Curious where they are? I've got to get one on a lift to check out the undercarriage, but the bottom is all fiberglass. Anyone know where they are?

If you go with the body lift points, make it a good sized block of wood, say at least 6" x 6" that will extend under the vertical part of the body at the wheelwells.Chassic Europa right?
In the front under the suspension pick-up points on the chassis. Do not use the center of the boxed section of the chassis without using a piece of plywood to spread the load. You can also go right behind the front wheel on the rocker, by spreading the load with a wood block.
At the rear, just forward or behind of the wheel on the body, again with a wood block. Or, under the tranny where the lower suspension arms attach.
:tadts:i used the rear most part of the transmission, there was a piece of metal bolted to trans then dropped a half inch from the trans.
it lifted fine and held.
my question is, when i dropped it, the rear of the car stayed very high, and i noticed the rear wheels were tucked in to the car and suspension was stuck -open? and held the car high.
can i damage anything buy having done this? what can i do in future to avoid this? while still having access to the underside?
You're welcome. I just had one thought though since I don't know why you had the car raised. Did you change any suspension bushings when the car was jacked up? If so, the bolts that hold them on shouldn't be tightened until the car is off the jacks and has been rolled a bit so that it's at its normal ride height. If you don't, the bushings will fail prematurely.thank you
The Europa Central Knowledge Base is an unbelievable source of information, but I agree, sometimes the guys there describe things in a matter of fact way that is hard to follow.Thanks. I sure appreciate the Europa sites and all the effort and caring that others have done, but going in there and trying to learn something sure makes one appreciate this site. It's almost like using morse code to try and get information from those relatively primitive sites. Here, "it did not happen if there are no pictures" is a mantra.
Will you guys be at LOG?
