I started to do that but then realized I was only doing the front of the car and that defeated the purpose of the jackpoint stands. So I found by lifting with my new long nose low profile jack that at the front lift spot the car went up quick and I wrapped the jack with the jackpoint stand and I was done. Easy peesie.

Lifting at the aft required the car to be considerable higher to fit the jackpoint stand (or any other) under the front of the car.

I like the front on the jackpoint stands as they are very sturdy. The car doesn't move. I was afraid to use my other jack stands, especially lifting one side at a time.

Well, I feel better about taking off the bumper, clamshell, and A-Panels. Once my pieces are painted, I'll painfully re-assemble. I also had the windshield wiper motor replaced. Checked the radiator. resurfacing the headlamps, and changing the HID bulbs.
My next project is I bought a new Pioneer head unit AVIC-W8500NEX to replace the dated unit.
