Get the biggest shelving unit your shop will take, and organize accordingly. Bags are great but you have to put them some where, I actually use paint mixing cups and label and they are stackable. To each their own! Good luck and have fun!

Really good point about shelving. It's amazing how much space you need for the stuff taken off. I've got most of the small stuff in the back of the 90.

Also like to lay the stuff out on a folding table where I can see it all while reassembling.

Sharpies. Lots of them. For marking zip locks etc

Big rubbermaid tub. Put all small parts / bolt / brackets in there.

The thought process is, "I don't know where it is exactly, but I definitely know it's in the tub!"

One of the worst things that can happen is that something walks off and you never find it again.

I didn't do this cause I was so incredibly inexperienced before my engine swap kicked off but iPhones are cheap as crap in CL these days. Maybe buy a 4 with 32g for $35 bucks and keep it charged in the shop just for your project.

One Stop Shop for vids and pics in chrono order dedicated to the project at hand.

Great idea @1of40 and even if not carrier network connected (i.e. No network monthly charges) iPhone can still be Wifi connected to your iCloud storage so you also have a backup and perfect if the iDevice ever dies on you. Great secondary use for these handheld computers after getting an upgrade. No longer feeling guilty about adding more waste to the trash heap.

Good call. I kept all my iPhones past three gens and two gens of Samsung Notes. Have been using them as Digital Gauges(Torque) App on my OBD enabled cars. I will get more uses out of these little guys.

Have been buying shelvings units and plastic containers/organizers from HF. Gotta love that store!
