Best place to block/ stand Breadvan shell

Recommended Posts

JakWadd

Hi,

I'm just wondering on the best places to place axle stands/ block up underneath my bread van shell to I can strip both the front and rear beam/ struts etc.

This is so I can start referbing them and also do some welding and rust treatment prior to respray.

Pictures would be best as i don't want to axle stand it in the wrong places/ I want it stood so I can get the most work done without moving them.

Cheers

On the jacking points?

Be careful using the rear points, they are very slim.

I like to jack up on the front TCA to body mounts, or on the ARB mount, using a rubber block/ piece of wood. On the back I like to jack the car on the rear beam mount. (If the car is too low drive then I drive onto a brick) in my opinion, the jacking points on the sills are best avoided as I don't like the idea of folding one and damaging it.

I've managed to block it up on some 4 3m x 100mm x 80mm fence posts front and rear which has spread the load acros the underbody and is nice and stable.

Shame my front right strut is seized on haha
