    Stratos, thanks for the very quick reply. I can approximate where the lift pads are, based on your photograph. When you have time, can you take a picture from underneath to show where the front and rear lift pads go?

    Many thanks. That makes me more confident. It has been jack stands for me all these years.

    Regards,

    Andres

    Do you have a Stradale or a Grp4?

    Looks like a G4, but shouldn't it have a roof vent? Air filter looks different. Have only seen two or three of these in real so not sure what it should look like. Very nice color and livery!

    Asking in reference to Andres questions on jacking points as I believer the Stradale and Group 4's had different arrangements.

    Early cars had no roof vents, early cars had "open type" air filters, not the "Safari" type used later. I like the livery too, thanks.

    Very cool, the Stratos needs a bold color, it backs up the boldness one needs to own. Very very cool, can't wait to hear about it getting back on the road!

    I was cleaning the Stratos for the local club concourse (not a recommended habitat for a Stratos) and looked back during a break and said, "that would make a good photo." Here it is. (The Stratos and the shop look neater than in real life.)

    Andy, perchance do you rent out your garage on occasion for surgical procedures? I've never seen such a clean setting for a beautiful car! Fred

    Does your car still have the original Glaverbel windscreen?

    Do you have a large hi-res copy? THAT would make for a great wallpapper for a PC

    :)
