    I got an overflow pan for a water heater from HD. It’s got low sides, and fits under perfect. Plenty of room to take plugs out, and no way oil will make a mess by missing it.

    Ramps built from some old scrap wood for the front tires. Easy to just drive the front end up on these ramps. They will raise the front end up an additional 7 inches off the floor.



    1500 pound scissor jack to go under the swing arm. Takes about 2 minutes to slip it under and run the scissor up even with the front end on the ramps.

    Also have wedge tire chocks. Once I get the rear tire up high enough, I slip a cement block under the tire and let the weight down on the block. This will raise the Spyder up high enough to slide a full size truck oil drain pan with 6 inch high side under the Spyder with room to spare.

    I have occasionally had spills or splashed oil out on the floor. I keep a 5 gallon bucket of oil dry next to the tool box.
