Default Parts storage

I've put up some 1/4 inch peg board in the stair well to my storage room in the attic. The stair well is pretty long as the ceiling is 12 feet tall. I put as many car parts as I can so at least I can see them. You may have guess, my storage room is full of car parts as well. I have three sets of stacked tool boxes as well for parts. I did sheet rock the room and have AC up there as well. I'm putting peg board in my mechanical room for more storage.

One thing you want to do is inventory all your stuff.

When you have nothing else to do, inventory, arrange, create an Excel data base. Thinking about all that will help you to also prioritize and downsize. There that should keep you busy for the next few years.

Sure wish I had done that over the years! It would be a bit overwhelming at this stage!

Sounds like you are running out of room , I have 3.5 acres, I'm sure I can "store" some of that stuff for you.

A palindrome is a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of characters which reads the same backward as forward, such as madam or “taco cat” or racecar.
