Thanks WC & Rapid. I had a truck lined up to lift the shear onto the truck, but I know those guys are busy this time of year & I hated to bug them about my little project. So, tonight I got this bright idea to build brackets for the floor jacks that would pick the shear up, but would not get in the way when I rolled the truck under it.

I used some scrap stuff, nothin' pretty, but it worked. The bottom angle iron that slides under the shear between the feet has a lip that wraps around to the inside of the shear. When I jack it up it locks onto the shear, simple but effective.

Slipped it in place, drilled the mounting holes & bolted it in place.

Even the shears pedal linkage clears. Once the swivel wheels get straightened out it rolls surprisingly easy for 3,000 lbs.

Table fits. Needs an aluminum top & there's a little more to get the fence finished.

Messed around with the font end alignment (fiberglass front end). Once I got it lined up a little better it looks like it will fit better than I had thought.

Jeff got his bottle warmer installed today. I'm about to order a shifter & cooler for the trans. We'll have to make some brackets to mount the stuff to Jeff's caah, eventually it all goes in the "Z".

Well, since the "Z" isn't going anywhere anytime soon, We're going to stick my Rossler 210 in Jeff's camaro for a while just to see how it works.
Today we ordered a nitrous converter & an SFI flex plate & shield along with a Hurst quarter stick & CO2 shiftnoid to tie into Jeff's MSD box.
