I wish there was a deal like that around here. What did you search for?

I just searched "car lift". Turns out that one is already sold, but I think I saw another for $750.

Cj I'm jelly. My garage is tall enough for a lift and I have 220v power, but there's no good deals on one. By the way, most 2 post lifts have a bar across the top that connect the two posts, which are for stability and a safety cut off, so you can't lift the car higher than the lift itself. So yeah. They're pretty tall

I have 220v as well, but I don't think that my garage will be tall enough. Oh well.

Not sure if they are reps. It says they are aftermarket... so I would guess so.


Do you want them? I can grab them for you.

Damn. I have a CPS I can send you if you just want to swap it. But I'll need it back eventually (when I'm done with the build).

No idea how long it can run with those sensors being bad. I know my sensors are good, so let me stick them in a small flat rate box for you so you can see if it's the problem. They're not too hard to swap once you get the hang of it.

I won't probably won't be finishing my build for another couple months, so you've got time.


And you folks who are looking for a turbo (Chadley, Young Kenneth) if you haven't seen this yet:
