    It is really my basement, but it works. In the process of restoring a 79 and it has been slooooow...A business got in the way at some point along the way. Now back at it and still loving it. Working on the transmission and transfercase now. Putting all new seals and gaskets in. Just finished the rear main and need to bolt up the oil pan. These are a couple of shots of the transfer case and transmission, along with my home made hoist that is currently supporting the rear of the motor. Cleaning the TC was a realy PITA, but I am glad I did it. Transmission is next. Have a good day...Phone pics so sorry for quality

    It will not be too big to get it out but I may have 2 of everything blocking the way to get it out. I started breaking it down in 2000 in Dothan, AL and it has since moved with me twice. Once to Birmingham and then to another home in B'ham. So with that I am sure I have misplaced a few small but necessary items. I guess we will cross that bridge when we get there.

    Be sure to add a t-case saver before the reinstall!

    No kiddin' Kroll. We were considering moving to a neighborhood with two car main level garages and I just could not come to grips with it. I would love the main level, but could not give up the basement or some sort of shop in trade. I could really care less about TV and other time consumers of the like, but put me in the cave with something to tinker or work on, a few cold beers and time just flies by.

    i think the guy your thinking of built a handmade lambo in his basement and they knocked out a wall when he finished it like 10 years later.

    i wish i had that nice of a work area, i have a 1 stall garage which is occupied by alot of my dads crap. so i have just enough room for the vehicle and have to squeeze around 3 of the 4 sides of the vehicle, and the other sides just slightly better to get around
