Snow supposed to be blasting us here tonight in upper IN. They can't decide IF or How Much on the reports. SO, wife says the new lift I bought is coming out of garage and car in. So now my brand new nice painted lift is setting outside!!! Wahhh! She WAS driving over it, but I lifted it a couple times and guess it doesn't lower quite as much as original and hits her air dam on front of car. SO, out it went. I put the wheels on it and it really does roll around pretty nice on concrete. NOW, what about 70ft on the grass back to my shop drive??? Thinking lifting one end up with PK three point and let it rid on bigger cast wheels OR using the two wheel cart on back with operator to give slight lift and guide along. Will be like a trailer. That should work best I guess. I took a tractor (Big one) out of garage to work a little in there and removed some GT's to on the trailer for swap meet, so might be able to get the lift in there with more shifting around of stuff. Today's NOT my day!!!

Car lift? Tell her to back it on.....

lay a 2 X 6 down each side and once the car is up on the boards it won't hit the lift.
It'll be easier to remove the boards when you are out there working than to move the lift when the car goes in.

Put some weight on it and then depress the lowering pedal.

That's 3 good ideas.
Get a new wife...

Weight makes no diff now. Boards Idea is good, cept I don't have any around at moment. This is a Motorcyle lift, not car and to be a GT lift soon. Would need 2x 12's for wife to stay on them I bet, heh! Wife won't leave, we couldn't live w/out each other telling the other how to live/do things all day long!
