So me and my buddy whipped these together last night. I wanted a set of ramps that i could use to do my regular oil changes, i wanted them to be modular for storage and ease of transportation. Also wanted them to have a low enough angle of slope so my lowered fusion would get up them. I also wanted something a bit higher than a normal set of ramps. The modular design also allows me to take the ramp section off and work from the side of the car. I will be using these ramps to get the rear of the car up for my Magnaflow install this weekend aswell.
I ended up with these. Total length is 96 inches end to end. (84" from center of wheel stand to end of ramp) Comes apart in a total of three pieces. The first section is the 2 foot long section of 7 stacked 2x10's coming in at 10.5" tall.
The second section is the bottom two ramp boards which are 6 and 5 feet long, the third section is 4 boards that are 4,3,2, and 1 foot long. The two ramp sections can be used independently or in conjunction with the wheel stacks, giving me plenty of options on how high i can go. The two ramp sections are held together from sliding with two barrel bolts on each ramp set.
The actual ramp section attaches to the wheel stand with a custom twist bolt that is permanently attached to the ramp and swings down and tightens on the the wheel stand. This ensures that the block doesnt slide when driving onto it. The wheel stand also has a wheel chock that is screwed and secured through the top.
Each section comes in at or around 50lbs, still need to add some handles to the sections to carry them. These were built inside an apartment in 2 nights, all boards purchased were utilized fully with only 2' extra. Cuts were made at home depot by one of the men who work there. All holes were pre-drilled and each board was liquid nailed together.
Total Supplies were:
Box of 2.5" deck screws-
Liquid nail -
3 16' 2x10"s- Cut to lengths at home depot for me :-)
2 12' 2x10"s Cut to lengths at home depot
4 barrel bolts
4 twist bolts
4 lag screws for the twist bolts
couple of washers to hold the chocks
onto the pictures
the first barrel bolt in this picture has since been moved to the correct place...up one level so the 2 pieces can actually seperate
as seen here... just didnt get an overall picture with it in the right spot... it was getting late when we put those on..haha
