How about dipping them in rubber (like tool handle rubber dip) to help marring the painted surface. I'd be willing to pay extra for the coating.
Thanks!
Thanks Ted, good to know. I will look into the coating costs. My manufacturer said it could be done.

Either you would need 2 sets, or, if you were aiming to get the car secured on jack-stands, you could use the method some have described to get the car up in steps.

Or is there a nub on both sides of the rectangular block and a hole in the circular part so the rectangle can be flipped to 'hand' the puck?

Just call me confused...
I would love to get a DB9. Unfortunately I need more of you guys to buy exhausts until I can afford it

All joking aside - I don't have easy access to one right at the moment, but I did speak to my good buddy who has been an Aston Tech for over 10 years and he told me he's pretty sure they are the same.

Regarding the actual construction of the part, you know I actually don't know whether it is 3 separate pieces (a dowel, the puck and the shape) or if they planned to make it with a nub on each side and a hole/recess in the puck.) I took the foam core pieces I shaped to the machine shop, discussed my objectives and told them it would be ideal if they were reversible so you didn't need 4 per vehicle to do all 4 cutouts. Since Harv knows way more about machining stuff than I do, I left it with him to determine the best engineering solution

But based on the response I have greenlit (greenlighted?) this project and will test them on a DB9 for you and show pics/video of them in action.

I hate to hijack this thread, but my Vantage is on EBAY right now as well as my BMW 135 Convertible. I have too many vehicles (2 cars, 1 pickup truck, 3 motorcycles) and its time to thin the fleet since I'm not Jay Leno . Virginia Personal Property taxes + Insurance are just ridiculous on all of that, so its a downsizing move. I have fair prices on both cars (and 1 motorcycle will be going) so if they sell - they sell and if they don't I'll just keep 'em rather than doing a fire-sale on them.

I'd love a full set for my Snapon midrise lift. Would prefer to know the fit for my DB9 had been tested though. Then...I vote to have a set recommended to every one on this forum. Thanks Stuart!

I would be happy to be your DB9 guinea pig... I would only need one pair...the goal to jack front or rear... or one side at a time...knowing how AM reuses so many elements between cars I'd bet dollars to donuts there is no difference between Vantage and DB9 jack points...it will be important to keep them low profile

Here's a photo of a BMW Jack Pad made by Reverse Logic. It billet aluminum with two rubber stoppers built in on each side to friction hold it to the car when you remove the jack. Very trick.
