If you think that lifting a car body off the chassis using a two post lift is a little wonky, then I can imagine that seeing Derek lift the body off of a Corvette using the four post lift will probably blow your mind or piss you off. But that’s exactly what Derek is trying to do in this video. He’s got a donor C5 Corvette that he wants the whole drivetrain out of, so he starts pulling bolts and then uses some not-so-big ratchet straps to reach around the entire body so it can be lifted up by the 4-post. It is entertaining as usual, but it really does go better than most might think.
Since I worked alone for years, I’m pretty good at thinking up solutions like this one and I totally approve. I’m sure the guys at Wildfire Lifts also approve, I mean why wouldn’t they!
