    yep not a problem.. if you dont drag the motor over it with sharp edges/bolts sticking out, it will hold up very well.. and oh so easy to clean up... :clap:clap:clap:clap

    ill prob. end up using MELAMINE MDF board since formica is more work and more expensive.... i would have to put down 1/8" plywood anyways so might as well finish it in one process instead of a couple...

    You've got me thinking...

    I sold my '94 RSL and replaced it with a '96 GS. But I miss my RSL for road trips...

    Seems like this would be a great combo and RS's are very affordable now.

    Thanks,

    97 2WD Ranger LB, bought new by my Uncle and was a hand-me-down to me in 2001. 116K miles, 3.0V6 AT with upgraded 4.10 gear and beefed up suspension. Mechanically excellent and Mobil1 since I've owned it. :thumb

    Side note about garage space or lack of.
    I recently bought a No-Mar tire changer on CL, actually swapped a revolver for it, and didn't want to leave it mounted to the floor of the garage.

    So I have this wood floor 5'x10' trailer and made me some 1/2" T-nuts and will mount the changer in the trailer when I need it. When I'm done with it I can unbolt it and store it in a corner of the garage. Secured the T-nuts from the under side so they're permanent.
    Most likely will get as much use as the trailer. :lol3

    I used to do that, but, with a flatbed truck.

    I bought a No-Mar hitch mount and haven't looked back. It's so easy to just back the truck up to the door and the slide the changer into the receiver. Furthermore, it allows me to go to a customer's location to do their tires.

    Updated and cleaned up a bit. Feels like a lot more space now.

    Ma and Pa's house is built into a hill like that, as is Pa's garage. Never any issues as long as there are proper weeping tiles and adequate waterproofing on the exterior of the foundation. I was a teenager in '89 when we did the membrane and tar on Dad's garage...I think I spent a whole year with tar on my fingers that wouldn't come off...

    Seriously though...what kind of questions do you specifically have?
