Ooh I stand corrected Bow down Bow down

Where on earth did I get 3.3 tonnes from? Maybe that's the max gross weight fully loaded. 2012 Westminster

I've got a feeling the 07MY TDV8 is just over 2.7 tonnes, 2710kg according to the owner's manual. Ed

Tut Tut Stanley old chap. Tonnes, as in metric, i.e. 1000kg. A Ton is an imperial ton and 2240 lbs or 1016 kg.

You should know that being a similar age to me old boy, you would have learnt imperial at school. Laughing Laughing

What it was to learn imperial at school, then metric at Engineering College, then going to live in the USA so going back to imperial all over again. Amazing really, the metric system is so much easier but I still think in feet and inches. Mind you, (Salisbury) I do recall someone had a set of imperial A/F spanners Whistle Bow down Bow down Bow down

And if you want a really amusing example, try the railways. Everything is still measured in miles, chains, yards etc. Of course, with Swindon being the heart of the GWR you knew that anyway. Thumbs Up

Tonnes, you're not allowed to use tons for sale anymore I think. Ed

No, us mere mortals are supposed to use metric, yet the national railways has zero metric units in use, none, zilch. But it was really nice to see how many market traders took to selling in units of 454 grammes (one UK pound) Laughing Tortoise wins again.

Yes Stan, a Tonne is metric and a Ton is Imperial. 16 kilos more in an Imperial Ton. Thumbs Up

Unless you live in the USA where they have Girlie pints of 16 fl oz against the British pint of 20 fl oz. Probably explains why they thought I was an alcoholic when I lived there Laughing

Looks good daveenty! Thumbs Up Please paste up some pictures of the FFRR when it's up on your lift.


Sorry to be a bit late replying to this request, but today's the first day I've had a chance to put the RR on the ramp due to my obsession with trying to keep the Merc out of the bad weather. Laughing

I didn't take it to full height, probably another good few inches to go, though the hydraulics seemed to struggle a lot more than with the Jeep. Go there in the end though. Mr. Green




High enough for cleaning wheels, sills etc. though I wouldn't like to do much underneath where it is, and I'm not lifting the garage roof any higher than it is now, life's too short. Smile Dave

I can only dream of a garage like yours. Thumbs Up

I remember the build thread on it many years ago over on the Mercedes forums,, though unfortunately I neither have the space required, the height or the concrete for a 2 or 4 poster. Believe me, a lot of compromising was tried but usually fell at the first hurdle. Sad Dave

47p2. Do you have problems jacking the RR up off a four post lift ?
Sorry there's probably a simple explanation, only never thought about it before.

Easiest way is with a jacking beam. e.g. http://www.ac-hydraulic.dk/fr/produits/tra...20l-sd26l/

Don't know what 47p2 has but suspect it might be a possibility. Question John
