    Is this the version ? https://www.automotechservices.co.uk...t-2-post-lift/

    They have a number listed. As they have a full lift I guess most garages have to have the internals altered for roof supports.

    If you are short on width or need to maintain easy allround access then one of these or similar might suit https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mobile-ca...E/233498091395
    Also it keeps the wheels and suspension free which is a large part of why you need to get underneath. Additional advantage is that it is considerably cheaper than a post type which is usually full height, but which can't be fully utilised in a "normal" height garage. A mobile mid riser scissor lift is on my must have list.

    Yep i got a scissor, 3000kg

    Compact, removable ramp bits. Solid. Gives me 1 metre underneath, get good lighting and there is a whole new world under there. Get some cushions for your knees.

    Good for spotting oil leaks, clearances, and doing exhausts. Etc

    Same here. I use mine regularly and I so wish I’d bought it during the build rather than afterwards.
