The jack points for a Tesla Model 3 are kind of small, formed of smooth metal, and very, very close to the body-colored rocker panels that curve underneath. So to protect those rocker panels from getting gouged or scratched, you can buy or make jack lifting pads. People have shared a couple of DIY designs based on hockey pucks (here and here), and there are sets for sale on ebay. But I want to share a very inexpensive, very easy DIY jack lifting pad.
- A piece of 2x4, about 2.5" long. Length isn't too important.
- A piece of 1" dowel rod, 3/4" long.
- A screw, about 1.5" long
- Electrical tape, 3/4" wide.
