    Strut compressor stand from engine stand

    I did not have a good place in my shop to wall mount my new strut spring compressor.
    Instead of building a new stand I used an engine stand. (I had more than one kicking around the shop.)
    This allows me move near the car I am working on.
    I simply bolted the compressor to engine mounting plate. This also allows me to rotate the strut to different positions if I need.
