Has there ever been a need to get under your GT or was this something you were trying as DIY?

The skid plate I was referring to in the first post. The car will have to be raised to get the template done using a cardboard and then fixing the final skid plate. Not very familiar with any FNGs nearby so this seems to be an easy workaround.

Besides, if I can manage to source the fuel/oil/air filters and other spares, the replacements can be done at home instead of leaving the car at the service center for days together.

Good one gannu, now is the time to get a creeper.

Also try to make the platform broader to prevent toppling.

Nice work done there! Requesting the right to make a copy(just one, just for me) of this some day. Thanks for sharing those diagrams and pics of the ramp in the making.

Nice. Simple, yet effective concept and i wonder how come people (Including me, but ) haven't really thought about it! As people have pointed out, I think you should have more length on the top plank though.
