    There are 4 visible pinch welds if u get down and check it out or if u can reach the rear end. I used the front 2 pinch welds and used a small would block on my jack to jack up on the rear end. I then placed 2 jack stands on the rear pinch welds and the other 2 in the front on I believe it's some sort of cross member. Sorry kinda a shitty pic. My car is back on the ground now or I'd get u a better one. There's also 2 black round pucks just behind the rear pinch welds that I believe are a jack point and then jack stand on the pinch weld. Not 100% positive on that but I'm sure someone will come in and concur. Good luck

    I'm looking for the same advice as well.

    When the car arrives (sometime in late Jan.) I plan to remove all four tires (PZero AS Nero's) which I will have checked for balance and load run out, then I will install the 2 that have the best values in the front ----- the backs will be swapped out for MT 275-40-20 Street Comps. Additionally while the car is up on jack stands I plan to swap out the brake pads with Z23 Ceramics and apply some CQuarts Finest on the wheels for protection.
    Having said all that; I too am not really sure how to go about the best process to getting the cat on 4 jack stands?
    I was planning on getting a couple of the premium jack pads w/mag pucks from ZL-1 which I assume can be used at any of the 4 outboard pinch weld slots?
    I thought I could use the black "round pucks" in the back for the rear jack stands but have no idea where to put the front jack stands other than keep the front of the car on the ZL-1 jack pads with 2 floor jacks?
    Thank you!

    I purchased Jackpoint jackstands and I'm very happy with them. There are holes in the frame to position them. They are a little heavy if you try to carry more than 2 at a time but I don't mind that. They store in a very small space too. I think they were $600.00 for 4 of them. You do need a low profile floor jack. The one in the photo is perfect. If the lifting pad was any taller, it wouldn't work. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious here but you lift the car up with the pad and then swing the stand under the car around the jack and then carefully set the pad on to the stand.

    Here's another photo showing the front jack stand in place. I don't have a photo of the rear jack stand position but it's obvious if you look underneath by the rear wheel. The pad pin is in a hole in the frame.

    "Jack Point Jack Stands" --------- what a great looking concept !

    Are the adapters located on all the 4 pinch weld openings in the pictures?

    Also is the car up off the floor sufficiently to work under ? ------ like for swapping out the drive shaft ? ;)

    Thank you !

    They are not located on the pinch welds but that's a good thing because the pinch welds don't get damaged. I have enough room to crawl all the way under the car without a creeper. That's why it's on a carpet so I'm not directly on the floor. I would not attempt to change a driveshaft with these although it probably could be done.

    Nope. I'm boarding a plane right now. I'll check this thread when I land.

    I originally tried to position them on the pinch welds but they didn't fit there and they will damage the plastic trim piece that is next to the pinch welds.

    Yes, they are all the same. You will see the locations when you look under the car.
