SCISSOR LIFT FOR <£1K 2,268kg

Both of course would require bolting down to a decent thickness of concrete, most typical prefab type garage's floor slabs wouldn't be suitable to take the bolts required I'd say unless you know the specification and thickness of the concrete used But if one has a low ceiling it would not be diffic...

Vented Brake Discs & Stub Axle Bearings

Agree with Philip. Also, the standard hubs (with/without QRG vented kit) also used castellated nuts and split pin. Effect of a split pin in a nut done up to about 200 ft.lb or more :? :? :? .

Off side SS1 door morror

Not pry it off, but just enough to get a screwdriver behind it to remove the fixing screws of the baseplate. Use a thin screwdriver!

Fuel hoses again!
