A Timely Reminder to Use Stands!

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/...eath-under-car

Very sad

But a reminder to not take short cuts and use stands.

Im sure anybody with common sense would already know this. I am also sure that people who do not already use jack stands will unfortunately not begin to use them just because of this thread.

I just hope everybody already uses common sense when playing around with vehicles.

Great chance to put another advertisement up for your shop Arie

Some how using this article as an example to generate more sales, the "do gooders" out there would have something to say..

But I do get your point there

Safety first, but not after I check whether my life is valued more than my wallet!
