Any chance you could please post some pics of your car (or preferably a Fiero) sitting on this hoist so I can better visualize it?
The lift is removable, so the hydraulic lines can be disconnected and the posts unbolted from the floor for storage. They have wheels on the posts so they're easily maneuverable..
My shop also has a 12 foot tall ceiling. My Fieros can be lifted up to the max height of 44 inches without any clearance issues. The hood and rear decklid have been open when I have lifted it and they will touch the bottom of my hanging ceiling lights which hang about a foot below the roof joists. If you have a lower ceiling make sure you check the clearances, though, I imagine, even with an 8 foot garage ceiling, the cars would probably still be able to be lifted to max capacity.
My GT on the lift
My 85 Fiero Sport on the lift while doing my LeMons racecar build
Me helping a friend a fellow Fiero owner with the exhaust on his Formula
My neighbor busted his shifter on his civic last thanksgiving... so rather than jack it up in the dark, I told him to bring it over... fixed it in 20 minutes and he didn't have to lay down on his back in the dark on a cold driveway
When I redid the exhaust on my 86 GT... this is what finally nudged me to get the lift... I had put up with crawling around under the car long enough and put off this purchase for too long. When I finally got under there the last time and was having trouble getting the headpipe loose... I said that's it. I'm not touching the car until I get the max jax. And I didn't.
I hope this helps... If there's any other questions about it, please let me know,.
