Thanks for the reply, more food for thought...

👍 If you go for a two poster, call automotech and ask them for a price to deliver and install for you. About £150 more and a bloke turns up with the lift, a small hiab and all the kit. Fitted in a couple of hours. I didn’t know and the Mrs and I played hulk strength with levers and all sorts moving the flipping posts. They’re proper heavy

We have lift off 🚀 It lifted, it stayed up there. I can get it fully up to max lift inside without hitting the roof. Fab.  I’ve dropped it down to a few inches off the floor overnight just to check

Project "Get High" has started on the weekend. Need a C type circuit breaker as it trips on fire up (B type won't take the start up amperage apparently), torquing down and I'm ready to lift! 

Been procrastinating over it for a good couple of years. I'm enjoying swinging the tools. Saved a few quid servicing (we'll forget about the few quid spent on calliper messing) lol. I'm old. Bit fat.

Thank, yeah I read your notes on that. My feeling is that the two poster is just too big for my space and I don't know about the concrete given I would have it to the edge of my garage base. It probably needs an area around the post fixing. The scissor seems a good alternative.

Yup, it’s a fair size bit of kit. If you’re tight on space go scissor. A full height scissor is the best of both worlds but a bit spendy.

i have this one one but other than testing it once I have never used it. It seems to work well (especially the tilt bit) but does seem awefully precarious!

Hi folks, sorry to jump in. I have one of these portable tilting types of lifts, I got a deal on one marketed by Sealey. I don't have space for anything bigger/higher, but because it tilts and doesnt cover much of the underside access is really good.  It is great for welding my E30 wagon but I am yet to lift my 911SC and 964 on it.

Can Mr Wingnonut or other offer any advice on where best to place the ramps against the 911 car body - this pic is a good start but any more detail for lifting the front and rear without damaging the shell?  I finally have all the bits I need for SSIs so itching to get cracking 🙂

No detailed photos I am afraid Johnny but my 3.2 has jacking points which I think your SC won’t have. I used these to place the ramps on.

I still haven’t used the lift and really should get shot of it as I can’t see me ever doing so. Much more suited to a smaller lighter car I feel.

Reporting back as promised. OK, on my SC it has worked great. Needed to drive onto two planks of wood to get clearance. It is placed just against the flat floor, with some strips of foam and extra foam rubber at the back where it sits against the seam. Mounting it just aft of the rear ARB mount is perfect for pivoting it if needed, with a resting state on the front wheels. Its the perfect size for my garage and storage space.  

Its SSI O'clock, finally!
