Tight Fit

Anyone got any tips on safe entry into a rather narrow garage ( mirrors in ) without any heartbreaking incidents?

The tennis ball on a string works pretty well with a dot decal on the windscreen for a sight. Looks like the same size garage I had in Bury St Edmunds, except the TR is much wider. Had a piece of foam rubber on the wall so I could get out. How do you get out of the TR? Does not look like enough room to open the doors.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Angle in on the off side, if you can. Foam on the wall really helps.

Carefully place mirrors mounted on the wall somewhere would help so you can see both sides from the drivers seat. I might even consider mounting some 2 x 4s to the floor to use as tracks to keep the car centered if its really tight.

When a friend of mine that drag raced moved into his new house he had me come over. After he got the car and trailer backed into the garage exactly where he wanted it he opened his drivers door and made a mark on the jam of the truck and spray painted a mark on the driveway. Every time he would back the trailer in he would just line up the mark on the truck with the mark on the driveway.
