Unibody jack stand placement

I built some stands to take the weight off of the rottiserie that i built. I attached some pitcures and basicle they will support the brackets coming off of the bumper mounts. Will this be an issue?

Re: Unibody jack stand placement

NO Phucing clue what you are working with (other than any Fairlane ever built) but I will tell you this...

1: Place Front support at area of contact with lower control arm.

2: Place Rear support stands at FORWARD position of rear Leaf Spring. (this may preclude that there is 4 feet of car to the rear of rear stands but that's normally OK)

The way you are going about suspending the car is correct. Just reinforce if you do any structural repairs/mods on the body while it is still suspended.

Sorry. It is a 69 Fairlane Fastback 500.

Are you talking about door bracing?

Yeah he was talking about door-cross bracing if doing structural repairs. (ie: whole floor pans etc)...

Don't see it being a issue other than the body will no longer spin on rotisserie.

Just curious to why you are building the stands?

My car has been on a rotisserie for over a year with no additional support and no problems. Though I did additional bracing when I cut out the uni-body rails and floors.

Are these just extra insurance when car is sitting/not being worked on?

My plan is when I'm not working on the body I can use the rotisserie as axle stand and also insurance when working on it.

Why did you have to cut the unibody rails?

Thanks for the link. Awesome work by Lou. That's exactly what my plan is except for tubbing.
