Garage cleaning

Got some cleaning done in the garage and found ~150' of Dom tubing and 80' of 2"x.250 square tube (frame material???)
Starting to organize my project list in order of cheaper to more expensive, quick to long term, keeper to sell it, ect. It's a huge list. And I started to chop the cab off of one of my projects since it will never run or roll on it's own I am gonna scavenge what I can and scrap the rest ( yes I'm keeping the 60/70 setup).
I also found a pressure washer, edger, go-kart motor, a box of brackets I got from ruff stuff years ago. It's gonna get interesting.

Got the cab cut off completely understand bolted the front fenders, and doors, baby's asleep can cut any more tonight hope to have it out of the garage this weekend, so I can arrange some stuff and get my trans bench, engine stands and parts washer in the garage and assembled so I can actually start working on a rig

Made plenty of progress on the garage then the HOA got on me about the zj so in the garage she went but I did clean the drive way up enough to actually get some work done when needed

Finally got the zj out of the garage and taken apart, dragged it in the trailer sold the front axle, the tcase, wheels tires, and suspension. I'm keeping the motor and transmission. It went to the scrap pile today.

FYI using a highlift to remove both tires from one axle at the same time is soooooo sketchy, it teetered alot and the danm high lift wouldn't go back down

Finally got this old thing out of the back of the garage and off to the land of broken dreams and failed experiments.

Found a Dana 60(rear)in the back of my garage, a rebuilt 205 I forgot about, a whole 203 with the correct trans mission.
Found a "fresh" rebuilt 727 ( might have rebuilt it 3years ago)
Found a 2wd 727 probably 8yeas since I've seen it.
Found the 1.25" and the 1.5" dies to my JD2 32 bender ( now I can start on the smaller buggy for Audrey )


Side note: has anyone seen or built a buggy with hydro steering and used a handle bar setup like a bike (all hand controls including throttle and brake)

so I got a lot more cleaning done since the new year started and I stepped down from my team lead position to spend more time at home.
been working on it a lot recently got the floor done in the back, got the lighting fixed so I can see in there now, lights have built in blue tooth speakers so I can jam out while working. had the buggy in there prepping ( spark plugs, lof, new rear shocks, went over every nut and bolt on suspension since I had a scare at trees almost lost a leaf spring) . but now I have some more room in the back I can get it in there and pull the transfer case out to install the 4.7 gears in the rear case. it is also to tall I has to deflate the tires and ratchet strap the suspension just to get it in the door.
