Liquids and other yucky stuff

So, in preparation for removing the engine, the Clymer book said to drain the oil and coolant.  Now, i’ve never been much of a car wrench, so i haven’t done much of this.  It ended up being relatively easy, but the aftermath of cleaning up and dealing with the used oil/coolant/gas. is a pain.  Thankfully, the county is having a hazardous waste pickup day this coming saturday close to where we live, so i can take it there

Yes. Dealing with that is quite a pain. I’ll probably want to strip and paint it if it works out well, and i’m not looking forward to the goo that’s leftover from stripping either.
