1981 300D with a funny tranny
Today I was trying to jack up my car and I realized that I have no idea. Maybe the ramps are going to be useful.
I made a set of ramps very similar to those. They stack with the tops facing each other so they actually don't take up that much space. I actually made two sets of those with the lengths different - the objective being to be able to drive a car onto ramps under all 4 wheels. I made these when I needed to adjust something with the transmission linkage on my 250 SL - the manual was quite clear that the car had to be level, on the ground under weight, and you had to be under the car. So that was the solution I came up with.I think these homemade ramps would seem pretty safe.
