Tried to go for a catchy thread title. Should have posted on Halloween but was concerned what festive ideas I'd get.
I'm looking for storage ideas for body parts (FJ80, not dead hookers ;)). I'm thinking of making a rolling cart thing for the doors and fenders. I'm curious to hear what y'all have going for part storage.
I'd love to build a shed, but that's a few months to a year out

I wait for them to rust, then sweep up the pile.








I actually don't own an 80, with my 40 I had bodies parts scattered around my basement. I was pretty lucky to have the extra storage space available.

Now I'd be hosed for a place to store body parts in my new house, maybe I could justify a new workshop out back.

Parts go inside of parts vehicles, isn't that how they got the name? :p

In 2010 I tore apart my '87 mini truck for a full-on restore. At one point in 2011 I realized there was nothing left to take apart, it was as far apart as I could get it. Bare frame in the garage. I built a cradle to put the cab on with casters so I could move it around.

When I stored it over the winter, the fenders and door went into the cab. Hood went into the bed that sat on my homemade utility trailer:
