My only thought is, that is a great way for me to hold mine up since I need my jack stands this weekend and all four are holding my red car up which is currently in tub form.

I was tempted since I've got all the spares for it. But metalman hands off rollers just to get rid of them... so why bother with a tub? Oh- won't the tub get in the way of your current project? I know it would for me.

If you have the room for it then go for it.

I just don't like buying future projects when not having current projects finished. Tends to **** up your focus and then nothing gets done.

I didn't mean physically get in the way- more like drain focus - that's what it does to me. I've only got X amount of time to spend doing car stuff and that's usually divided by the cars I own and racing.

I know you didnt mean it that way!
