New Toy in the garage!


MChester

Recommended Posts

New addition to my garage this week. No, not another project car. I have my hands full with the CR. I got something to help make mods and maintenance MUCH easier. Plus, I should be able to park the Sol under the S2000 in the winter. BONUS...

 

Now I just have to install and test it. Should be fun. cool.gif

awesome! Im looking at getting a collapsable base one for my garage (dad uses it for wood working as well, so bolted pillars wont do)

 

what kinda amperage does it pull?

It takes a 30 amp, 220v single phase circuit. I already had it wired for this because I planned to put the lift in a LONG time ago when we built the house. Some brands require 3 phase 220v. That can be a BIG issue depending on where you live. If you are in a normal subdivision, or out in the country, most Electric companies have no 3 phase in those areas and the cost to run it there is often very high.

very very very jealous. my rents just added a four car garage onto our house, and the second I heard they were planning on it, I started looking at 2 posts. Then, they told me it would only have a 9 foot ceiling. I instantly became very depressed. Granted, I could still fit one, but only being able to lift the car a few feet isn't worth the money. Happy to see a fellow honda guy with a proper at home shop. good job man!

That's crazy! I've never seen one of those in somebodies house before. Nice buy! You got pics of the S2k up on here?

 

No pics of the S up here yet, still a work in progress. Here are a couple. Supercharger and suspension are done. Now I need to finish the soft top & audio install and some wiring. Got a few aero pieces to do as well.

I have a hard top, painted body color, as well. But I still like the convenience of the soft top. Hard top can't be dropped in 10 seconds at a stop light. Especially in the summer, in Ohio, you can have thundertorms in the afternoon for and hour on an otherwise perfect top down day. It's nice to have the option on the road. Otherwise, I like the hard top too.
