Metro Van Wheelchair Ramp Fabrication. Progressing along with fabricating a hinged mount for a wheelchair ramp into the back opening of a 1960's Metro Mite Van. The next steps will be to cut down the side verticals and reinforce them and add a bracket for the Shook to connect to the assist springs. The assist springs will counterbalance the ramp to where the electric actuator will have less stress applied to it. Instead of the actuator lifting let's say 200 pounds, with the assist springs, the actuator may only need to apply 50 pounds of force.
