Could you not have made your Garage a little narrower, you almost have room to open a Door, but not quite !!!

The garage isn't as narrow as it looks, tis a trick of the camera lens.

One naked chassis! Luckily I found no serious rust as the previous owner had it shot blasted and powder coated. This is the original chassis and the car spent most of it's life in California and apparently never used in the wet.
Next stage will be to degrease it and repaint it followed by lots of waxoyl.
