The Lounge / Re: Who's making our parts?

Agree with most all of these posts, but the thing that really gets me is when little things are made so shitty that they bend. break or just don't work when you go to use them. Thing like clips, w/o Moldings, hood moldings etc. Can it really be that much more expensive to make them out of better material? I mean if you can sell a hood molding for 28.00 that wont hold a clip or bends when you look at it, cant they just make it out of even slightly better metal and sell it for $32? Some of this stuff is just complete crap and could be produced at a better quality level for marginal costs increase.

53k with 5 days to go.... wow! Without significant bracing , that car won't survive rotisserie  mounting , never mind an acid dip . Gonna take a big wallet to bring this one back.... but someone is obviously willing to try :)

Found the preproduction memo I was thinking of.  Mr Gaines is correct the no snake version was replaced with the snake version. Great memory !
Yeah.... not bad for an ol' guy huh ??  :)

The pedal and the bracket are different

Oh... I kinda though so. My son is doing a 67 coupe that someone had put Granada discs on. We were have a problem getting sufficient "pedal" . That's when it struck me that was probably a difference. Didn't realize the bracket itself might be different :( Off to ebay he goes .

Thanks again !

Thanks guys.... I think I posted in the wrong place. I  assumed the pedal assy was different but wanted to be sure. Appreciate the responses.

Thanks all... I am aware of concrete requirements , will have to make a couple of test holes to determine thickness. Sure wished the guy had built this garage with a 12 ft ceiling :)

Hi, looking at short post 2 post lifts. Ceiling height is restrictive (10') so I'm looking at the short post models. Anyone have a good recommendation/experience. I plan on installing my self.... with some help :)

Thanks
