Made a rotisserie from plans I got out of the AutoResorer magazine. It cost about $120 in steel, I added casters so I could move it. I had to repair the front frame rails before I could get it on the rotisserie but that is finally done. The rotisserie is holding fine and should make my repairs alot easier and quicker. The thought of welding upside down doesnt suit me well.

I wish I had a rotisserie when I did my floor supports. I got few burns through my coveralls, then through me while doing that.

I welded some stuff upside down... it is painful to say the least, I love nothing more than having molten metal burn through my clothing and skin

I don't suppose you want to list all the steel that was necessary, or better yet, provide a link to the plans? $120 is a small price to pay for my sanity.

Could I get you to fax me those plans or if they are in electronic for, email them to me. I just build a Rotisserie from plans off of Sandy's Garage. These were the PDF version of the Muscle Car review. I wanted to compare the plans......

Sounds like you got a great deal on the steel....

I finished mine a couple of weeks ago and got my coupe on it. My fram rails need replacing and I wanted to try and do it on the rotisserie. Not sure if that is possible??

I had to add some support on the riser bar so that it would support the weight of the coupe. First attempt was unsuccessful as it broke the welds. (embarising) I stepped up higer amp welder and had more success. I am now looking at adding a RAM jack to the rotisserie to try and make it easier getting the car on and off the rotisserie.

How did you get your car on it?? Have you thought about getting it off?

A rotisserie is the best tool I ever got. I was luck enough to trade labor for a new one. There's nothing like detailing the under carraige while standup !

I'm highly jealous. How do you get the car off the ground enough on a rotisserie?

If I can get the plans scanned onto someones computer, (I dont have a scanner) I will email the plans to anyone that is interested. The plans were published in the March 2002 issue of AutoRestorer magazine.
