Camaro rotisserie

Does anybody have any info for a Camaro rotisserie that can be home fabricated? I saw a few different types out there but none were Camaro specific. I have a little welding experience on a stick welder, but none on the Lincoln 130 amp mig welder i just purchased.I would really like to try it myself,but i'm open to everyones input.Thanks for listening to me babble,Joe

Rotisseries are universal. The only difference will be the plate that mounts to the car. Usually thru the front two body mounts at the cowl and the very back two at the trunk/bumper area.

Pick up the latest issue of either High Performance Pontiac or Pontiac Enthusiast, not sure which, but in the back they have some drawings of a rotisserie they built from scrap and cheap engine stands. Previous issues tells how they built it.

With an engine stand it is better for a frame. You cannot get 360 degree rotation with a body mounted to it. The most you could probably get is 20-30 degree tilt. A frame on the other hand on an engine stand you could get 360 degree rotation. But you also have to watch what type of stand that you get because most of them have the swivel area tilted up slightly to compensate for the weight of the engine.

If you can fabricate you should be able to copy this picture and measure your car. Not much to it really.
