Garage Parkers! How do you stop?
I'm thinking of either getting a tennis-ball to mark off where I need to stop, or I'm looking at one of the garage-floor mounted wheel stops. What's everone else use?

I just figure out where it would be best at then i look out both side windows and find something that wouldnt be moving and i tell myself you need to be lined up with this object. like now i use the mower out the side of the passenger window and say that i need to be lined up with the middle of the seat. then that gives me pleanty of room to walk all the way around the vehicle if id have to1994 GMC Yukon, 2 door, Victory Red

Tahoe doesn't get garage luxury, but when parking my dads car I try to do pretty much what @1953bowtieguy does or if the orange home depot bucket in front of the car I use that and if I tap it I know I'm in perfect.

Ya i think everybody lines up with some thing in the garage. and conlan my yukon dont really get parked in the garage either that is mostly my moms 97 chevy pickup extended cab. mine usually gets in if its going to hail or if im working on it like right now. im taking the engine out of it now to either rebuild or replace.

Same situation only during bad storms or being fixed. Usually my dad's Insight gets the garage. Have fun with the rebuild keep me posted.

ya im not sure if i want to rebuild it yet or get another engine. If id rebuild it i would prolly turn it into a 383 stroker with a hydrollic roller cam and lifters in it. But then if i get a new engine from GM Preformance I would just get a 350 for about 2200 or 2500. And no matter what i need to replace my oil cooler lines cuz they leak like a siv. and i would paint the valve covers red, maybe get hooker headers, hopefully i can get a cold air intake for her and a throttle body spacer. Also since she is in the garage i was going to replace my grille cuz i dont like it anymore. im going back to the painted grille, maybe billet. dont know yet just want the chrome one gone.

2 nails, some string, and a tennis ball are cheap and it's a reliable system.
