Chevelle and Newport in the garage

This might not seem like a big deal if you haven't been in my garage before, but if you have you know how much work it was to make room for the new baby. Suffice to say it took a whole weekend's worth of blood and sweat - including building a new shed to store some things - to carve out a spot to work on the new car. Here I'm standing on the workbench at the front of the garage:

To the left is the smaller workbench where the drill-press, vise, grinder, and hardware all live; to the right are (temporarily) my telescopes... until I finally bite the bullet and build an observatory on the roof of the house. What you can't see near the Newport's front driver's-side fender, is a combo dehumidifier/AC unit that does a great job cooling the space and purging humidity.

This next shot shows a bunch of new shelving along the far wall, soon to be filled with Chevelle parts. There's actually plenty of room between the telescopes and the toolchest (and workbenches) in front of the Newport, but not as much as I'd like. This shot is taken from the doorway:

Wow, is the Chevelle smaller than the Newport, in every dimension.

And finally the rear view, taken while standing on some scrap wood at the (rear? but it's the main door...) corner of the garage. Notice the nice, big expanse of pegboard above the workbench in front of the Chevelle (past the ladder). Woohoo! More organization!

I'm hoping to do a bit more juggling of stuff from the shed onto the new garage shelves, then from the garage back into the shed. And starting this weekend: Off with the Chevelle's suspension!
