Too cold to wrench in the winter

Well, I only have a tarped in carport, so my wrench time in the cold Canadian winters months are limited. I ski everyday though, so definitely a close second to wrenching. Just kidding I would rather be skiing, actually telemarking.

I have started to tear into my second owner 88’ 4Runner with 245,000 kms. I did OME rear springs and stock 4.88s with all the brakes. Just started into the complete front end. I am doing BJ spacers, stock 4.88s and complete updated BJ, Tierods, bushings, etc. I have a new softopper and will be doing a clutch, rear main and a engine tune up (22re). 33x10.5 BFGs

I am a longtime Toyota fanatic.

Now just to find time between skiing and cold weather.

Wrenching in the cold pretty brutal. It's all about the gloves, nothing worse than turning frozen bolts with frozen fingers.

One of the things to consider is that things simply became brittle and break in sub zero temperatures....
Better to find a friend with heated garage.
