Question Parts Storage

I'm in the final two weeks before my car shell goes off for bodywork and paint. I'll pull the LS and Tremec as well as my suspension components, which will stay in my cold MN garage over the winter. What's the best way to store these components? I was going to order some engine storage bags to keep dust off and serve as a moisture barrier. Is there a place I can source large desiccant bags to place in the bags also? Thanks for your advice.

Re: Parts Storage

When I store an engine I use either an engine stand or a storage roller set up like Motofeet with large plastic leaf bag over the engine and duct tape closed.

Re: Parts Storage

I will stick in on the engine stand for sure. Should I remove portions of the front runner kit? Alternator and AC Compressor?

Re: Parts Storage

I started using the wife's vacuum sealer for small parts and zip loc bags for larger parts removing as much air as I can. A desiccant in the bags would help.
Just a BUBBA method, but cheap.

I hope the wife doesn't catch me. The hospital costs can be extreme.
