quickjack 5000 lift of v8 vantage

purchased a quickjack 5000 with a rating of 2273 kg (tare wt aston is 1630kg) and lifted the vehicle up for the first time today. This in preparation for future work on it like oil changes etc. I enclose pics FYI. I purchased lift point blocks from Matt at HSM precision which fit perfectly in the lift point holes (thanks Matt). The custom blocks from HSM have grommets which allow them to remain attached to the vehicle when you lower it; thus no need to realign. The quickjack gives me good height and now that I have figured out the layout and geography of the underside in relation to the jack, things should go more smoothly
The jack with the custom blocks and support rubber blocks just barely fit on the underside, so I cut out 4 pieces of 3/8 plywoo x2 to give me a bit more height when maneuvering the jacks under the car.

custom rear lifting block (hole is circular) and there were grommets in the rear holes but not the front


custom front lifting block (hole is oblong)
