Those lifts are cheap and they work pretty well but they can be a tippy canoe, so keep that in mine.

Lookin good jimbo. I got a couple of those lifts. One has outriggers on the side that fold in for extra stability, pretty cool and I got that one for free. I use it all the time.

Got my wheels laced up today - took a few wrong turns but got there in the end. Found a great vid on YouTube (thank Christ for YouTube) and got her done.

Now to true them. Called the local garage who quoted me up to $375 for the job - well that ain't gonna happen. How else can I go about it?

I bought a truing stand on Amazon for $40.  You can get a dial indicator with a magnetic base on Amazon or eBay for $20.  Together with a wrench, you can do them yourself.  It's harder to put them together than to true them.

Thanks man, I'll look into it.  What exactly is the dial indicator with magnetic base?

the dial indicator has a little pointer on it that you put against the edge of the rim and as you spin the rim on the build stand it will indicate on the gauge  how much run out (or sideways warp) there is, you then adjust the spokes until the runout is trued out. the base of the indicator is magnetic so that it holds in place rather than having the uneven-ness of the rim pushing the whole apparatus away (if that makes sense, not sure I explained that bit very clearly)
also if you put the pointer on the outer edge of the rim it will indicate ovalness that can be adjusted out in the same way

Gonna need to look into this whole procedure a lot more...

Would this thing to the job? I'm thinking to use axel stands to hold the thing up -

And would I be able to use the magnetic dial indicator thingy with it?
