    I love that you consider this a “sort of” restoration. Looking forward to your next “full” restoration.

    With the lift still standing I managed to finish the tank plumbing and start mounting the shock support and battery tray combo. The s38 wiring and engine compartment wiring are proving to be time consuming,
    but fairly simple all together.

    that is a very cool lift. i have been trying to figure out what kind of lift to put in (at some point) but i know a 2 or 4 poster will be problematic in my garage. this one could fit near the wall and not get in the way of anything else. the only other option that is appealing to me is the short rise pair of lifts like the quick jack / bend pak / scissor lift ... or the movable Max Jax. they are all so much more limiting than yours

    Another cool option with the one I purchased is that it can be rolled outside, put your car on it and pressure wash underneath without trashing your garage or shop.

    Trunk electrical and mechanicals are finally finshed. 255lph fuel pump mounted in tank with filter regulator exposed for easy service. Battery mounted with cutoff switch and 2ga ran to starter.

    And it is not clear to me that those other lifts would allow for lifting our cars at the right jack points. Gary's lift looks like it may be just the ticket.

    The arms are very adjustable. Only downside is low clearance when loading. My coupe cleared fine, but my TR6 sat too low to clear the arms. Picked up my Grand Wagoneer with ease as well.
