    That was me, I guess. Only advice I can give is, use a good-quality
jack with a strong handle, don't lift any higher than you have to (to mini-
mize any potential damage from falls ;) ), and go slowly and carefully. I
don't mean to scare you, just forewarn you.

    Oh yeah, MOST IMPORTANTLY pull and push the car via the jack handle. 
Try to refrain from pulling or pushing the car by the body work, this is
why they usually fall off the jack.

   This is the method I use every autum to put my car in "deep storage".
