Some Assembly Required – So Many Parts

After completing paint work on my 1963 Etype FHC restoration, I moved the body shell into a different garage for “mechanical assembly”. Basically, the rest of the restoration will occur in this garage, where I have it on a lift. In addition to the major components remaining to be installed, i.e. the engine, transmission, driveshaft, and rear suspension/differential, there are literally hundreds of smaller items that need to be installed. I was getting a little tired of pawing through boxes trying to find the next part I needed so I took this opportunity to do a garage reorganization, with an emphasis on those parts needed to complete the job. Those items of a decent size stayed on the storage shelves. But a host of smaller items were laid out on tables so that I could more easily find things as the need arose. Here are some overhead shots that I took of my parts. This is in addition to a large box with upholstery and another large box with chrome. BTW, the array of paper cups in the lower photo include dozens of nuts, screws, and bolts, all arranged by type and size. Phew, I’ve got my work cut out for me! I estimate another 1 to 2 years.
