Snowman881, maybe you can use a 2x6 that sits under each jack point, with a block of wood in the center between them to spread the weight over three points on the rocker panel. Then put your jack in the center of the 2x6 under the block of wood and lift the whole side of the car up, then put your stands under the jack points (leaving the 2x6 in place).

I asked a tech about this issue and he told me that the rocker panel underneath the plastic can be used as a place for stands. The plastic will flex a bit, but won't harm the frame underneath.
