An update on the jack stands. I communicated with owner of Jackpoint about good fitment to the Evora and sent a picture showing the standard height pads (caps) with the rubber pads glued on as I did. He suggested a slight modification to my set up of using a hockey puck drilled (5/8" dia. hole 1/2" deep) to accept the provided aluminum pin; thus securing pad from any potential of sliding off while still providing an elastic base like my rubber pad. Guess he is concerned about potential of the rubber pad sliding off, although it is both glue to jack stand pad and gripped by cars serrated jacking plate. He said they are using the low profile pad (shorter version of the standard, not the flat pancake style also offered) this way on the McLaren 12C, and I may need to use the low profile it fit under the car. From observation I don't think my jack would raised enough to clear the taller stand and thus this mod would require the lower profile .. FYI, standard capped stands are about 13-1/4 tall to top of rubber pad.
