Do you have a shop crane (engine lift, cherry picker)? That could possibly be used to lift it.... May give you an idea on how low to mount the ring to hook to.

To be effective the lift point would need to be at a height at or higher than the gauges, even though they should never be lifted with the gauges on and without the protective caps in place. Lower and you end up with the possibility of the unit being unstable when lifted. I don't really need to be able to load the torch at this time so I'm not going to worry about a lift point. Later I can always grind paint off and add one if needed. That's the nice part of owning a welder and a torch, modifications are not bad to do!

I own a Harley and a JEEP, still some people can't figure out why I'm broke!

The temp and humidity in my paint booth was finally low enough to spray primer. The RustOleum primer I used says to wait 24 hours before top coating so tomorrow I can spray color.

Another decent day, got some color sprayed. Breeze was changing directions some. Hope the over-spray didn't get to the neighbors black truck. But then again he is a Harley fan, nothing is more traditional for Harley that an orange and black color scheme!

It will look even nicer after it's all ready to use but it looks great now!
