While working on my car with the body removed, I kept doinking my head on the square tube that sticks out when I was working on the rear chassis. My garage isn't large and I would also jab myself in the gut when trying to walk around the car. I remedied the problem by installing a plastic bottle over the end of each square tube and securing the bottle with electrical tape. To make the bottles more visible I painted them orange. Since I have done this I don't hit the square tube as often, and when I do bump into it, I don't get gouged.
