    This morning I got the upright supports fit and tacked in place. I also got a trans mount taken care of. I still have to cut and weld some ears on the areas I cut to flatten the plate out. Tomorrow I will finish making the mounting plate that bolts to the X member. My original idea of using the tubular X I made wasn't going to work. Just not enough clearance.

    How many board feet did you consume in the stands. And what's the height? If you don't mind me asking..

    Counting 2x4's there're 22 in each stand, looks like 18" long so (18x3.5x1.5)/144 = 0.66 board feet x 22 = 14.33 x 4 stands = 57.75 board feet. More to the point, 22x18x4 = 1584", divided by 12 = 132', divided by 8= 16 1/2 2x4's 8 feet long. The stands are 11 boards high, but they support from a wide point, so I'd say they lift ~10 boards high x 1.5" per board or 15". You can also make those where they stack, layer by layer....

    How's my math, Ryan?

    I like your stands, it gets that thing up nicely. Now just add some big casters and you can roll it around...just kidding.

    My son has been doing a bunch of work on his Mustang, and picked up four of these "Race Ramps Wheel Cribs"
    race ramps.png
    Two pieces on each, so you can "stage" it up 6" per corner, then another 6" to get it up a foot to bottom of tire. Super light weight, high density foam. They're very cool.

    He put on a pair of frame stiffeners that run beneath the rockers, so he can now jack it at any point, too.

    I used 2 different sized boards so I can try to use them on the camaro, 40, and maybe the front of the vette. 2 are 17" and 2 are 19". You are correct and they give 15" of lift. I should ave counted how many boards they took. But since I used scraps at first, I wouldn't have had a good idea. I did get 10 to build the last 2 and I had about 1.5 left over and I just got 8' 2x4s.

    So yes, your math is spot on Roger.

    Those are pretty nice. I haven't seen them before. I see they're around $130 for 2 sets. I've got under $80 in the wood stands. That's the only reason I did them is cost. Every where I can save will equal more parts.

    I wondered if I added some brackets to the sides and slid a 2x6s in them and made a box connecting all 4, if they'd be secure enough and not try to tip. Maybe they'd work on some shorter ones.

    I got quite a bit done this morning but it sure doesn't feel like it. I made the brackets for the trans mount lower. I took some c channel I had and cut the sides off making 2 pieces of angle. Then I cut a groove in one side and rolled the lip to add a mounting flange. I then welded where I cut the groove. I probably could have used 2 pieces of angle iron but I didn't have any wide or thick enough.

    I also got the center piece cut from some 1/4" plate I had laying behind the shop. I'll have to find the spot for the trans mount and finish the lower tomorrow. I'm trying to keep the trans mount lower plate flush with the bottom of the X member tubes so it doesn't become an anchor point on speed bumps. I also am making it so it ties in each side and will make it like a X member again. Once I get that done and mounted, I can take off my braces under the frame.

    I started cutting the filler pieces for the engine stands. I got the RH one done. I've got to decide how much clearance to leave for the steering shaft double u joint to go through for the left side. I don't want it to be a PITA to work on but I'd like to add some support too.
