Tomorrow I get to use a heated garage to work on the rear suspension of the car! I can finally melt the car after managing to push a fair amount of snow and ice into every nook and cranny this last snow storm. It's mighty cold out now: -15F or -26C without the wind chill.

I want 2 days without need of the car to do the clutch job as I'm not a mechanic and will be slower. Though having done the suspension work on the front has me confident about removing the axles in short order. I've also learned about applying too much force to fasteners, both tightening and loosening. Ha ha. Don't want to drill out bolts holding the bell housing, or replace expensive speedo gearing, so glad the lesson has hopefully been learned.
