also the best invetment I ever made is installing a single post hydraulic hoist (runs by air compresser). Bought it used from a local service station supplier for $75. They are jerking them out of the ground as they tear out old service stations and new stations use modern surface mounted or dual post hoists. Add another $75 for the hydraulic oil, $35 for a new control valve, dig an 8'deep hole and run 1/2" air line to it, descale the outside of the hoist container, POR15 and tar coat the container, install it in the hole level w/ the concrete slab, dump a couple of sacks of cement for a bottom footing, back fill the hole and finish the slab to the contianer, install a new piston seal and oil. Now you can change oil and brakes sitting in a chair!
