Car lift

Hello all,

I am considering installing a 2 post or 4 post car lift to store my E type. [2 post is of less width]

My garage is of 'single car' width but with fair amount of headroom.

any recommendations for suitable lift type/ stockist?

many thanks

Re: spare keys.

Hello Gents,

re; key.
Am happy with a 'new' replacement key. Once I obtain ref nr from lock area does anyone know whom I should then approach ?

I assume quoting the VIN nr alone will not suffice?
