Space is always at a premium in our shop. Even with our new addition, we still have too many cars and not enough space. As a partial solution we have invested in three new four post lifts, and for this lift pictured below, Ken welded-on two extensions, so that this 8000 pound lift can now raise two Bugeyes at once.
Below you can see the piece of angle iron he bolted to the edge of the lift. To that, he welded several lengths of heavy angle iron.
Next, he boxed in the new platforms and then welded on steel diamond plate. You can see one finished lift extension below.
And here you can see two Bugeyes sharing the lift, nose to nose. The lighter tail end overhangs the original deck and is supported by the extension.
We’ll build a second one like this during the coming week, which will allow us four in the air and four underneath… a Bugeye eight-pack!
