They are looking great, and certainly will perform the intended function.

It has given me some interest in replicating them. I have another car that has air suspension on all four wheels, with a big travel. It's a pain raising this car on jack stands, coupled with the fact that there are no good support points that will allow you to move freely underneath. Your idea is on point! Thanks.

Well Esteban and anybody else who might be keen on reproducing a set of these wheel stands, I can say they will get good use out of them because they are quick and easy to pop under a wheel which provides easy access to inspect something that maybe concerning you as well as offering a high level of safety.

Just to help make your experience even easier should you decide to build a set, here is a link to the YouTube video that inspired and motivated me to go ahead with my build.

Best of luck, Russ.
