Lifting onto Axle Stands
- Retrieve the jack from the tool kit, or find a suitable alternative
- Raise the jack into the recess in the sill just below the sideblade
- Jack high enough to place axle stands front and rear and repeat on the other side
Axle Stand Placement
It seems that the car should not rest on it's axles... there are approved jacking points for resting on an ice hockey puck style stand... I didn't have any of these. I cut some circles from MDF and glued them onto a shaft that went down the center of the stand tube (to ensure the car didn't slide off).

Placement of the rear stand (passenger side on a RHD) inside the circle visible under the car...
