I'm assuming no one wants to see pictures of me cleaning, scraping, and sanding a motor for the last 15 days.
To take a break from the monotony of prep-work, I reorganized part of the garage over the break. The overall status of the garage is still "messy." It will likely stay that way until I finish painting, but at least in the meantime I have some room to move about. Also, the foam floor is a definite plus for keeping my butt and bare feet off the cold concrete.
