    Just a little something to get more comfortable than reaching across the back of the engine.
    Blocks atop of the battery and a length of plank laid across the blocks.
    Climb aboard and lay down, much nicer than straining across the top of the engine. LOL

    If it was a ford it would probably be a factory option

    YUP, I like the padded idea, the only problem between them and this is, this one is handy and free too. LOL

    That appears to be mighty comfy, even has steps to get up onto it and to stand on.
    I might look into getting Me one a them things. Need some other stuff first though.

    YUP, I do have some steel laying around, a couple of welders, a metal chop saw{that has teeth on the blade} and grinders and about everything it would take.

    Have seen a padded creeper attached to a motor lift / jack. Padded, portable, and adjustable. Just need a step stool to get to the creeper :)

    I was trying to think of how to build an attachment for the floor hoist, but after thinking about it, I came to the conclusion that it would be easier to incorporate the under hood creeper onto the spare engine stand, might need some casters with locks on them though. LOL
