Thinking it may be easier to do work on the Nomad - in particular cleaning which you Atom folk dont have such an issue with I appreciate, but also raising car to do brakes/wheels etc etc
Any recommendations appreciated. So far scanning Pistonheads seems to point to www.automotechservices.co.uk as the go to...but I havent actually checked the nomad/atom would fit on the smaller ones due to width.
Thanks in advance
It'd be easy with a ramp type one buuuut, does that not then stop you doing wheel/tyre work, since they're what the ramp uses.

Luckily my garage is 3m high although I had to modify the width to make it fit. I believe they now sell a narrower version.
Rear pads locate on the engine bay tube joint and I use a couple of plywood spreaders under the front wishbones. I would like to think the Nomad would have similar points.
The car lives on the lift when not in use leaving a good working area below.

Something in the back of my head tells me they're banned now though (?)
They collect fumes and stuff? Maybe I'm making that up...

As Karl said, petrol fumes can pool in the bottom and ignite, if there's a fire in there or under the car when you're down there, there's not really any means of escape.
