Default Awesome new ramp!

Well it's finally done! I have been workin on this with my dad for about a week and man have we made this thing bulletproof! It's also suprisingly light weight! Check it out. Oh and by th way, the top is actually stainless steel.

p.s. Dont mind the yellow flowers all over the yard! little SOB's are CONSTANTLY falling into the pool & fountain and in the grass! and guess who's job it is to get them out!

Thanks bro! The edging is just some stuff i found lying around my dad's scrap yard, and we used a bending tool to get the arch so it'd flow with the curve of the ramp. I figured it'd add some durabillity.

jump that truck across a pool?? do you realize how much money is invested in that just by looking at it? it would be heart breaking to see it hit the water if it didnt work![X(]

im not too worried about it, its not my truck. i didnt say it was a good idea, i just said i wanted to see it. isnt it possible that even if it hit the water, no long term damage could be done? im shure if you took everything apart and let it all dry out good, there might be a chance for it.

wow, I'm sorry for your RC18MT, but i think that it is hilarious that you have already lost one truck to that pool. I'm just curious, but what kind of damage did you do to it, I'm guessing you flooded the engine with water, but was it salvageable?
