I saw this place online. A DIY Garage located in Baldwin park and open to the public which rent bays, lift, tools and equipments so you can work on your own car. It looks like a good solution for many problems when working at home, such as cant find the right tool or need part when you are half way through the job.
This is their website and you can see some picture on their facebook page: Your Dream Garage

Interesting idea. I feel like people would take advantage, and steal tools, break things, etc.

its pretty much just like the auto hobby shop aboard camp lejeune. you've got to sign out any tools you use and if its missing when you go to check out you get charged. very good way to keep people from stealing shit. :D
these types of garages are really pretty awesome, if there was one near me (besides the tiny one aboard the little base here) i would definitely work on my shit there if i needed specialty tools.

Even if you work on your car in the garage all of the time, places like these can be helpful. Doing something like exhaust etc is soooo much easier on a lift. I used one on post before and it wasn't too bad. A couple of dollars got me a lift for an hour or so and tools. Plus the dudes working were happy to give some advice.

This would be so great to have, but I don't recall seeing any DIY shops in the NJ area. I remember there was one a long time ago (more than 20 years ago) but they are long gone.

If they are around, it's a great place to work on your car, especially if your tools are limited. Back when I was in the Army I was there about every weekend.

I know a few people who don't have a garage or shop to work on their cars who use these places all the time. Pretty cool
