I recently spent a load of time making this.

It's asymmetrical, in that one way round fits either the front, or back of the car.

Cut outs are for the bodykit side skirts, and the off-centre central channel takes into account legacy sill-damage on my example.

I made a much simpler one recently for the FIAT, and have yet to rout out the rear to accept the trolley-jack foot better.

Then I'll varnish it up.

Nice idea - I'd thought of doing something similar for the GTV/Spider, which has a similar vertical seam for its jacking points.

The supplied scissor jack has a v-shaped section to fit around the seam - but is useless. The seam is therefore almost always crushed flat by jacking it up using a trolley jack.

I had in mind a section of wood with a slot cut into it as an alternative - but yours is much more sophisticated!

Thanks Dr G!

I felt confident a GT-owner would be able to see the point!

yeah; I try to save the supplied jack now; they're not particularly quick; or exude a sort of 'unbreakable' confidence about them! They're an emergency thing really...
