That's pretty much what I did, the first time I changed a head gasket (but I used an area of a factory floor that wasn't in use, which had 12"/300mm terracotta tiles).

The third time (of three times) I changed one, I just tossed everything into a cardboard box as I dismantled it.

I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
