Are there any heavy duty cabinets that will hold heavy tools and car parts that look good for garage? A couple of my cheap-o cabinets have fallen apart and I really need to do something here.

I have Gladiator and they are sturdy but they aren't going to hold a lot of really heavy stuff - like an engine block or several heads...

Those look pretty solid, nice looking shelfs. How are they fastened to the wall?
You first mount a hanger strip to the wall , trying to catch at least three studs , then lift the cabinet up and onto it. The cabinet has 4in. wide hooks on the back that hook into the hanger strip. You then add two or more screws thru the back of the cabinet and into the studs for added security.
In my case , I had to use anchors made for block to mount the hanger strip.

Build your own like I did, I have cabnets all around my garage
Nice work. You know there are companies that will come out and build the cabinets for you also. My neighbor just had his entire garage worked over and it turned out incredible. We might have to do just the same. :hehehe:
