Icon1 How to get her up?

Hey everyone, i have a 4th gen Prelude. I work in my apartment complex parking lot and don't have anything to lift my car (not like hydraulic lift) but need something that gets my car up so that i can slide under. I know it sounds stupid but i have been looking around.

Thanks guys.

Ramps?

To be honest. Unless you have a lift or a few jacks + stands it is not safe to do so and nor do I or anyone recommend. I dont mean to be a jerk or anything but I have had way to many friends do so and been seriously injured and god bless them 2 have died.

Re: How to get her up?

W/E YOU USE BLOCK THE WHEELS UP i think this is more impotent then w/e you use to lift it and if you have one throw a rim under the car better safe then killed by a car. I would only trust ramps if i was doing an oil chance or something wear im not putting a lot of force onto the car, jacks and jack stands are ok but i like the ramps better, me i have 2 rail road ties about a foot long i use :) Going bigger is always better if you under the car.

What the ****?

That's an interesting idea.
Very dangerous looking though.
Also I doubt the hose part would fit over my AWESOME Apex'i N1

Re: How to get her up?

thats a cool jack, but i what i usually do is use the spare tire jack... like 4 of em to lift the car off the floor.

and use blocks just in case if something bad were to happen

Re: How to get her up?

get yourself a 1 or 2 good jacks.... i usually jack the car up then put a steel ramp right next to the jack so the car will hit the ramp if it falls. and if both sides are up i put a ramp on both sides.

and dont use the spare tire jacks they are the most rickety pieces of **** ever created.

Jack it up with two jacks, put cement blocks underneath and leave the jacks there too that way you got a back up in case the blocks fail...

Re: How to get her up?

Drive it up onto a curb. Use boards for ramps if you cant find a low enough curb. Thats how I used to do when I lived in an apt and had no money for ramps or stands lol.
