Do you have, or have free access to, a lift?

Yes.  Otherwise it would be almost impossible to keep these cars going.

Sometimes, but not on a regular basis.

No.  I use stands or other devices to get underneath.

No.  If I need to get underneath the car goes to a shop.

Apologies PT, I forgot your geography! I'm just a subject from a poor colony (you may keep humming Queen now!)

I make my living working full time on 107, 116 and 126 cars.  This includes engine rebuilds, transmission rebuilds, steering box rebuilds etc.  I manage just fine with jack stands etc.  No lift.  I'm so used to it that when I'm forced to use a lift at other workshops I find it pretty inconvenient.
