Any tips for lifting more securely with a standard hydraulic jack?
make sure the jack is on a completely flat surface. lift the car a little bit and move the jack around as hard as you can. if it moves you need to re seat it.
also if it starts to tip or move while you're lifting, lower it and retry.

Dismounted and fixed A pillar fabric.

Waxed it, half way with polisher and half way by hand since the F machine broke down.
