Exhaust extraction??
« on: 13 December 2020, 10:50:26 PM »
Does anyone use any sort of extension pipes (silicone hose or something similar) that you use to duct exhaust fumes out under your garage door or window, whilst you're working on your cars, or does anyone have any sort of extractor fans in your garage? ;)

Any recommendations?

When I had to work on a running engine in the days when I had a garage, I would park nose-in and leave the door open.

I second his idea. That's better in my case. Quite difficult to find reliable extractor fans these days

I might just end up doing that. Just thought I could get some extraction hoses and run them out of the back door of the garage. ;)
