Sorry, Swype and very little proofreading. You guys should be used to it by now.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

I am sorely tempted to add that lift to my garage rebuild budget. Oh, look, I just did.

Now to ever get it rebuilt. Maybe 2018.

Josh, no worries. I'm hoping to just be spending all day hauling to scrap yard.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Those lifts are $3500 now, not 1850.

may have in my garage 3.0. What I don't like is completely nonadjustable width. If you have two different size vehicles you have to compromise one or both.

Or just have two jack setups.

This seems like it would work well: http://www.costco.com//.product.1158...ontent=Default

My dad has a mid-rise scissor lift (that he took with him to FL when he moved) that was not very useful. He has a mk1 mr2 so it was useful for him but for every other car it's only good for suspension and brakes.
01-30-2015 11:03 AM
aidandj Hmmm I'll think about that one. I do wish they we're a little cheaper. I've been browsing craigslist and have occasionally seen some used lifts for <1000$.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Do it Aiden, give me $1850, plus ~$300 in shipping, then fork lift it over here, cut up my concrete, pour a 50,000psi pad, and install the whole shebang for me.

I'll even let you use it free for the first tire rotation.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

Skip to 9:00 for shots of the lift, skip to 6:00 if you wanna hear about the garage



Awesome garage, you definitely need to decide where to spend your money and time. My shelving cost me $40x2 at home depot and took 20 minutes to assemble, his look like $1000+ custom cabinets with doors and professional mounting. I want, but I also want to win the lottery.

Also, when your entire drivetrain is in the retarded location of a 911's, you can have a retarded lift like his

Ryan's suggestion would be my ideal lift. It can be used in a 1 car garage, takes up zero space, but gives you access to every component of the car.

Re: Official PDX Lounge

The 2 post lifts generally have height adjustable feet on them allowing you to get under the side skirt and extend up to safe jacking points.

I was imagining these floor jacks, which cover far greater surface under the car, touching components that shouldn't be touched.

Forces the same, yes, but placed on non structural items. Ryan made a good observation though. Small pads could be used.




I still prefer 2 post. But that's me.

Sadly, I'm not sure that I will make Monday. I looked to see if I have it off, which I do, but it's one of 2 days off (including today) in 8 days. I'm going to be dead.

Do want. Even I could use that.

It's the exact same lifting method and force that Eddie puts on any Miata lifted with one of his 2-posts.

It all depends on how you space the lifts when you install them. If you keep them so there's only ~6" inside of the frame rail, It doesn't really block anything, but gives you access to suspension swaps, brake jobs, exhaust fab, tranny and diff removal, etc. Something the likes of the quick jacks FM is selling doesn't do.

You use little rubber pads at jacking points.
