I put the Lotus up on my Atlas Scissors Lift
lift this afternoon and performed my very first mod... installing a MWR Lift Point Kit
The lift works great for the Lotus. I drive up on my 2 x 10 ramps, remove the engine access panel, position the lifting arms under points B and C, and lift away.
I immediately ran into an issue with the car. It seems someone used the end of the frame rails as a jack point (maybe stands) and bent the aluminum rail.
The prudent approach seemed to be a careful straightening operation using a woodworking clamp (it fit perfectly).
This led to a second issue involving the MWR Lift Point components. The bracket and hose on the drivers side (2008 Exige) will not clear the lift kit.
This required cutting the aluminum plate to clear the bracket and hose.
Buy one of these Rockwell BladeRunner
saws... You will not regret it!
The modified lower plate installed.
The passenger side components did not have to be modified but had the same type of damage to the frame rail. The lift point kit does a very nice job of "sandwiching" and reinforcing the frame rail.
A "long" shot with the new lifting points installed. First mod feels good!
