I got it... it makes bodywork pleasureable!
$450 for used rotisserie
$30 for Rust-Oleum JD yellow paint
4 hours with a wire wheel
1 hour with a spray gun
the look on the neighbor's face when I flip my '46 all the way over...PRICELESS

I built mine for that price. Sure made working the underside easier. It does take up a lot of room and I plan on selling mine after I'm done. It really enables you to do a lot of things standing up versus on your back...

|crashtech||Hey the only reason I can think of not to get it is if you don't have room to store it. Otherwise, it's practically a no-brainer!|

|fatboy95||I priced the metal to make one myself last week and it was around $450. Prices are really crazy on metal.|

|Magnus_Jager||I honestly doubt you could buy the metal to build it for $500. i say get it. You should be able to unload for what you paid when your done if you want to.|

|Henry Highrise||Ponchos right! Go for it and when ya get done shoot a fresh coat of paint on it and sell it for a little more than ya gave for it.|

Most of us will say....go for it........But, it's easy to spend someone elses money.
You can allways sell it again after you are finished with it.

Overbuilt is good. $500 is good. Easy access is good and that should save you some time so that's good. I think it's all good so don't let it go...

Rotisserie or not?
I've got a chance to buy a realllllly heavy duty rotisserie. The guy selling it just took an early 70s Suburban off of it! He's asking $500. I know its overbuilt for my 46 Ford, but the price seems right, and it would make things a whole lot easier. It would also (more than likely) push out the completion date, because I had that $500 earmarked for some other stuff.
What do folks think?
