  • Jack Placement for lifting my 7

    Hello:


    My new tires, Toyo R888 185-60-13, are in. Question: Where do I place the auto floor jack to raise the car in the rear first, then the front? I do not want damage the AL finish.

    My 1995 model has unpainted body. Wings & Nose are BRG.

    Wings & nose are off, being repainted and the fiberglass cracks correected.

    Once I have raised the car where is the best place to put the Jack Stands in the front and rear of the car.

    I will bring the wheels to have the new tires put on the spoke wheels & spin balance with the sticky weights.

    I have a solid axle with the four speed. 1700 Kent engine.

    I have now started to polish the body with a twin head Cyclo Orbital Polisher with the Oxidation Scotch Brite Pads for Metal then the Green Pads using the four part polishing system. A slow process. I am told to do it right it takes 20-30 hours.


    I have my fuse system worked out. All electrical is now functional.

    Thanks for your help.

    Page 20 shows where to place the jackstands.

    Jack the front of the car up from the X in the middle. I use the DeDion center at the rear.
