Looks like a good bit of kit; though a shame a way cannot be found to beef it up to rock / log / jack strength. I can see that the sill bolt holes are out due to the various things that may or may not already be bolted there, but could some sort of long/wide "load spreader bar" be attached to the guard that will spread the load of an impact under the floor pan or something? I haven't had a look under there for a long while so cannot quite visualise what might work.

One thing that would add extra wazoo (is that a real word? :whistle: ) to it though - In bright luminous paint on each face "NO JACK POINT!"

Will make a garage think twice before using it...

Hence why we do not want to issue something we are not 100% with yet :thumbright:

But think of the advantages of using a Beta Tester instead of testing it yourself Neil....

If it breaks and :censored: s the compressor up.....

...at least it'll be John's compressor and not yours :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
