So big day lots of moving. But it's at my new place. Won't be doing to much to it for the next couple weeks because of moving and all but it's here and in the garage and I'm extremely excited!!!!

Having a dry place to work on it near home is always better.

It's a tight fit that's for sure! But I'll take the big tires off and out small ones on for rollers so I can get it out when the suspension work is done

Tight fit is right. Not much room in mine either. But happy to have a garage. Looks like you'll have some room to work at least.

+1 for using Datsun clamps on your Chevy hose.

Do a little bit every time you have a chance, better that than to burn out trying to get it done all at once.
