Renting place or lift to maintain/repair your Benz
I know some of you have their own garages where you can fix your cars in peace.
For all of you who don't, where do you work on your car if you have to raise it?
Do you rent a lift by the hour?
If yes, where?
I live in a densely populated area at the coast in LA and you never see people work on their cars in the street. Never. There's just too much risk getting injured by passing traffic.
When I was still living in Austria we rented a lift on a gas station for a couple of hours for an engine switch (it was on a 1955 VW bug - we transported the replacement engine in lieu of the passenger seat in another bug).
So, where do you go when you want to fix your car and haven't got your own garage?
Any tips and success stories welcomed! Thanks!
PS: need to replace the two front oxygen sensors this time.
