Thread: Wheel Skates

  1. #1

    Default Wheel Skates

    Does anyone have a set of wheel skates I could borrow?

    I need to move napping car about 3 feet to the left.

    How about the floor jack trick? I have a heavy duty one, if you have another.

    I tried that today and failed just don't have much room. The Cadillac is in a 10' wide self-store and it is 6' 6" wide so not much room. Can't push it outside due to the incline in the lot, I'd have no hope of pushing it back inside even if I got lots of help. Extra Bonus the Self Store folks frown on working on the car on premisis...

    Starter died and I need to pull it the last time I put it away I got it about 4" off the wall on the passenger side. Of course, the starter is on the passenger side.

    Nope. Bigger Machines we always have riggers move.

    Put the drivers side on jack stands and slide in from that side to get to the starter?

    I don't know if you noticed but I am a full figured guy. But it is about my only choice.
