I can't imagine ANYONE that owns an MG to not be a DIYer, so I figure red that I would share one of my favorite links:

http://www.homemadetools.net

I've found some great little ideas and tools in almost all of it's sections, but the automotive has been very handy, especially for alignments, ramps, etc.

Hope that you also find it useful!

Regards,
CJ

Hello from Miami Clif, and thanks for that link smiling smiley It IS hard to imagine owning an MG (or anything vintage) w/out being totally DIY, but in my carport, sleeping next to my GT, is an unfortunate example of what happens when you try to keep one and have no fix-it abilities at all.

The MGB in question (a friend's '80 LE) is a rolling disaster. I've never seen so many mistakes made on 1 vehicle before eye rolling smiley It runs strong, thanks to a '70 hi comp motor and some sort of fast road cam, but that's the only positive to it. He has spent a bloody fortune on looks, gadgets, totally wrong parts, and bling ... on a B that he's wrecked THREE times (last time totalled and re-bought). It's so distorted the wheelbase is 1/2" shorter on driver's side eye popping smiley But it looks cool ...

Great site. Was looking at this car lift solution

Homemade car lift

Looks like a simple solution to an otherwise expensive piece of equipment. I did begin to wonder that given the lack of vertical stabilization could these stands roll if enough torque was placed on the car? Then again why wouldn't the same be true of jack stands?

Any thoughts?



"He rides 'er low on the hip, on the side he's got "Bound for Glory" in red, white and blue flash paint
He leans on the hood telling racing stories, the kids call him Jimmy the Saint".."And I said, "Hey kid, you think that's oil? Man, that ain't oil, that's blood"
I wonder what he was thinking when he hit that storm, or was he just lost in the flood?"
