We’ve seen lots of pictures of longtime reader Peter P’s car dolly, but this pic of the project being moved has to be our favorite. This shot captures that moment when, if a passerby happened to glance over, it would look like events had gotten quite out of hand. They aren’t, but it might look that way.

Props to you and the crew for pushing through the dolly build and getting it on the dolly, and also for not letting the project stall because you couldn’t figure out how to get at it without using its own suspension. Well-played, sir, well-played indeed.

    I figure, what’s the point in owning an engine hoist if you don’t occasionally attempt stupid things with it?

    I’m just happy it’s up on the dolly. Finally have shop space again!

    Having been a part of this little adventure, it’s possible that the hypothetical passerby might not have been totally incorrect in his/her assessment of the situation…

    But hey, all’s well that ends well right 🙂

    One of my goals in life is to invent a line of tools that allows a person to do things like that without help. I want to create stuff that lets you do things like build an entire house (basement through roof), strip and re-build a car (or truck), dig a swimming pool, build a garage, pave a driveway, etc. without needing to call a buddy. Except to watch.

    Good job guys. For me, figuring out things like that are part of the fun.

    Well, next time I’m going to get a sturdy length of steel beam and put a bunch of eye bolts in it so I can just lift the beam with the hoist and attach the eye bolts to the various mount points in the car. That should allow me to just lift it straight up without worrying too much about it.
