As I am "finally nearing the completion of widening the doorway on my workshop so I will soon be able to "fit the Opel in there for the Winter.

I am wondering if any one uses "car dollies" to move there car around when it is in the garage while it is being worked on or in storage????

Harbor Freight has these on sale.

Being our Opel only weighs around 2000 pounds I don't feel I need any of the heavy duty/more expensive dollies.

I agree. You'll be glad you bought em.
Thanks for the info. I have wondered if they worked OK or not.

My workshop is about the size of a two car garage so it's not like I don't have the room for our "mini-Gasser" - BUT - being able move the Opel around "just a little bit" this way or that way will be nice. I have to go past Harbor Freight today so I'll be picking them up. Hopefully they will be built OK. Most Harbor Freight stuff like this is usually OK and of course the "savings" & "free mini-flashlight" is hard to resist ! ;)

John, I've found the made in China bearings don't last long on top of the casters.

Thanks Mike.....I'll keep an eye on them.... hopefully the "light weight Opel" will be better on them that heavier cars.

But then, only paying $40/pair for them was a real bargain. Plus they are the "heavier models" (gray diamond plate rated @ 1500 lbs)) that is offered by Harbor Freight... the "black model" is only rated @ 1000lbs.

Almost ready to finish the "workshop doors"..... Opel should be in there by the end of the week!!! :)
