driving today which has been upgraded and modified.

After I drove the EV around the Detroit area, I drove it back to the company
and right on to a lift rack, the same type that is use in service stations.

was the right size where the front bumper press against the front panel and
the tires had just enough room to go between the fender wells.

Blocking was fasten down to the floor between the fender walls and tires.
Addition blocking was place at the rear tires. A press pack of heavy duty
cardboard was place behind the rear bumpers, where the U-Haul doors would
press against the bumpers and doors.

inlay, could not do this with the plastic bumpers, so that type of car would
have to be chain down to the floor D-rings by the frame.

It took me 2 day's to drive from Troy to Great Falls, Montana with no
