DIY garage / ramp hire?

#1 Post by Johnny 216GSi » Thu May 17, 2018 1:59 am

Anyone know of a place in the West Midlands? (West of Birmingham...?)

I'm thinking I can do some of the underside tidy up myself but I don't even have "flat and level ground" available to jack the car.

I'd guess 1-2 days max and a drive-on ramp (or full-size inspection pit) would be ideal.

There used to be a place on the Fletchampstead Highway in Cov. Haven't checked if it's still there recently....
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

That's "Ramp & Wrench." It looks like they've stopped offering ramp hire and they're back to being a normal garage now. I will give them a shout just in case they still offer it...
