    I've heard stripping is a thankless job.

    Can you tell me about the 4 post lift? Been seriously looking at getting one for my garage, to the point of modeling it.
    Which did you go with?

      It's a "direct lift" bought it used from a buddie... It makes working on the car unbelievably easier... It came with a solid oil pan thing, i use that with a couple bottle Jack's when it's time to pull wheels off. I did accidentally break the hydraulic fitting off that sticks out up there by the front drivers wheel.

      If you buy used one like mine bring lots of friends that owe you big time... The left side runner has the hydraulic piston in it and weighs slightly more then an aircraft carrier.

      At first i was wanting a 2 post but I'm extremely happy with the 4 post.

        I had to read that a few times... something about "bottle" and "Jack" being right next to each other made me thirsty.

        You can always upload them here, it's a bit cumbersome and it's bugged, in that the first time you try and "send it to the server" it fails, but works on the second try and it's limited to 5 images per post (edit: increased to 10 images).

        You can use imgur and hotlink the images still. But the trick to it is that after you upload an image to imgur (either a created acct or with no acct) right click the image and select the option "open image in new tab" Then go to that tab and use that URL for linking, that way it will display the image, free of the link or redirect back to imgur.

        i think the images that are uploaded are resized or optimized in the forum settings somewhere, but as a habit i always use Irvanview to batch edit a folder of images i want to upload here and resize/optimize them before uploading (1600*1200 and 80% typically) this helps save server space and makes for faster loading.
