Hey @moonstone.

Sorry for this silly question, but I’m not that mechanically minded!
I wanted to ask you which bit under the sill you placed your axle stands at please?
From one of your pics, it looks like right on the edge of the sill.
I have Carbon side skirts, so unsure if I could put the stand there or not?

I’m needing to stick my two stands under the front also to fit a new splitter & corners.

And advice is greatly welcomed mate.
Cheers!

Must just be the photo because you would never put a Jack or axle stand on your sill on ANY car or else this happens:


I put my axle stands as close as possible to the jacking point and in-line with it I know it’s on the chassis rather than the bodywork.

Thanks a lot mate.

I’m very weary of doing it, as I’ve never done it before. Only ever jacked the car up from one side.
But I’d like to have both sides up this time, to make it easier for fitting the splitter!

I know what you mean. To be honest. there's plenty of clearance if you just drive onto a couple of ramps, home made or otherwise. So if you're not keen on jacking it up etc, just drive onto a some planks or get yourself a couple of these:

Sounds like a plan @moonstone!

My motor’s been a bit neglected seeing as I’ve been playing with the wives so I gave it a wash and made sure the roof still works. Some really weird marks on the paint that are quite rough. Dunno if it’s road salt. Polished some of them but will need to give it a proper going over. Anyway think the driveways looking pretty decent.
