This is going to sound obnoxious, but... I really want to store the Caddy in my garage, and not miles away in some uncovered space in a public storage unit after it must leave my friends' driveway.
The problem is that my garage's max length is 216" on the generous side, but actually, I'm not sure that there is more than 210" of space given that there is a shelf installed on the wall in the front with angled supporting beams. And last time I measured my Caddy, it was something like 220" long. Sorry that you can't really see it too well at the moment, but this is the shelf I'm talking about...
My Miata is currently residing in the garage. As you can see, with the Boxes in front, it's even cozy for the Miata. I'll be cleaning out everything under the shelf, on the side of the garage and putting all those boxes into storage. Now all I have to do is get the Caddy to physically FIT into the garage, which is why I'm motivated to take the front bumper off (and perhaps some other parts behind the bumper) to free up at least 10" of length from the Caddy.
AM I CRAZY????
I've spent a little time reading through my shop manual about how to remove the front bumper, but what's not clear to me is how much time and effort this kind of endeavor would take.
Can anybody give me a general idea of how much work (e.g. how many hours, how many parts --a million parts or only a few, etc) I'd be getting myself into by removing the front part of the Caddy?
Please tell me if I'm crazy.
