Default Jack Stand placement 31 Coupe ?

Need some advice folks, I have to do some brake work. Where do I place the floor jack to lift the front and where should the jack stands be placed to avoid bending or damaging something ? Thanks in advance for help.

Jack it up in the middle of the front axle and place the stands about 6" inside of the axle ends to support the car and work on the brakes. Also, when adjusting the brakes, place stands at the end of each axle to keep the rods from being pulled and giving a wrong adjustment.
