    Does anyone know where i could have the use ( supervised if need be ) of a garage ramp... to get the car in the air, i need to take the wheels off to re-paint my calipers but dont fancy having to use a trolley jack to do all four corners ( too time consuming )... if i have to then i will but just thought if i asked, someone may be able to help...

    there is beers in it ...

    thanks
