say. After seeing some of yalls collection rooms. This is time consuming as hell. And thank you to yall giving me ideas. Am finally having fun seeing the cars and not the boxes they are in. Glad I have a man cave storage next door. I will be filling it soon with the boxes! But it's been fun. We have a great and fun hobby!

    Also,word of warning. My wife bought me the helmet display cases from Michaels. Don't buy them. Two were busted. And they didn't even bother to tell her. And they come shrink wrapped. And once you cut off the shrink wrap that's when pieces of the inside border securing the glass fall loose. Buy the car and helmet displays from Lionel. I wanted the cabinet look. Well we are regretting it now. Spent an hour fixing just one.

    Man I am gonna have to buy another screwdriver. This is crazy. But it's comming along good. Have to go for more individual display cases. And pick up more side slat platforms and standard slant. Pole Night is gonna love me,lol
