    Mobile auto repair station - GIF

    Mobile auto repair station. Video produced with stop-motion. Undeniably gimmicky, but still interesting.

    Gimmicky or not I do like the portable lift except I'm not too sold on it not having solid rails for the scissors to roll on
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    That's is the cat's meow.

    There seems to be a lot of space above the storage compartment and in front (behind) the panel that seem to be about two feet inside the back doors. I would guess that is where the generator and air compressor is?

    I am a little disappointed! A lot of effort to blow up the tyres and check the fluid levels and no automatic pop-up shelter, what happens if it rains?
    No, very clever set-up a lot of time, effort and design has gone in to this build.
    Thank you for sharing

    Meh...
    I wonder on actual deployment and set-up time; sure not 19 seconds depicted in GIF. Those elements have to be charged for ROI on the rig, in addition to work ordered by customer.
    But I guess a couple generations brought up on "The Transformers" get entertained.
