Alright guys, I need suggestions...

I'm trying to "simply" attach a belly pan under my car, and am looking for thoughts on elevating the car enough to get under there.

Since the pan I'm missing the one in the middle of the car, all I need really is a way to get a 10" clearance to slide under there. The engine oil pan rests lower, but I won't be anywhere near there...a few thoughts I had, aside from a lift or jackstands (which I don't really want to mess around with are):

1) driving the back wheels up on three 1" boards? Still not sure that will give me enough clearance though...

2) Pulling the car up onto a curb at an angle, and then squeezing under

Not sure either of these will work...Such an easy (yet important) job being impeded only by the difficulty of finding a way to access under there.

Even considering just jacking up one side, attaching the pan there, then lowering and jacking up the other side to do the same. I would need to crawl completely under the car to attach the middle however, and I'm not sure how safe that is...

Go get a set of jackstands before you think about crawling under the car with it on a jack. Another option is to back the rear wheels onto a set of RhinoRamps, or similar ramp product. Don't try driving forward onto the ramps unless you've built some of your own as the approach angle is too steep for our cars, or at least for mine (U.S. M030).
