A 2 post lift is on my bucket list of garage equipment

That certainly helps and it being in a warehouse... so there is hopefully loads if space to organise all your parts, tools, lazy boy, bar fridge

Hi Jacques,
I did import some unique Thing parts from the Thing Shop in the US.
Some VW generic parts have been sourced locally. Panels will be my nightmare when the paint is removed.

Riaan,
Warehouse space is valuable and expensive and not designed for cars and toy storage. You can never have enough space for cars and bikes and toys no matter how big the warehouse so this is my constant challenge. Yes to the bar fridge though vital garage equipment :D
Ciao

I don't see the A-frame Herman. It looks like you're just parking in front of the Thing, in the middle of the road! :D
Dammm.... These guys on this forum are just to sharp for me.... :shock:

Was actually being pushed after breaking down, as junk and bad workmanship normally does.

The driver of the thing was so embarrassed that he hid under the dash when he spotted the camera.

And I thought I could Bull :bn: this one as well .... :oops:

:wink:

:lol: :lol:
