- My model of MX-5 is: NBFL
- I’m based near: Coventry
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: whether it’s a good idea to put axle stands on the frame rail ends to support the car in the air.
I currently have the car supported on the normal pinch weld locations. However I’m going to need to do some major rust repair, and will have to cut out the sills where the axle stands currently hold the car. With this in mind, I’ll have to move the stands elsewhere to support it. Am I right in saying that the ends of the frame rails are double skinned and can thus support more weight? If so, will I be alright to place the axle stands there?
