On the move

So ive started shifting everything down to my parents new shed, in a couple of weeks everything will be undercover, i will have a hoist and room to move.

After all this time its a fantastic feeling. My cars have never been on a hoist and i just cant imagine how much easier it will make the smallest of jobs.

 

Expect a change of scenery from the photos i take. Ill be making up an engine table on wheels so i can pull the entire driveline out of the car and then hoist the shell up leaving everything on the table. Huge thanks to my neighbours who have never complained.

    • Yea I totally agree.. My neighbours are totally An&@!!! they had the cops come visit me one day due to my car idling (288 cam and a race spec exhaust)
      Wish hoists were an option for our garage, but we dont have the head space.. some day!
