    Before you all say it, I know, I'm a damn idiot. I wasn't sure of the jacking point for an S13 and was rushing. I use a circular pressing on the passenger side.. the jack put a hole in the floor of my car (FML - see image).

    Do you think it is repairable?

    And where are the jacking points?

    Anything is repairable with some time and effort (or money). That shouldn't be too bad, will need to carpet and any sound deadening out from that side, then cut out and patched or plated either side (make sure there's no rust left between).

    As for jacking points, I've always used the front cross member or chassis rails to lift my old Nissans, not had an issue. Might be worth buying a jack with a larger lifting pad on it as that one looks quite small.

    Thanks Panzo!
    I've found a garage nearby who work on Jap cars regularly, they're happy to weld the floor pan.

    Now to jack it up and not make the same mistake again.
