Oops sorry about that, my bad, Thanks for the Cool comp! Yes "Speedy Bill" Mr. Speedway Motors in Lincoln, Ne. thought the Roller Hoop would be a good attention getter at the IMI show in Indy and it did generate lots of attention and interest also for all the Speedway products for Modifieds, just last week Speedway used it again to display their goods at the Chile Bowl in Tulsa! So it works well for restoration work and displaying products. I'll try to post a few pictures from the show.

|Koolaid||Do a search for Roller Hoop Rotisserie on google for another option. It looks like the owner of that place actually posted on here and provided a link, but that was stripped out so I won't direct link, but it comes up as the first one in google. Saw one holding a modified at the IMI show in Indianapolis in December and thought it was pretty darn cool. Then again a lot of the coolness was that it was holding a modified!|

new concept in rotisseries
Hi guys I don't get around to these sites that offten, To busy in the shop working on restoration projects. A few years back I was looking for a better more effecient way to get all the resto work done we have lined up. I came up with my own design rotisserie that I wanted and it worked out very well for us. I'm a small shop with a big back log of work so now we have six of these Roller Hoops up and rolling in our shop and appx two dozen across the country. Take a look some time www.******** might work as well for some of you guys.

Hmmm.... little confused....
OK.....I am setting up my father in laws rotiss. It will be on a 65 Satellite. I was planning to mount it to the front frame bumper bolts and the rear much like a regular made rotiss for sale.
I believe some are saying this may not be a good idea as stress on the frame may be a problem..... if mounted in this manner ( or maybe i am reading some of this incorrectly) ?
I am of course taking the fenders off and doors(Two door) planning to brace from side to side ?
X pattern ? Is there a proper pattern does someone have pictures of the bracing ?
Is it fair to say that any floor work should be completed on it's wheels ?
It would be great to have a checklist formed on here about using a rotiss and the do's and absolute do nots ? I realize we all have our opinions but you guys must all agree on some points of concern ?
Leave it to you experts !

|buicfrank||Gentlemen I have had a tilter for a few years. Love it, BUT I should have bought the jack with it. Using the engine hoist requries more room and to me is harder to use. If you can afford it get the jack too. Just my 2 cents. Frank|

|kilgorq||I built one for 150.00 about a month ago and what would have taken me several days took me less than. I cleaned and sandblasted the whole bottom of my 69 Mustang in about 9 Hours. I am also building subframe connectors and it is a cakewalk compared to lying on the ground to do it.|

I've been lurking here forever, but thought I would chime in on this topic. These pics are of the rotisserie I built. I first built it to hold a 1970 Chevy K20 frame and then the cab.
Right now, it's holding a true 2nd owner COPO car (my buddy that does all the painting is restoring the car for another friend of ours)
I have always been concerned about a car body "sagging" in the middle. Because of this, I fabbed a replacement frame that bolts onto the rig. That way, the body is held firm. I also put "stringers" across the bottom to keep it from flexing. I did use softer tires to allow moving the deal to the blasting area.
The problem with mine is that once the "frame" is bolted up, we have to lift the body up to bolt it on. Now, when I hit the lottery, I'll buy a lift and that won't be a problem, but for now, we just use "manpower" and hoists. Today, my buddy cleaned and primed the underside. He said all went well (that's kinda what I hoped for with an expensive car like that!!!!)

|59 wagon man||well i bought an acces. systems rotiss. at the charlotte auto fair seemed to be the best deal and best built. will keep you posted on how it works|

|59 wagon man||one thing i can say about accessable systems is that they seem to be good honest people. years ago i bought one of their tilters and had some issues and the customer service was excellent. i am now thinking of buying a rotisserrie and that kind of service is def weighing into my decision|

I'm looking at this one with a lot of interest, but I have one concern. Take a close look at pictures 3, 4, & 5 on the page Rob linked (click the thumbnail for the bigger pic.) Is anyone else concerned with how much the vertical jack is flexing/bending while it's under load? I like the system, but if I buy one I think I'll go with the engine hoist version myself. Not only is it $700 cheaper, plus shipping, but that's one less thing to worry about. I have an engine hoist, but if I didn't, I know the $700 I would save on the system would pay for at least 2 of them.
So what do you think? Is that amount of flex in the jack something to be concerned about, or am I just overly cautious (paranoid?)

From what i've read and heard is that these rotisseries are the bees knees.
My father in law has made up one for my 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie that i have stripped back and am going to take the body off the frame to get it sand blasted.
What i need to know is if anyone has any tips, do's, don't's, how to realign the body when you put it back on etc. A complete step by step guide with photo's would be good, even better if it is a Galaxie!!!
I also need to know if you should leave the doors on the fastback or take them off( the glass is still in the car) for strength etc.
i imported the car last year(2006) in August and it has alot of surface rust on the chassis and some holes in the trunk and some rusted beams. So when i got the car into NEW ZEALAND, i was a bit pissed off that it had more rust in it than i was lead to believe!!!
The rest of the car is mint and looks great but the laws in my country are quite tough on rust and i have to get it all fixed before i can get it on the road here.
Like i said any help would awesome

|shine||mine is built to hold vettes mainly. no flex what so ever. thats why i built a cradle. the ones tha attach at each end of the body i dont trust. too much stress on the body. anywhere from 600 to 2k for stripping a body. vettes are slow going and take a lot of hrs. i love working on mine. i can turn the body on it's side to work on it or lower it down to do the sides. beats hell out of laying on cold concrete getting crap in your face|
