the engine hoist saga continues...

After Cain's time lifeguarding at the sea of stupidity in search of an engine hoist, The Lifeguard at the Sea of Stupidity., he set out to find one elsewhere so as to not purchase it from the troglodyte swimming in the shallow end. Some days, life just doesn't want to cut you a break. Everything and anything that can go wrong will. Swimming against the current I suppose.

But today was not that day.

This morning he called a guy who'd just listed a 2ton hoist on craigslist. Cool guy, happened to have an engine stand he said he'd throw in. Cain took Grace over there to purchase said engine hoist and engine stand. Well turns out, the engine stand happened to be missing a few minor parts and the gentleman was so upset that he couldn't find the all the pieces he tossed in a hydrolic tube bender... for free. Said if Chris didn't take it he would be insulted.

Chris is out there right now drilling (with the new airtools my dad sent over) the engine stand for brackets to bolt it together and the engine's coming out of the Fairlane soon as he does.... and I'm getting a roll cage because a welder is next on the list.

Awesome deal. Hard to find people with heart anymore like that gentleman.

Make sure ol' Cain updates his shaggin' waggin' thread!

Cain is like a kid on Christmas morning right now. I don't think I'll get him out of the garage anytime soon. Oh, and the guy, who happened to have the same truck we have, was so tickled he wants Chris to call him when the Fairlane is done or if he needs any help. Super nice guy.

i love when things happen like that, i had a hole string of them recently, free gas grill, made money by selling old 32" tires and buying barely used 33" mt's, and so on. i'm due for some bad luck comin up i'll bet. the trick is not being suprised when it happens, being on the top end is great, but just remember you always fall

It sure seems you two have a lot of that kind of "luck". Maybe you just inspire people to step up.

Cain what kind of tube bender is it? Is it the harbor freight tube kinker or an actual tube bender? I'm gonna be kinda jealous if it's the latter.
