    My garage beams are reinforced concrete and have been up since 1974, so don’t think I can trust to sling a chain hoist around them.
    I do own a mobile engine hoist to which I have measured the clearance and I am 20cm short of the nose cone so nose cone comes out.
    Thanks for the help

    Take the front wheels off and drop the car using axle stands would that not work?

    ah, forgot that bit, silly me he says going over to sit in the corner ;-))
    However having thpught about it the hoist I used had feet which would splay out to give a greater and lower possible work area!
