im an apprentice mechanic for commercial vehicle centre. i spend my time doing servicing and maintenance heavy transport trucks and trailers. kinda like cars, but on a larger scale ;)

looks like you got your hands full there shane. ive helped a couple times work on stuff like that down here, and i dont think i can do it full time. rather heavy work

I used Wood as a stand once.....on the grass, in a motorcamp.....to change the diff in my 1600 a few years ago at a big datsun meet (SFOS)....and the car dropped, and came within inches of my chest :o
