A common problem with El Caminos (especially 1973-1977) is that the bed is sloped slightly towards the front. This means that rain water collects at the front of the bed, and tends to cause water leaks inside the car's interior. One solution is to always park on a slope (like a driveway) or on car ramps, but this isn't always possible or convenient.
This instructable will show you how to create a pair of low-profile ramps that can be kept in the bed of your El Camino or pickup truck. These ramps don’t take up much room, and can be used whenever and wherever you need.
