Very nice! Here's how mine came out. I was thinking I'd have to jack the car a bit to relieve the weight, but the jack screws can be adjusted with the weight still on them. With the small bases, I'd not want to do any "work" without the rotisserie still in place but I may remove one of the spreader bars for creeper access. Thanks to all for your input!
