Since no one else posted nothing, I'll respond. I, for one, have at
various times, had several different cars completely supported by jack
stands for weeks at a time in my garage. It ain't no big deal.

Also, the Midget is very light. You'll have less than 600 pounds on any
one jackstand. No big deal. Just be careful.

I always placed the two rear jackstands right on the leaf spring front
mounts. I put the front jackstands just aft of the front tires on the
unibody frame rail. When I spend much time under the car, I leave the
hydaulic jack extended right about in the center of the car in case
something bad happens.

Truly, spending solitary time on your back gazing up at your favorite
obsession is one of those bonding moments you need to experience.
