This was my problem.  The right rear tire went flat and I couldn't lift it
by hand high enough to get the jack underneath.  Remember, my car was hit on
the passenger side and has fiberglass damage.  The only thing I could think
of was to use the OEM jack at the jack point on the right rear and slowly
lift the car.

I was even more amazed at how well constructed the underbody is as it never
gave.  I believe I could have completely lifted the car from that point but
I didn't push my luck.
