    Think of installing a scissor lift to quickly change wheels on cars and detail. Anyone else use? For my 488, testarossa, xke, cobra and TVR all different lengths and chassis .. Will it work?

    Have a Bendpak MD6-xp scissor lift. Great tool!
    Never had my former TR on but 348 spider, F355 spider and current 360 spider all on with 0 issues.
    Good quality and support. Easy use.
    Do need to build ramps to allow low clearance cars over lift. I doubled up 2x12s.

    Have you considered a QuickJack lift? I have one for similar use and works great and likely easier than a scissor lift.

    There are a few threads under Detailing and Showroom Section on this.

    I’ve been toying with the same idea for some time and given various restrictions in my garage, will probably go for a Strongman mid rise. Looks nicely over engineered!

    There are some useful YouTube videos on it and selecting an appropriate lift.

    Will have to be next winter now; spent all my pocket money this year!!!
