I wouldn't recommend using that as a jacking point... they are prone to failure as they can be rusted out and you won't know it until a critical point when it breaks off.

That's a pretty good idea... I may just do that.

However, I was told to leave all the studs in the case... as removing them would mean I'd have to buy new ones.
