    will do Rob.

    I'm up against a mountain and a 1/2 with these floor pans, as I said I have not started on them Primarily cos of no time as of yet but also cos I use the chevelle Regularly.

    when I start on it tho it'll be down for awhile. someone welded sheets of metal on top of the actuall Rotting floorpans. so I not only hafta cut thru that, but the floor pans themselfs, A real nightmare under there
    traded the MM180 in for a MM212

    Default 2 post to 4 post adaptors.

    I made a set of adaptors so my cars can be stored on my 2 post service. Normally the wheels hang and you have to place the lifting arms before lifting the car. With the adaptors you can drive right on and off.

    Yes they are 1.25 grade 8 150,000 psi each. The heads are shouldered in the box, welded to the box at the head and on the shank, welded to the angle that runs under the box and also welded to the 1/4 top plate. The top plate is also welded to the 1/4 angle to reinforce the rectangular tubing in the bolt area. I use this to lift race cars that are in the 2000 pound range. I would use much heaver stock if i were to build for heaver cars. As it is I purchased the bolts and then used "found" stock (AKA scrap or leftovers) I had on hand after the idea came to me one afternoon.

    New aluminum Kite Buggy made out of 1.5x1.5x.125 and 2x2x.250 5086 square pipe. Can't wait to finish it

    I made an arm for my flat screen lcd tv . Now it looks like it is floating in air. It swivels away from wall and pivots so you see it anywhere in the room.

    and for giggles empty and weld beer cans together and to a 1/16 5086 plate( I do it cause I" CAN!")
