    Put some up on 2 walls of your garage. Paint it white. Go to Lowe's or Home Depot and buy a bulk pack of pegs. As you disassemble a section of your car, hang it up carefully on the pegboard on the "dirty" side of the garage. Get some organization bins. Hang them to the pegboard. As you take bolts off, put them in containers and label them. When you have some downtime from any major work. Grab a piece off of the "dirty" side and sand it down to get ready for paint. Once the piece is done to satisfaction, and ready for reassembly, put it on the other section of pegboard. If you do it right your wall will look like a model-kit you assembled as a kid.

    Nice way to organize the pieces.

    Is that an 80 or an 81 Z28 you have disassembled there?

    I thought they got a seven blade fan? :screwup:
    Or did non-AC models only get a five blade fan?

    It's an 80 Z/28. Not sure if the fan is original. I believe it is

    This is awesome, I did a pretty good job of keeping organized but did have to move things around a few times. Went to start installing my mirrors yesterday and one of the lenses was broken, now I have to buy 2 new ones because I can't have one shiny one and one slightly less shiny one.

    I've allway been a tag-n-bag the parts kind of guy. Worked pretty well.
    Your idea is genius!

    I like the idea......I am a box guy...I quadrant up the vehicle A=left front, B=center front..... etc....for the body. And or re-install the bolts back into their location once XXX is removed.
