You mean I shouldn't have used Onduline? :-)

They are Anderson shelter sheets from WW2, I used them under the Bronze many years ago. Unfortunately the Gold hasn't got as much ramp breakover clearance. DAMHIK.

Superb!!! I bet it's dead easy doing the gearbox seals with it that high.

I remember we had an Anderson shelter as a garden shed when I was a child. Never thought of recycling it as car ramps,but then we didn't have a car...

I grew up on a farm. I don't remember how much of the stuff we had, but it got used for cereal storage initially, and my dad built a grain drier using it inside what had been a stone built cattle byre.

It was his idea to use it as car ramps, although I don't think we used it for anything other than the Midas. The ramp in the picture uses 3 sheets each side, although I should have used the two remaining sheets I have as well, to get the front of the car a few inches higher. As it is, the front wheels are on the slope of the first sheets. However, it's my laziness which prevents this; there's a tree right behind the ramp, and I'd have to unbolt the sheets and move them all forward about three feet individually, then redrill the bolt holes, since the ground is uneven...

...I'll work with it as it is, unless (or until) frustration gets the better of me. :D
