Floor jack pads

For those who are anal about looks of the bottom side of your rigs and don't dare want it scratched up when using a floor jack.....well, here ya go. And if you have a drain plug at the bottom of the differential housing....well again, here ya go.

Pretty easy to do until you get into the steel mesh.

I Don't Care. Do you?
We're going to need to know what size tire to use, Craig. We're not all engineers around here. Geez.

Since floor jack tray's vary in diameter, it's hard to say exactly as to which size tire will fit your jack, but will say look for a narrow tire. The pieces you see are 7" wide by 5.5" deep or long. Don't remember the actual car tire size.

I do hope you realize I was being sarcastic. Perhaps you have been too long out on the boat and the sea air is affecting your thought processes?

Huh? But that's the type of questions I expect from you knuckleheads. Haven't been on the ocean for almost two months but starting Easter day...look out.

If I send you several old tires, would you pick the best one, cut the pad and just send me back the pad?

Hey! I want the hole out of the old tire, sorta like a doughnut hole.

Good job, Craig, on the jack protector.

If you have done a full resto, wouldnt you need to use a bias ply tire instead of a radial?

If only I had a big band saw with a fine metal blade. Nope, Instead I use a hacksaw to make the two initial cross cuts. The cuts along the length (side) of the tire was cutting thru rubber only = sharp knife. Once I removed a large chunk of tire, I laid it down on two large wooden blocks on the shop bench. Using a electric jig saw, with the blade going down between the two wooden blocks, I was able to cut the pieces into 5.5" pieces. The hole was done via a 1-1/8" hole saw on the drill press at a very slow speed.

Yes, I ended up with 12 pieces. 4 of these are destined for my neighbor's a car lift, especially when I want to borrow it to work on one of my rigs.

Only if it's a concours resto. If you do a modified resto then radials are acceptable for use! :rolleyes:
(and for the Sheldon Cooper's who don't understand...it is sarcasm!)

Great idea Craig!
