Hey North Carolina members....anyone have a topside creeper?

Hoping to find a NC member who has a topside creeper near me who would be willing to rent it. I need one for my turbo rebuild and don't have the room to store one long term.
Thanks

I've never used one, it just looked like it would make working on the back of the engine easier. I thought about buying one but my shop is so full now, I don't have anywhere to store it.

Hmmmmmm. Thanks for the info, I'm glad I didn't order one now. How do you guys work on the turbo area, just kneel in the engine compartment?

Top side

Well, I dont have one but I can give you my opinion. I dont like them. My last dealer spent $550 on one and we used it for our radio stand. Reason being your feet end up being higher then your head and you cant get close enough to the rear of the motor to do any good. Its a lot easier just to lay across the grill and radiator. It doesnt take but a little bit to pull the turbo anyway even if its your first time. Like I said its my opinion but there not that good.
