    I really recommend upgrading your masterlock padlocks to abus or something a little higher quality. You can get through just about any masterlock with a toothpick or a palmed rock. Source: personal experience and lockpicking lawyer.

    Hey Ray
    Have you ever thought about putting a 4 post lift with a slide jack in the middle so much easier to use instead of a 2 post lift in your new area

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jafopt says:

    So how do you get the remnants of that wreck outta the shop?

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Me Z says:

    Work smarter, not harder!

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Desrocher says:

    I watched you tear the motor out,, did I miss any other episodes?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Madd Dawg says:

    Please explain ignition Dwell.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Scott Wyant's Drones and Stuff says:

    That was awesome!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Coudriet says:

    Dude ate major shit with that one!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Bernauer says:

    Very cool Ray!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Corbett Knowles says:

    I actually seen that done when a lift in a shop worked in had a problem and wouldn't lower all the way down due to mechanical issue with a lift

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bas Bass says:

    Expecting a awesome project!

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Miata Channel says:

    You're playing the song of my people here, even though it is an auto-tragic. Really going to enjoy this series.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack says:

    Yep. My drive axle grease was purple. When i crashed my car. The axles were probably less than 3 months old. Cause i was having vibration issues in my gas pedal. And axles didnt fix it, nor did the engine mounts. Spark plugs was little brown no oil burning and just normal wear.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Weaver says:

    Loading that Miata straight off the towtruck safely onto the lift was a work of brilliance. I doff my cap to you Ray 👏👏👏

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Alexander says:

    wish l could be there ! good day.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Mahoney says:

    Ok, now that was impressive.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan Roberts says:

    I gotta give you credit – that is pretty clever for Florida man!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mice InOz says:

    Sounds like the red one has done the timing and bent all the valves. You wouldn't want to fix a known engine rather than risk an engine/transmission from a crash that you do not know?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Fitz says:

    Cleverer than ever!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BatBat says:

    That's a slick way to transfer trash. You know you drank too much liquor when your car has to be lifted directly off the wrecker.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Hall says:

    I like how you used the lift to get the car off the truck.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars postersm 71 says:

    I must say that’s the first time I’ve ever seen that!!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Wolff says:

    Noticed you use a MasterLock #3 on your towtruck box. You do realise that offers about as much security as a "keep out" sign in fine print…

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sniperlif3 says:

    Two folks who know the others equipment is exactly how the world should work. My job revolves around knowing at a minimum 3 other professions. It is sad that I say minimum, but to prevent being screwed over we need to know 5 total professions. If we wanted to be the best at what we do we need to know around 8 specialty jobs outside of our own. People hate military, but that is the kind of thing we do because we have to.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars T W says:

    That…… That was impressive!

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars News Now Riverside Sgt Rock says:

    Love that "Gravity!"

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Exploring Online says:

    Come in Raymond, it's not totalled, replace a few airbags check the battery and off you go

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Ragatz says:

    "This is not what you want to wake up to on a Fridai night when you've been out at the bar" Especially if you don't own a Mazda!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Walter Butscher says:

    That was a cool pick off the tow truck bed

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars N B says:

    raaay wheres my vid 😛

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Mcguire says:

    👍

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ezequiel cordero says:

    Impressed with how tow truck was able to deliver car to lift in garage 👏. When you set up lift so as to receive vehicles this way, proves you were ready 👍 to be owner of your garage

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew says:

    Creative solution… well done!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Josh Kogel says:

    Nice! Kind of wonder how many times this process has been done

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars badassbiker1974 says:

    Hahaha! Ray giving us all 'the bird' while pressing the lift button!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JesusLovesYou says:

    nice

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars sidney snottley says:

    Impressed.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars foxpon105 says:

    I feel so sorry for the MX-5 machine. It's a most fun car I ever experienced. It doesn't need power. It's agile like a fox. Getting a car fun to drive at low to medium speeds is an art. Poor girl.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ivan Olsen says:

    hope the engine is all right

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tomas Nagy says:

    A little wax and that black Miata would buff right out.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars YoderTexas says:

    Pure genus.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Angelo says:

    Ummm? Been with ray for a while now and you would not see this content if he didn't leave that ??shop?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ken Herlihy says:

    Haha that was cool Ray 👍 I’ve never seen that done before
