now to set up my small shop.....i need to do some thinking on this one.

as a reference that ladder is an 8' tall ladder, as it is now under the lowest part of the lift is 6' 3". If i go to the max height of 6' 10" I will have 7" between the cieling and the top of the car. i think the corvette is also the same height. its funny the MGA hits the narrowest part of the ramp, the corvette hits the maximum part of the ramp.

my son and I bolted the 4post lift down last night, about 2 hrs worth of work, sixteen 4" deep 3/4 holes in the concrete floor. his big hammer drill was a spline drive and we couldn't find a 3/4 spline drive bit locally so we had to use a regular hammer drill with a carbide 3/4 bit. wasn't technically hard, just work, there is no movement in the posts.

I rented to drill mine... 10 years later, I'm still not squished so it must be fine

yeah, having a cars center of mass 8' up in the air makes you think twice about just having it sitting on the concrete floor.
