Spoiler looks good bro! After we talked, I think I'm going to build one side of my bench higher to put larger things underneath...good call! Keep the updates coming.

Yes I made my workbench 38" high to accommodate more things underneath....its a little higher than standard but it makes it nice to work on as it is at arm level...

I made my work bench about the same height. Makes more sense to make room underneath and keep your back from hurting from looking down so much. Glad you liked my wrapping job on the studs. LOL

It makes it much easier....Funny part about my workbench....I measured the height of the engine stand when it is put together in the store and based the height of it to make sure I could fit it underneath when not in use....I Knew I was going to do the swap at some point so I was prepared!!!

Waiting for parts to get here....

Did manage to get the engine put on the engine stand.....Was a little surprised on how high it was

Also for those of you who are looking or wondering what bolts to use here are the specs M12x1.25x80 (12mm bolt size, thread pitch of 1.25 and length of 80mm)

I also picked up some washers to space it out...3 on each bolt worked perfect

Added a some extra support in the front as a precaution...The stand is rated for 1000lbs but I feel better with the 2x4 in the front
