Hi Mike, I havent made much progress on this yet. I did talk to Williams about jacking the Plus 6 front and back and they were fairly cagey in their reply, they accepted you could side jack it on the approved areas in an emergency to change a wheel or when rotating the wheel when you inject wheel sealant goo, but they did not go for using jacks fore and aft to lift the P6.. They did say that scissor jacking using the 4 approved lift points together would be fine.as this would be similar to the garage lift. I havent progressed further on a scissor lift system as our Plus 6 only came home for 6 days and then went back for work on the wiper system. When the P6 returns I need to check the height between the chassis ( platform) lift points and the floor. Although I can get around this as I have 4 low profile wheel ramps that you simply drive up and on. These give about an exta 50mm or so of height. They were developed for low sports cars to allow a jack to get underneath. My second consideration is that my garage work area has a slight slope, as it is a converted stable.. I think the max degree of slope is around 5 deg and ours is more than this, so I may have to come up with a packing system to make the scissor jack and car level.

Thanks Dave, I might progress the quick lift option and do some measuring up. Hope you get the car back soon.

Richard,
Quick thread drift: I have just ordered side pipes from Librands, to fit the existing silencers and now see your oval pipes. Were they a factory fit by any chance ?
