Best of luck with that! 40" just might be a skoolie.net record for a roof raise.

YEOZERS!!!!!! That's almost FOUR FEET!!!! Considering the shortest Thomas is ten feet and spare change, that lift would only work for an inverted Thomas where the roof "falls" instead of rising. If it's not over 13'6", it's darn close!
