other people who come around to help sit on rolling stools which drops them down to my height. We have no come across any job that we can not do sitting down.
X2 on that!!

I have raised the ceiling in my home garage and can lift my '63 T'Bird to the upper limit of my four post lift. However, like you point out; I have found that it is much more comfortable to just raise it high enough that I can sit and roll around.

I have actually "customized" an old roll-around office chair so that the back support is at an angle such that I can semi-recline to a comfortable non-neck straining position when working overhead underneath the 'Bird. Basically the same principle as a creeper, but a heck of a lot easier to get into and out of!!

A lot of guys are probably going to flame me for being such a wuss, but I want to keep wrenching as long as I can and when you get to be my age you need all the help that you can get!!

Tom
