so were thiknig that out next house will be built custom for us. im screaming for a lift in the garage (three or four car garage with one of the extras having a lift), or failing that, a pit at least. shes saying no. so how do i convince her? after all, its her opinion thats important, not mine.
Tell her or let her read this: If you're in the garage tinkering with cars, you won't be out somewhere else with someone else. Better you spend your time with old cars than young mistresses.
You say it'* her opinion that counts, is she the one that does the most auto repairs in your household?
Speaking from personal experience, using a lift is much better than a pit. It makes an unbelievable difference when doing suspension and drivetrain work.
why is she so against it? is it the money aspect, or just having a lift in the garage? if it'* money, that lift will pay for itself and then some. if it'* having two posts and a couple of arms, tell her she can..umm...plant flowers around the posts? i dunno, that'* a tough one.
