Hi Aeroscreens 

Yes the jack I bought second hand was from you with the block of wood and "new"carpet fitted.Works brilliantly no more pushing the car onto planks of wood etc.

definitely worth its weight in gold.

Thanks Dave

Thanks everyone, seems there are a couple of ways to approach it, I hope you don't mind me saying all are a bit of hack.  I might see how the hockey puck idea goes, as I've got loads of them from my Exige days.  If not wood for the garage at least.

I do also have a small bottle jack I bought for the build but actually never used it.  I'm not a fan of them but it might be enough to jack the car up for a rear tyre swap on a trackday.  I'm not sure it will have the height to get the car on stands though.

@gulf, Sounds interesting, how large is it?  Is the sort that uses a compressor?

Thanks

my 'low-entry' jack doesnt fit under the exhaust, but the 1.5 ton factory scissor jack does slip on its side under the rear exhaust.  I lift the rear of the car by the A-frame mount.  a couple of turns is enough to raise it to change wheels, brake work, suspension settings.  anything requireing me under the car, I jack it high enough to put jackstands under the chassis.

Hi Mark

See the post above#15 that's the type I have works perfectly ,have got a carpeted block on the lifting plate so it clears my front numberplate and also gives a couple of extra inches lift,for trackdays it's so quick to lift the car for wheel changes.
