    C180 Kompressor 2003 1.8
    Hi

    I am working on a C180 Kompressor for Breaking. Basically it was supposed to be a repair but its not worth it. I have a garage where I am going to be working on it. At some point I am going to be taking the suspension out so the car will have no wheels so the the bare shell with be on the floor which will make it very difficult to move out of the garage. I have seen a few dollys but I was wondering if there was anything that would be able to prop the car up on wheels so that it is movable while there is no suspension/wheels on the car.

    Thanks for any help.

    Should be easy enough to make some dollys with some plywood and castors.

    A B&Q trolley with the handle cut off works really really well !

    So that's why there are fewer trolleys in the local canal.

    The trolley dolly idea seems to be winning.
