    I wish I was in a place where I could have a perm lift.

    This is better than nothing I find much more useful than jack stands ramps etc. Had one regret selling buying again for my Christmas present to me.

    It's not a sub for a post lift, but let's me do most of what I need too and can be lay flat and parked on and fits in small space and I can raise car with limited garage height. And wheel it out into sunshine.

    I built a wide 2 bay garage with a 12ft ceiling so I can put in a lift. Haven't got the lift yet. Also haven't epoxied the floor yet :-(

    We have BendPak lifts - both 2-post and 4-post. The Hellcat has it's own slot with no lift since she gets driven regularly.

    I have a 3200 sq ft garage at home with a 2 post lift but have only picked up the hellcat once to clean the wheels. I had to drive it up on 2x8 boards so the arms will swing under it.

    are you referring to the plastic?

    keeps moisture from rising...also wifes truck full of salt water runs under my cars....this keeps the salt water from evaporating under my car.....this year i am going to add a fan to circulate the air more too....under the plastic its always soaking wet, so i know it keeps the moisture from rising

    door is at 107.5" off the front floor---there are special rails to raise the height to whatever you want

    calculate everything yourself multiple times...make sure you leave 6"+ to play with.....i had 8", but forgot about drywall and didnt know when they vaulted they went from 2x6's to 2x8's for the ceiling...so i lost 2.5" that way....also remember the garage slopes front to back 1-2"....the lift needs to lift straight up....so adjustments to the lift need to be made to make up for that too.....i moved my lift towards the center of the garage more to give me more advantage of the vaulted ceiling.....also do a door opener that sits next to the door.....i have a few inches to spare..thats it....i can swap either car up or down...they are about 1" or so different in height....the new shark fin almost hits my lift - 1/4" to spare....also almost scrapes the bottom when going on and off the lift....you may need to get longer ramps or jack them with plywood...it misses by 1/4-1/2 "....

    dont count on anyone to add up the #'s.....you do it and make sure it can be done.....then do it again and again to double/triple check those #'s....
