    OK, been busy with life lately, things not too good, then finally i get back to normal.

    my astra run around i purchased 2 months ago, was feeling a bit tired after doing 6000 miles since i got it. so i needed to replace the front lower arms and ball joints, tie rod ends etc etc,.

    well being a vauxhall, nothing came undone ok, so took me nearly 2 days to do.

    this morning go to a mates garage to do the tracking and tighten a bolt i couldn't get in and do up well enough.

    job finished, bring the car down on the ramp and suddenly....nothing!

    lost 1 phase of the 3 phase power supply into the garage, ramp not working, my car stuck on it. it is now there until power returns, hopefully tomorrow morning. there is no manual release on the ramp. doh

    anyone else had this happen to them, or shall i class myself as jinxed?

    :wtf:
