Use the bolt holes in the casters to bolt all the pieces together and then add a couple of bits after you put the cab on it to stabilize.

It really doesn't need to be a tank.
My thoughts exactly and invite a couple of buddies over for burgers and beer to lay the cab down. couple of rachet straps so it does not fall over and off you go..

shine i always tilt them onto the firewall. rear cab is just too flimsy for me. if the frame is not finished you could haul it on the frame then slide it back and tilt it over. going to be a pia any way you go. before i built my rotisserie i sat cabs on the floor then tilted them over on the firewall. good luck.

Too Many Projects Why not roll it on a side for the under floor blast?? That is sturdier and no metal panel to damage. Everything else should be accessible while sitting upright.

I still need to make something so it's laying on it's back. Either that or a simple way to protect it from damage and roll it over on it's back while at the blaster.

No, the problem is I need to do the underside. I am not going to let the guy blast the roof or rear panel, I have had him destroy a vintage door for me so I am not going there. I'll get that stuff ready. But the firewall inside and out, the cowl inside and out and the floor top side and bottom is what I am planning. So I need to get the cab so it is laying on it's back. I just figured I would make something simple to roll it over there on be it a trailer or the tow truck and have him blast it, bring it back, epoxy prime it and then prep the rest and epoxy prime that before I get into the bondo work. I am a little bit off on this being I need to weld the roof all up first. But I am just thinking ahead.

I figured some kind of tilting system where a rail was bolted under the cab right where it mounts to the frame and it pivots out behind the cab leaning it back.

I thought you were talking about working on it.
Forget my ramblings.

Beg, steal or borrow or rent a trailer. Whichever is the Frugalest.

But I'll be damned if I can come up with a good way to pull this off without making a full blown cart and putting it up on a car trailer (I don't have) or the company tow truck. I have my pickup bed trailer that I could pull the bed off and use, I was hoping I could figure out a way to do that but damned if I can come up with a reasonable way.
