Decided this afternoon to put the Elise on axle stands as she's SORN'd till April and don't want the tyres to flat spot, plus I want to do some work over winter.
Jack up, axle stands in correct place at the front, then jack up the rear and put axle stands at the cross member section. Removed the front wheels (nuts already loosened) and the front of the car lifted.
So much lift that the car is 4" off the front axle stands, the rear wheels are not touching the ground.... the car is balanced like a seesaw. Very slight pressure pushes the front back to the axle stands.
Front wheels are now back on and resting on the stands.
Tomorrow night i'll try to get the axle stands at the rear further back.
Quite funny to see
