Sick as it sounds, I like the winter months because I can get all this car
work done without sweat dripping down my face and into my eyes. I have my
lined Carhart work pants, along with their thermal sweatshirt and vest and
am quite comfortable working in 35+ degree weather. Once it gets below that,
I fire up the 35K BTU kerosene bullet heater and I'm warm in the garage when
it's 15-20 degrees outside. I can't hear anything and may go deaf but it's
warm :-)

Enjoy your garage!

I hate to drag this up.B  I fear fueling a heated debate.B  Yet I feel

Yes yes...and nay to all nay-sayers...having a garage in winter IS better
than lying in the snow or on the dirt. Seriously, for the first time in my
life, I do have a garage, 24 x 40.B B The TR3A sits inside, on 6 x 6 blocks
with the steering dismantled for installation of the steering pin
modification. And this is happening in the middle of January, will actually
be completed today, when the best I could do before was look through the
window at a huddled, bundled bulk outside that was the Triumph hidden in the
snow, while plotting all the work that would have to wait until spring when
I would rather be driving it.Oh, and intriguingly, I had zero oil in the
steering box.B  Today, a balmy 23 degrees without wind to penetrate to the
skin, the steering box got filled with fully synthetic 75-90. Amazing.  The
little things in life, eh????
