Jim I have to agree with JBinMD If the stands aren't the same the car cant ever be level even if it was strait to begin with. Not in my mind any way lol

Are you saying that in some places the floor has two layers, with new sheet metal above and original rusted floor pan below?


I too am confused with same statement, Is good metal welded on over the top of bad?

Also shouldn't we move this thread to welding section?
All to often we let to many good Body work threads stay in general section.

If your garage floor is sloped and all of your jack stands exactly the same, the car will be parallel to the floor but not actually level.
That will work for most of the measurements being discussed.

If the floor is uneven & sloped and the Jack stands are uneven and the car is leveled ?

I'm messing with you : :rotfl:
