Hey vett3, welcome

I'm installing a heavy old 2 post lift.. I was almost done with it when my electric winch died RIP. Gotta find another one

Working on the vette will be even more enjoyable with this lift

Guys,

Can finally put some money in the vette!!

I'm ordering parts from different stores in the USA.

Unfortunately, one of the online stores I order from (Autozone) won't accept money from my paypal account because they don't accept foreign Paypals.

So, could I transfer the total to one of you guys' paypal account and could you then order it for me? I'll give details about item and shipping address in pm.
