Project Hunk of Junk - Christmas Presents

My wife gave me some Christmas presents for the project.  She did not get me the 4 point harnesses.  She got a new radio for the garage and a new pair of overalls.  She is either supporting the project or just wants me out of the house.

Project Hunk of Junk - parts tidy up

My garage is starting to overflow with eBay sourced car parts (my wife says more rubbish for the Hunk of Junk). I am now in a position of not really having any working area to carry out any work on the car.
