Hi. I'm Doug. I work with twenty great guys in St Louis at Doug Jenkin's Custom Hot Rods, and we're going to do some work today on Expert Village. Now, let's put the car on the rack and get it lifted up a little bit so we can stick the engine in easily. Mark is carefully choosing places to put the pads. On this arm he's going to have to put a shorter riser on that pad. He'll pick places that are sturdy. This is a full frame car. It's easy to grab full places on the car. You can do it on both sides. And it's real handy to have a lift. If you don't, just make sure you use jack stands. don;'t ever put yourself in a position where you can get yourself hurt doing this kind of thing. The lifts we have are good quality. Now Mark is going to lift the car up and take a look to get everything lined up to stick the engine in.
