    I like the Cobra. I wish I had one like that to drive around here and take to the big car shows so I wouldn't have to walk for miles. Ron

    Hey Bill

    Was just looking at your album photos. Are the pipes on you car as they come from FFR or did you paint them?

    Bill,

    The pictures of the lift are in his Album and also one that I put in the Lounge under Nice Lift. He made the center section so he can pull it out once the car is on them and that really opens up the area to work in. I like my Kwik Lifts as they are higher, but these are much cheaper and easier to use. No jacking up the front of the llifts to have them even, but sometimes I just drove up on mine and didn't jack them up if I just wanted to check for loose bolts. And you can make these any height that you want.
