We moved a few weeks before all this quarantine started... got a decent space finally to work in the garage and planning a layout.

Anyone have any major regrets or wins as far as organization? I feel like I'm wasting corner space

We're looking to move here in a couple weeks as well. Here in SD people are acting stupid, but there isn't much as far as the sickness, at least yet.

I took the sami down the road about a mile. Getting a wobble in the front right wheel- need to figure that out.
I am also trying to "pretty" up the wiring in the engine bay. I have wires all over the place and i think making it look nice will actually make it easier to work on.

There are three factory mounts for 1.3 and 1.6
All the 1.6 except the exception are the same. Large with differences. Some model 1.6 came with a steel plate rubber coated when the mount was made. No doubt some Japanese engineer thought it would be quieter with manual transmission.
The 1.3 were always the same. Driver side mount rips from engine torque going away. Easily fixed with a limit chain around mount, for those needed it.

The exception was a larger 1.3 mount on a rare sidekick. Over the years that part number has merged into a standard 1.3 mount at most auto parts stores. This sidekick is easy to identify but itís a unicorn. In a early 89 the first Sodekicks were coming in. Not a good time for Suzuki either. A recent consumer report falsely accused them of designing a dangerous vehicle known in the USA as a Samurai. They may have rushed this to market prematurely trying to get another model on the USA market. So for the first six months of 89, a 1.3 carbed sidekick was made. It was so gutless that they had to gear it the lowest gear set that ASIAN made for that car thru the entire production run to 2001.  Sidekick 5:88 gears are so rare people pay a lot of money. So with all that axle gearing the engine mount had to be upgraded. Itís bigger than a Samurai and smaller than a Sidekick.

Problem with running two 1.6 mounts is the trans is lifted up in the front allowing the fluid to run away from the front trans bearings. It shortens the life of the trans if driven long distances on flat roads.

So there really is a HD mount. For us itís getting harder and harder to obtain.

I am a fan of no vibration rubber mounts and accept the fact that big tires and low gears are gonna lift that drive side engine up. So replace the mount often or put a limit chain on it.

Yup! Iíve toyed with the idea of unfollowing all my friends and groups so that I only see the for sale listings. You canít Unfriend everyone because then the buyers and seller might not be comfortable doing business with you.

Spent 2 hours in the barn tonight moving junk around. Organizing and hanging lights. Need so many more lights!

I had a shop built 3 years ago.  30x36 on 6" slab plus 10x36 side shed over dirt.  I added warehouse racks that I picked up cheap on one wall.  After only 3 years, it's in near total disarray. :-(  At least I have been able to keep the piles of junk from creeping into the center section and I can still get two vehicles in there.

Thereís a $400 samurai 2 hours away from me. I offered $500 if he could deliver. No response. I really donít need it.

This is the only sami in the midwest - tracks look like fun but dang!$$$
