As you all know, Bonneville Forum is the place to go for help with fixing and modding your Bonnevilles. In providing our members with technical advice we are always concerned that you use safe work practices at all times while working on your vehicle.
With this in mind, I wanted to address three key elements of working on your car where safe practics are critical; lifting your car so you can work underneath it, proper work place lighting, and which after market products are appropriate for your vehicle.
The first rule of safe lifting is to always use oak, never pine.
The second rule of safe lifting is to always ensure the vehicle is properly blocked before starting work underneath the car.
Now that you have a good understanding of safe lifting practices, the next area of concern is proper work place lighting. Recognizing that not everyone has a garage to work in, if you are working in your driveway or in the street in front of your house, it is perfectly acceptable to use local municipal lights sources. However, you should always ensure the local municipal light source has fresh bulbs of the correct wattage.
Now that we have covered some of the aspects of safe work practices, another area of safety concern is to ensure any parts you install on your car will not affect safe operation of your vehicle. Of particular concern are the after market products you add to enhance your enjoyment of your vehicle. The main concern here is to make absolute certain these products are secured to your vehicle in a robust manner.
Feel free to share your ideas on safe work practices.
