Where does the jacking point label fit on the series mm, I got one off Rob Thomas but am unsure of its location

Ohhhhh ... could you post of a photo of the label? I think I vaguely recall Rob T making repro labels for something, not sure if it was that.

And I'm curious about the answer as well!
I have two Minors in upstate New York. One is the 1961 Traveller my dad bought new that year in London, where I was born. It's had a hard life but is still running cheerfully at 54K miles. The second is the oldest Minor confirmed to survive in North America, a LHD high-light Tourer built in April 1949. It's a total basket case, but will be restored over the coming years.

I haven't got a photo but if you go onto the series mm site on here & look under series mm porn & I think its page 3 you will see photos posted by Rob Thomas

That label was usually tied to the screw jack in the toolkit I think.

LOL, "Alta and MM porn," had missed that one! Searched the forum for "jacking" and found nothing about labels.

The porn thread did have pics of Rob's bonnet-lock and voltage-regulator labels, but nothing for jacking points ??

Aha! Much obliged, and thank you. I'm still many years away from labels for the 1949 "USA" Tourer, but a man can dream ... thanks again.

Stevey, that does seem the logical position to put the label, thanks

Just came upon this thread and thought I would post a picture of an original jacking instruction card I found under the back seat of my 1949 saloon and my attempt at reproducing a 'new' one for the finished restoration.
