In reality what many of us do everyday without realizing it.

Basically what we do to assess risks, so in relation to the ramps one could apply the following.

IAMIS, easy to remember say "I am is"

Identify hazard: Using car ramps to lift car off ground.

Assess hazard : Improper use could cause car to fall off ramps and cause serious personnel injury of property damage.

Make a Plan: Have safety observer verbally guide driver to ensure all that all
wheels are square on ramps and do not go over end of ramp.

Implement Plan: Have safety observer guiding you.

Supervise: Make sure observer remains until process is complete, you don't
them running inside for a beer while you are driving up the ramp.

With your outstanding perseverance I am sure I am going to get back to this forum in 2 years and I will find DIY by you to completely dissamble and rebuild the E39 from the ground up!

Keep on rocking and please be safe
