Hi
Does anyone have any decent 2nd hand jacking points for a 96.?

Will be fitting a new sill and would like to prepare it in advance with jacking points on, prior to fitting the new sill.

I know Malbrad has them, but at£45 each, plus postage, that's more than a £100.....

Andy

MORNING ANDY,

AS A SUGGESTION,YOU CAN SOURCE THE JACKING POINTS FROM A 'SCRAP' 99/C900. THAT'S WHAT I DID...
SIMPLY TAKE THE ANGLE GRINDER,AND CUT OUT THE SILL SECTION WITH JACKING POINT STILL ATTACHED.

HOWEVER,THE AMOUNT OF TIME,TO SEPERATE,THE JACKING POINTS,FROM THE SILL SECTION,BY BUZZING OUT THE SPOT WELDS,OR GRINDING OFF RUSTY METAL,THEN TRYING TO CLEAN UP THE JACKING POINTS,WHICH ARE INVARIABLY SQUASHED,THROUGH YEARS OF MISUSE....


''A FOOL CAN DO FOR TEN SHILLINGS,THAT WHICH AN ENGINEER,CAN FOR FIVE''

P.S BET, I AM TIGHTER THAN YOU :lol:

Ah, the man of CAPITALS. I dropped some wheels of for you once I think. Met your mum!

I could in fact cut off the old ones from my current sill, that's going to be replaced, if need be.
It would just make life easier, (and boy I like an easy life), if I could find a couple of decent 2nd hand ones.
I draw the line at £100 for a pair of new ones.!

I'm not from Yorkshire or Aberdeen, so don't consider myself to be particularly tight with money!!!! Ha Ha Ha :D

900 jacking points are slightly different, but will work. You can also buy a two stroke jack and have your welder chap knock up a pair of simple brackets for it:
