A fairly simply way to do this would be to construct it out of aluminum flashing. You will need a pair of tin ships and a tin crimping tool. With a little trial and error you should be on your way. Here is a picture to assist you. need to build a ramp for hot wheels car - 875ee04.jpg

Driving cars up ramps on slippery surfaces

I cant take credit for this one, but I do have an improvement. do your ramps "skate" accross the smooth garage floor as you try to drive up them? Same thing in gravel? An old tie down or seat belt strapped to the top of the ramps and placed under both wheels on the same side of the ramp will stop it from sliding away. For better results, my improvement is to fasten the strap around the drive wheel so it is essentially a pully making sure the ramp goes under the wheel.
*****disclaimer Note that ramps are really dangerous, make sure there are other people around, underneeth, infront, behind, or anywhere else. be careful, its easy to launch off ramps or put them all the way underneeth the car.

Safety concerns with car ramps.

Alot of people feel just a little bit uneasy when it come to getting under a car when on car ramps. A little trick is to drive the car on the ramps, put blocks, or wheel chucks behind the grounded tires. Then using a jack, jack one of the ramped tires up enough to remove its ramp. Reverse that ramp and then lower the vehicle down. It can't roll down the ramps because it is wheel locked inplace. Please though reverse that prcedure to drive it off the ramps.

Please note, I selected Chevy as the manufacturer only because 'any' is not an option

Bought a new ewheel e36 discovered today there is no way to load it with lift. Looks as if in design they failed to remember that a lot of us with disabilty drive trucks and need a way to load our mob

The majority of lifts they have for scooters involve a flat ramp that mounts off the back of your truck. There are crane types but you said it doesn't have lift points; I imagine you could build some type of sling that you can put around it to lift it. Use a material like heavy seatbelt webbing.
Here are a few of the places that have the ramp style: Bruno Scooter Lifts Mobility Products United Access Harmar AL 050 Micro Power Chair Lift Lift Go

Can i replace a rack and pinion on a 1999 grand prix on car ramps

Not likely. You need to be able to remove the wheels to separate the tie rod ends from the steering knuckle. That would be extremely difficult to do with the wheels on and the car on ramps. Also, the rack most likely will be coming out through one of the wheel wells.

How small does your hot wheels car have to be to go on the hot wheels meg loop mayhem

I always bought the hot wheels cars that had race indicated along the side. Some of your regular hot wheels cars may still work but look for the ones that say race.

I have lost me key to my mercedes s320 Y reg and need it towed can this be done while the car is in park mode ?

It can be towed as long as they lift it on the drive wheels. It cannot be towed on a ramp truck unless they remove the drive shaft first. Dragging your car even a few inches runs the risk of breaking the park mechanism and repair will require removal and complete disassembly of your transmission. Hire an old style tow truck that can lift your car to tow it and you should be okay.
If the car is situated in such a way as to prevent them from hooking up to the drive wheels then tell them when you call that you need a truck with "dolly wheels". These are wheeled ramps that your locked drive wheels can be placed on and the car moved. It may cost a little extra but not as much as fixing your transmission. Be there when they come to get it and make sure they do it right. Hope this helps.

Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon

1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.
