    Here are some photos I managed to take in the short timeframe that I had. Full road trip video will follow.

















































    More updates once the car is in Germany which will hopefully happen this weekend.

    Very nice. I was in Malaga 12 years ago. It’s a beautiful place to visit.

    Nice, Fredo. Can't go wrong with south Spain.

    Two things were delivered in the last few days.

    I know! I'm stoked!

    I went with 4-post in the end - https://www.twinbusch.de/product_inf...6ffb17a15c5902



    Two reasons for that -- main one being the garage floor which is 10 to 15 cm thick, 2-post needs minimum 20 cm for safe installation. I considered redoing the floor and put fresh concrete but that would take a lot of money and time. 4-post doesn't even need to be bolted down and I bought an optional mobile kit so it can easily be moved around.
    2nd one is space, the garage is a bit over 4 meters wide: 4-post is 2.6 m in width while 2-post is 3.6 m so it would be really crammed.

    4-post will get most of the jobs done nicely and frankly I'm so sick of working on the floor that I can't wait to assemble it.

    Next month I'll buy the axle jack which will make lifting the car a breeze. For now, I have a cheap bottle jack. It was an expensive month. 🙉

    I thought you had bought one of those Land Rovers and got strangely excited.

    I'm yet to feat British engineering. The pink/brownish one is actually pretty solid and next to be restored by the landlords of my garage. They just finished an E-type. Beautiful car.

    Amazing! Congrats on the 4-post. I wasn't aware 4-post lifts had the caster / mobility option, pretty awesome.

    I love how the lift manufacturer has the disclaimer: "Car not included"

    Thank you, Will! The lift is almost finished, the heavy lifting part is done -- took 6 people to lift the tracks, those bastards are heavy!

    Looks good. Maybe I missed you saying it somewhere already, but will you have enough height in that garage to store one car in the raised position and still be able to park a second one underneath?
