    No it's not Mike's shop, and the sheet metal shop guy doesn't own a hotrod either. But he likes them, and always treats me good, so I keep referring him to anyone I know who needs metal bent. Only thing he ever asks is, "Do you have your own metal?"
    That's because all his metal is galvanized, so we need to bring ours to have him bend or cut it.

    Well my son got me off my arse and we pulled the 12 bolt outta the 35 Chevy today. Wasn’t bad with someone working on the other side at the same time. I kept looking around under there and said to myself, who the heck engineered this thing. LOL. Actually everything came out in methodical fashion. Slid out the rear to the side and I said where the heck are we gonna work on this thing? I really neglected clean up around the shop. I have 4 boxes and 2-5 gal buckets of scrap metal. Some new some used. I’m such a hoarder. Stuff has to go. I almost sold my 3 speed setup from the MG. Buyer backed out from outta state and there it sits on my bench and on the floor.
    what a pain. I gotta dig out my old 456 gears I had in the first install. I bought an install kit 4 mos ago when I did the MG rear.
    I will be taking a while before I tear it apart. Cleanup is a must before I disassemble the rear. More to follow.

    Wouldn't it be nice to have one of those monster sized shops where we could store 6 cars, and have room to work on 6 more? Getting things done in tight quarters isn't much fun.

    I just put a big dent in my cleanup part A. Can’t wait to start clearing the bench. I haven’t seen it in years. Lol

    Your bench looks easier to get to than mine, and easier to clean off too!!

    Yep

    Mario, that is almost as bad as mine was. It got so crowded that I ended up putting a 3'X4' piece of plywood on a couple saw horses so I'd have a work space; even the tops of my washer and dryer were covered with parts and other crap. I spent both Saturday and Sunday last week end cleaning up, putting away and throwing away a bunch of stuff. In the back of my brain somewhere I'm just knowing that in the not to distant future I'm going to need some obscure part I threw away; but at least now I can walk into my garage without tripping over parts and I have a pretty accessible work bench again. I didn't use to be like this. My garage was always neat, clean and orderly. When I was done for the day I'd clean my tools, put everything away and clean up the work area, even if I wasn't done with the job I was doing and would be getting back after it the next day. It seems like like one day I just got lazy and started saying "tomorrow".

    When I have to choose between working on my cars, or cleaning the work area, the cars usually win out. Then it gets where I start tripping over things and work goes too slow, so I stop and do a deep cleaning to make more room.

    I looked over every scrap before canning it. It was killing me. I threw out 4 boxes of 1/2 filled scrap metal. I should be able to see the bench some time tomorrow. Lol

    I went up into my garage attic and looked all over for my used 456 gears that I had in the rear the first build. I found 3 boxes of parts. 1 unused install kit, and 2 kits with shims galore. All Richmond stuff. Not to mention I bought another new one last summer when I bought the MG stuff. I forgot I had that stuff upstairs. But no gears in sight. I finally thought to look at the old carrier and bingo there they were. The gear was still on the carrier and the pinon was wrapped with a rag. All looks pristine.
