anyone have thoughts on enlisting the use of a rotisserie when working on the under side during restoration. Who are the manufacturers and does anyone recommend one over the other. What are the price ranges between them and where might one look for a used unit?

Are they original recipe or extra-crispy?

When I was out at Carlisle last fall I saw a few, new and used, neat idea. I saw someone had pics of their stang on one on their website, but it was so long ago i dont remember who it was... Not that any of my rambling has helped at all, but try a swap meet. Carlisle is great, but depending on where you're from that may be out of the question...

I go to Carlisle every April. I've seen them there, but never got an objective opinion.

I would think that a rotisserie would be great for working on the underside of the car. I'm going to replace the floorpans on my car and I'm thinking about making a rotiserrie. Are you interested in making something yourself? If so, check out this website: http://www.1962to1965mopar.ornocar.com/rotisseriebydave.html. I have also seen plans for making a bracket that goes on two engine stands that connect to both ends of the car. I'm looking at probably doing this. I'll try to find the info for you.

After pricing rotisseries, I ordered plans from Mark's Mustang in Wisconsin for $25 and built my own. I made a few mods to the plans, such as adding pneumatic wheels and also adding a long bar between both ends to give me some degree of portability (move between buildings on the farm). The bar between the ends will be in the way when the car comes off, but that's the price you pay. I figure I have about $140 into my rotisserie. I can send you pics if interested.

When I purchase my mustang it was on a home made rotisserie made out of plywood. Two 3/4 pieces of plywood bolted together and cut in an octagon shape the bolted to the front and back of the car. It worked great and probably only cost $30 to make.

This looked like a good idea and easy enough to build:
