So I must admit to being somewhat lazy about it but I did at least get a couple of things done toward the shop cleanup.
#1. The camping gear / sporting goods, aside from the fishing net that is, that I am aware of, have been contained in one box. Ready to be transferred to a tote. #2. Speaking of totes, I went to Home Depot yesterday to pay the bill, and lo and behold, they had 20 gallon totes for $5.88. So I picked up two of them. #3. The recycling bin including those death trap jack stands hit the curb this morning. Bye Bye suicidal jack stands. FWIW. I tossed the water pump in there as well. I have video of the thing to remember it by, and that takes up less space in my cramped shop!
My plan now is to… #!. Round up all my automotive electrical components from the box that is falling apart, and strewn throughout the floor etc… And organize it all into one tote. There is a project that was left in limbo when the cam phasers on the truck decided to go toes up, and that was installing a 9 pin trailer plug on the truck, and tie in an auxiliary reverse light. Basically I am tying in a pair of LED Off Road lights, small low profile ones, that will tuck just under the rear bumper next to the trailer hitch, to provide me more light while backing up. These aren’t “tailgater lights” but just a means to put a LOT more light onto what is behind me at night. I have no clue why manufacturers even bother with the puny ones from the factory, but I digress… #2. Round up metal cut off stock. Including a butchered HF winch mount plate, find a storage space for any that I am keeping, and probably box up the rest to run to my BIL, he’s always got some sort of welding project going on. #3. Transfer the camping gear / sporting goods into the second tote. #4. Take a large lawn and leaf trash bag out there, and collect all rags, and any fabric stuff my in laws have dumped on me, and bag it all up. Wash it thoroughly, and then figure out what to do with it. #5. Fold up the drop cloth. Why can I never seem to get this one task done?! I know, I need help with it, and it is HUGE. Best way to do it would be to take it to the yard, lay it out, and then fold it up. I guess that would work for the weekend.
