      Well, I don't get it. But nice pic of Model AA. I doubt I would stage it that far back on the lift, kinda need a wee bit more weight to the front.

        Look at the lift arms. Definitely a pucker factor there in the length. The truck is actually balanced fairly well as you see it. Turns out, the engine had to come out, so it is really light in the front end now.

        Sometimes we will drop them on the safety’s and use a screw jack at the back if the frt is light

      Assymetric is made to set the vehicle staged back. I have 4——-10K Assymetrics, it’s nice to be able to open the doors up all the way when lifted

          Yeah, and that is my son too. Uniforms are a sore subject with me BTW.

          Nobody is writing about how amazingly clean and crisp that shop is.
          Try as I might I just cannot get to that point. Great looking place you have Brent!

            Thank you for the kind words. (One key element in this scenario is you have a full-time employee on the payroll doing nothing but cleaning up after 7 guys!)

          I wondered just how tall Mr. Terry was.

          Must be one tall dude to take THAT picture!!

            Brent, if it's not a trade secret what is the floor painted with?

              Mitch, once you get a lift, a pole jack is almost mandatory. As is a step ladder LOL

              I think more people would opt for a lift at home if they only knew about low overhead lifts

              now what we really need is a tranny jack
              I am sick of screwing around but for some crazy reason Miles doesn't want one. You should see the contrivances of milk crates and cardboard boxes he comes up with

              I agree with the neat appearance of Brent's shop and you just try to get that here!

                Damn right just go buy it, They also work good for dropping gas tanks..

                We keep a clean shop but when your putting out 10-20 cars a day there is no way to keep it squeaky clean.

              The part that worries me about the new lifts is the tiny footprint where it bolts to the floor. My old Rotory lift has 4 inch angle iron welded to the towers that reaches out about 3 feet and is bolted to the concrete.

                I have seen that done when the concrete was thin. If you have 6" of concrete the anchor bolts work better than you might imagine. The installers know what they are doing. I suggest a professional install, always

                  Pretty sure this one was NOT professionally installed! Maybe that is why I was feeling a need for being Bold on Monday!!
