Hey guys I'm wrecking an EB ghia in my garage and I want to take the lsd out of it, problem is the car is currently in the garage and I need to move it to the driveway for it to be accessible for a tow truck.
I remember last time the towie just put a winch to it from his truck and scraped the driveway which I don't want happening again. I'd love to take the diff out on the driveway to avoiding moving it all together but it's not exactly level ground, so I need to do all under car work in the garage. I was wondering what would be the easiest way to do this, maybe do all the under car stuff in the garage (if it's possible to roll it without watts link, tailshaft and swaybars removed??) or somehow roll it out with trolley jacks or my engine crane or something along those lines? How do you go about moving a car with no axle in it? Preferably in a safe manner!! Cheers.

If its stripped of most parts then an engine crane should easily do the trick provided the path is flat.
