where is the pinch weld? somewhere under the bottom plastic cover?
It's the vertical flat piece of metal that runs along the sides of the car. Usually has a couple small cutouts to indicate where you should jack up the car. Looks like this: (shown with protector so you don't damage it with the jack)

Jack it up at the narrower cutout on the left hand side of that picture. It helps to angle the jack away from the larger cutout portion. Once it's in the air you should be able to fit a jackstand in. I haven't had any issues with that yet.
