over the weekend I used my new low profile floor jack )it needed to be long for the front) and jackpoint jack stands. I only needed the front up so I jacked it up in place and added the jackpoint stand. solid.
I was removing my A-Panels, front bumper, and clamshell and this worked nicely.

This is exactly what I did. Worked like a charm.

1. Bought the $47 Harbor Freight bar with (2) lift points that was mentioned a few posts up. I set the points exactly where Sector111 video for the NiftyLifty shows the jack stands at... Where the rear A arms attach to the chassis at the rear most connection point. There is like a triangle gap where no underbody panels cover the chassis at these (2) points. Set both rubber lift pads on this exposed triangle piece of the chassis.
2. Used my lift to lift the car using the above (2) points. Worked perfectly.
3. With car lifted up now with a single Harbor Freight 4 ton jack and the Harbor Freight spreader lift bar, I then placed (2) jack stands under the rear designated lift points.
4. To get it back, reverse process.

Also, can somebody take a pic of exactly where the Nifty Lifty picks up the rear?

|DamianLynch||Apologies for not replying sooner. I jack each side of the car and put a jack stand under the front lift point and place a race ramp under the back tire. I use the niftylifty to lift both back wheels up and then place two jack stands under the rear lift points; then lowering the hydraulic jack and niftylifty. When done I have four jack stands supporting the car on the four lift points.|

If you're using the Esco Jack's, this is a nice addition: Pivot-Topô Posts. It's certainly not a necessity but then again, nearly nothing in our garage is.

Here is a similar devise from Harbor Freight. I have not tried it but I believe Sherman from Hethelsport recommended it?s use on the Evora. I am going to try it out soon.

Just wish they would carry more for the Evoras.

Thanks for the responses.
I like the niftyLIFTY as it enables the back of the car to be lifted with one jack while enabling jack stands to be used at the appropriate jacking points. From the Sector111 web site and the response from @lobuzz311 the standard ESCO jack stands will work fine (and potentially get the car up higher).
I was thinking the jacking sequence getting the complete car off all 4 wheels would be:
1. Using one of the rear jacking points and a low profile jack raise the car. Place a jack stand under the front jacking point and a Race/Rhino ramp under the rear wheel. Remove the jack
2. Do the same on the other side
3. Use the niftyLIFTY to jack the car up at the rear and place the two other jack stands on the niftyLIFTY at the jacking points.

Check with Shinoo (can't ever remember the name of his new company) I bought a nifty lifty that you use on the underside and lift the car from the back then you can set it on jack stands with the lifting bar or put the jacks stands at the jacking points. Made my life much easier. Here is the same one on the sector 111 site
|08-15-2017 09:14 AM|
Kind of a pain, but better than punching holes through the underside by lifting from places you shouldn't.

|lobuzz311||I have a set of 4 of the standard ones for my Elise, and they are amazing. Your car is as stable sitting on those as it is on the ground. I've gotten the car about 18" off the ground, and I still had room to go higher. It would require some creative lifting to do so, though.|

ESCO Jack Stands
Just got my Evora and I am figuring out how best to get the car on jack stands. I have a question: if I were to get ESCO jack stands would I get the standard 10498 or the low profile 10499 ones.
