Since this tread is active, I used to have a 1959 Lotus Elite. For those not familiar, it is a fiberglass monocoque chassis Three fiberglass molds bonded together with no other supports. There were a couple of jack points where there was a reenforced area where the doors and windshield were mounted.
When I had to get it onto stands, I would drive the car onto a ramp. From there, I had a 2x6 board, with some carpet tacked on, that was cut to the length that ran width of the car. I using a standard floor jack, I lifted the car from the center with that board and placed jacks under the boards at the appropriate jack points.
So, this worked because the bottom of the Lotus Elite was flat. I haven't had the Evora up in the air yet, but I will eventually. Any reason this would not work or cause damage? Note the Elite was around 1500lbs total.
