Regarding the heater, should I get L.P. or kerosene fuel?

Thanks again
Glad to see your decision is not to try and put the car and you in that shed ,
that project could of gone down hill.
Once you get the motor out you should be able to get in there to work on,
it looks to be a small 4cylinder type car .
Choice for a heater is open when your outside, inside could be a different
situation , whatever route you take THINK SAFETY.

Good Luck and keep us posted o your progress...

BTW... poring a slab and moving the shed for furture use would be your best bet dollar for dollar if you really want to go use it .
