Question Jacking the AU Series 3

Experts
My old man has a VCT Series 3 fitted with the full body kit. He got a flat tyre today. The book said jack the car from the sills, just in front of the rear tyre or just behind the front tyre. Dad has had a look and the factory side skirts cover the jacking points. Its IRS so using the Diff centre is out.

any suggestions?????????

thanks
Chrispy

Tell your dad to look carefully and he'll see that the side skirts do not cover the jacking points. While the side skirts do wrap around and make less visible that without skirts he should see two notch's place the jack between these notch's and yer set. I've got the Tickford body kit and i've jacked my car up no worries.
