Just a little sumptin' to clean up the garage....

Well, after a couple successful hours of "test and tune" with tunercat II and my 6.5, it was time to hit the garage for a good cleaning.

I've been putting it off for a while so it's got sh......errr.......stuff every where. You know, you just cram stuff into the garage thinking you'll fix it up later but never do....

I started running across my towing stuff here and there and decided this wouldn't do. I've got a lot of cash tied up in this stuff and not being able to find it was not cool.

So, an hour with some scrap bits and the table saw netted me a nice little holder for all my towing goodies:





Ahhhh, much better!

I'll skip down to Home depot tomorrow and grab some casters for it and it'll be all done.

As a side bonus, when I have to haul that heavy Husky Centerline equalizer hitch over to the truck I can roll the whole thing and I don't have to "dead lift it" from flat off the floor. My crickity ol' back approves.......

Still have to clean up the garage though..............

Finished up the "tow caddy" and slid it into it's home, which the wife has now officially named "The Towing Center" in the garage:




A few final modifications were a small rack to hold the clips and pins, and a pocket to hold warranty paperwork/receipts/instruction manuals:



Heck, I may even throw a coat of paint on it sometime......


Still haven't finished the garage though..............

That is a great idea, thanks so much for sharing.
Right now, I would be ashamed to post a picture of my messy garage.
