How do put the front of an RWD F30 on jack stands?

It looks like the RWD F30 doesn't have an exposed front center jack point like the one used in Kies Motorsports video.

My ideas:
(1) Remove the under tray thing and find the jack point
(2) Jack from jack point and put stand somewhere else

Who has done this?

Jack from jack joint, slide ramp under front wheel, lower onto ramp. Repeat on other side.

Or ask bkkeys how he does it in videos.

The front jack point is in the same spot as in the kies video it’s just covered by the stupid splash guard. Once you get the front up put the jack stands under the jack stand points on each side of the car.
