cheers for that rhys but if you can look you will be able to see that the jacking point is a bit further down, so the jacking point is fine.

and yes its only on 1 side would like it both sides tbh lol.

yes if you really want to fuck the shell up.

have you ever seen the damage done from lifting a saxo not on the jacking points which are specially strengthened for the purpose.

the jacking points are the only areas you should be lifting the car from for that job, other jobs may require different places on the shell but then you should still only be using strenghtened parts of the shell.
