Body Rotissarie Help
 
Has anyone ever built there own car body rotissarie? I know they can be expensive to buy and I've browsed some web sites that gave me some ideas but was wondering what ideas you guys had? If you could give me an idea how you made it and the cost if you don't mind. Anything would help. More info the better. I like to build one for a 73 Monte.

Thanks Andy

Rob is "the man" on his setup, isn't he? I don't have one (yet??) for my Monte either. Maybe willys36 or shine will post up a picture or two of the ones they have.

Autobody101.com has downloadable plans for a rotissarie. I followed them and with my own ideas made 2 rotissarie's. One for a 70 El Camino and the other for my 64 Mustang.

I made my base from Kenworth truck frame rails and i can put an axle under 1 end and a toung in the other end and toe it to the media blaster if needed.

I have this one for sale if you ever get to southern In. You would have to modify the mount for your car.

i have seen metal ones built like that :thumbup:
but i dont have enough room to roll my car around in the garage :D

WOW! What an ingenious approach. Can't believe he only spent $30 on the lumber to build that. Beats the daylights out of spending a couple hundred in steel to build one yourself or $800+ to buy one. I may have to seriously consider building one of those for my Polara when I get done with the deuce.

rotissserie plans
 
We used plans down loaded for free from harwood, Google harwoodperformance rotisserie. and the resources info. all our steel was free from Demolition jobs either we did or from friends in the construction business. Just had to Buy 8 matching wheels from HF and hardware store bolts. We built a roll around gantry crane to lift the bodies up to attach and balance things so the body will spin easily.

Haven't checked in for a while. I like the wood building approach. Never even thought of that. I'll look into it. Better that spending money on steel.
