The "new" MGA is "slammed" on always-flat tires.
Would love to borrow a low-profile jack to get her up onto some stilettos (axle stands).

Anyone care to loan one? I can pay with beer or a small infant (Elliot is heading into the terrible-twos zone)....

Lemmeno - thx!
Terrence

Hey Terrence, gimme a shout, I have several choices that may work. How much room do you actually have? Looks like Dorothy will have a cool roommate!

Holy crap Terrence, most of what's wrong with that car looks like it'll buff out. Nice score man.
As Dwayne says, Dorothy will have a cool roommate.
Those tires might take air long enough to get a regular floor jack under. I have a small portable air compressor and an air tank "pig" (oh crap......just remembered my kid has it in Red Deer) if they are any help.

Terrence,

If the tires look as though they will hold air, I have a small portable air compressor and hose you can use. I'm not far from where the car is located, so it won't be too far out of your way to pick them up.

Good idea... I've got a compressor to try out, but I'm really not expecting the tires to hold anything except mice.

I also bought a small bottle jack so I'm sure I'll get'er up one way or another!

Thanks for the suggestion!
I ended up getting a small 2-ton bottle jack that did the trick.

Cheers!
