Jacking onto axle stands

Postby Rubyoptics » Wed May 09, 2018 11:48 am

Just a quick one. I saw the illustration on here for jacking the car onto axle stands. The illustration says to use a crossmember on the sill and to locate it as close as possible to the jacking point.

(repair-206/206/info/gb/e2ak0vk3.htm)

Sorry for the stupid question but can i use a piece of timber with a groove cut into it to accept the lower sill for this 'crossmember'?

Thought so, but wanted to double check before doing something terrible!

Sorry for being a pain in the arse Col, but any chance you could give me a picture showing where you are taking about?
