Progress.....

So, I've decided to us "C" clamps to attach the ramp pieces together, and it works great.

I could use more than the two clamps shown, but it would be overkill:

And the top transition piece:

With just 3 clamps holding these three parts together, it's bombproof:

Ready for masonite:

Only tools required for assembly are the "C" clamps.

Now for the pull bars.....

(And paint eventually...)

Done...

Yes the pull-bars are currently one piece, so I need the roof rack...

I have a plan to make them "modular" with the ability to break down to three foot sections and re-assemble. Maybe I'll get to it when I recover from the build of the ramp.

Testing it out on the hill in the morning....

Some close-ups on the system to attach all modules and bars together. Most pieces are custom made.

Here's my finished version. All "modular".

From this:

To this:

In less than 10 minutes. Only "tools" necessary are the "C" clamps mentioned earlier in the thread, the eye-bolts that attach the pull bar assembly to the ramp, a couple of wing-bolts to hold the pull-bars together, and fingers to tighten everything up. Yes they do make the wing-bolts that I was joking aboot earlier in the thread. The only ones I could find were short though.

The "extension legs" or whatever you want to call them actually work great. It will be interesting to see if they hold up in the current configuration. Adding 45 degree braces is an option if they don't.

My GS board is currently set up with a 23" wheelbase, and there are no issues with bottoming out on the transition:

Plenty of room as you can see...

Just a funny little note about my ramp:

Took it to a slalom session a while back, and one of our new recruits started call in the ramp the "Autobot ramp".

Time to start shopping for something new to brand the ramp with:

willy, the guys that designed and built them could help you out with the tech details, but you'll need to speak spanish (they don't speak english). If you PM me I can put you in contact with them. Rgds
