    Do you have a garage? If the trans is empty of juice & TC is not installed. Store it standing on the bell housing. Make a little dolly or buy one so it is easy to move. Either way the dolly helps to move it when you need to. Try to stand the hood against a wall on some blocks of 2x4 with a piece of carpet or rag to cushion. Do the same with the fenders. Hang the grill on the wall. Z2880 said on the car. That is the best place.

    Years ago, when I was often working on two or three cars at a time, I'd store the engines and transmissions under a work bench I made that had openings under it large enough to roll an engine on a furniture dolly under. I'd brace it with 2X4 scrap. The same with transmissions. I eventually bought a couple of engine stands but the cheap dolly and scrape worked good enough.

    I hung my fenders on hooks in the basement. My hood went up on a shelf hanging from my garage ceiling

    Hell, store that rusty gold wherever you can!! Here's a heavy duty craftsman shelf I have, probably the most organized place. But I got stuff in the attic, under the work bench, in the car... :rolleyes: the 73 has quite a few parts in it, lol. "Yes dear, I plan to use ALL the parts eventually" :D

    Need to move things around to get to the cart carrying the rearend, think about a 4 wheel moving dolly.
    Also started using plastic totes and adding a list in the top of the box so I don't have to dig through it.

    Mav, You of all people should understand. When someone wants a part, it really helps if you can find it... :rolleyes: :D
    By the way, except for the hoods and doors, that's all in a 700 sf free-standing loft above my shop space...
