Bits and bobs update….
The high lift jack has featured in a few posts lending a hand here and there. It was battered, tatty but worked just fine. It’s a very versatile piece of kit and makes jacking the vehicle up quick and secure… secure enough to get an axle stand under the vehicle anyway. Not a good idea to work under any vehicle held up by a jack alone.
I inherited this jack when I bought a Series 3 in the UK. The vehicle is no longer with me but I kept the jack. Picture of Gracie below for posterity…..
LGL will end up wearing this on the back end of the roof, so it needed a bit of a tidy up. I thought about buying new one… but it would look too… new.
It’s a pretty primitive piece of kit, so I didn’t go to the hassle of taking it fully apart. Yeah, I know but after a few trips to the garage that have yielded more things that need to be looked at a again, I fancied some quick gratification… all part of my existential development.
And now for the nostalgia bit… Gracie with the highlift on the roof rack… Aldbourne, England, 2010
