There's a similar device in the garage of the house I moved into last year. It's built right into the floor, and the lift pad is a 4x6' flat. I built a couple of risers out of 4x4 to reach the jacking points, and it works pretty well. The whole engine compartment is exposed. The only major thing that is inaccessible is the exhaust system; I also couldn't use it when I was replacing a parking brake cable, but that's a pretty rare thing. Mine is hydraulic, and has no locking points, so I'm a little concerned about the possibility of a hydraulic failure, however unlikely that may be. Anyone have any ideas for a fail-safe system?
