yeah, i guess. i was hoping a "pro" like Mann, might give me a slightly more experienced answer/opinion.

those pinch creases/welds really have me a bit anxious about using them as i'm trying to figure out where pressure is really applied when using the provided jack. there seems to be competing opinions on putting pressure "inboard" of the crease (ie, towards the center of the car) vs. distributing it "about" the crease (both towards the outside of the car and towards the center of the car). i also wonder how wide the "jack point" support is about this "notched" pinch weld as i have heard the suggestion of jacking up the car and putting a jack stand in that area at the same time (but that would require about 8+ inches of width which can support the car!)
