Goats, take it from me. Get a lift
man, if your garage ceiling will accommodate it. In our previous house, I had almost a 10 foot ceiling height, and it was just enough to get either Spider or GTV 6 up high enough to work under it.
Like Nike says... just do it
. You will think you've gone to Alfa heaven, and I ain't talking about the one in Wisconsin, either! 😁
Back in 2009, when we bought out previous house, I made up my mind to get a lift that would work in my garage, and I never regretted it. Neither did my back or shoulders. I was getting old enough to hate my creeper, frankly. The house we have now, our retirement house, is smaller in area but has a very nice deep garage, and a ceiling height of 10'-10" to 11 feet. Hell, I can raise the cars up to max height, and now stand up straight under them and work away. A pleasure! And because it's so easy to use, you enjoy keeping up the Alfa maintenance better, also.
Get a lift, guys, if you have the ceiling height. You'll enjoy it more and more every year. You'll spend probably $1900 to $2300, and you can get an ALI certified lift for that, 6000 to 8000 lb. capacity. It cost me $650 to get mine set up by pros, back in 2009.
