    I used to use cardboard, and still do occasionally. However, several years ago I got a piece of folding insulation. I think it's called fan insulation. It's a thick section that folds on itself. The panels are 2 foot by 4 foot. It's cheap enough that when it gets nasty or torn, I can toss it and cut off a new section.

    I've never done it, but in reading this post I thought a yoga mat. Seems like it would work.

    Yes, yoga mats work well. I bought some at a store called Five Below for $5 each. They're roughly 2'x 6'. I have them on my floor in front of my work benches. A nice thing about them is their thickness- I don't have to worry about tripping over them.

    I saved some trunk carpets from cars I've parted out and that works well. Easy to drag around and when they get really dirty and greasy, hang them on the fence and powerwash them.

    He got stuff in large HD boxes. We'd break them down and lay on them.
    Easy to scoot on too.

    Doesn't anybody own a creeper? They beat all the other things because they are mobile.

    Problem with creepers is how high off the ground they put you. On a lowered car they just wont work...
