New (old) toy arrived

Postby Fredjohn » Fri 10.08.2018, 17:22

Well here it is my new (old) toy.

Holds 3.5tonnes, so the Lotus's shouldn't be an issue, even 2 at a time!!!!

Just need some transverse beams for the old S4 and 4 blocks for the M100. Yet to work out the Evora's jacking points!!!

:clap:
As for the S4, doesn't it have "external" jacking points like the M100?

No: there are no metal outriggers, just fibreglass box section with thick wire bracing. If I lifted it like an M100, I'd probably leave the whole chassis on the floor!!!!

John: Oh yes all thoroughly checked :) I have 46" clear at max height of lift, which is also the approx height of the windscreen. But this is 3" too little to lower the lift..........so I mustn't raise it all the way :poke: :poke: : it has to go up 3" before it descends.

So what goes up might not come down. Best invest in a very large sticker for the lift, or one of those Doromobile roof things for the garage, with a big pillow duct-taped to the inside of the garage roof. :lol:

Or just ring up the people who built the roof on Wimbledon’s Centre Court . . .
