That reminds me of the previous owner (moron) of my 5k. He (or maybe
another monkey lad) tried to jack up both wheels at the left side at
the same time, lifting exactly between the jack points. Of course that
didn't work, and the metal at that point got squeezed in. Can't say I
have a big problem with that, but it's annoying anyway..

BTW: Will put hot wax into every small location in the car body today,
to prevent any rust. Fully galvanization and hot way every 3 years has
to be good. :-) No rust at all yet, and that's with 181k miles..
