Rotisserie - Door Bracing

I am putting my 65 Satellite 2 dr HT on a rotisserie very soon.

I will have the usual items off the car, trunk, hood, fenders and doors. I see that some guys weld a brace across the doors for support and some don't use anything ?

What are you guys doing for this ? If you are bracing the doors with a piece of square tubing or similar where are you welding it ? ex. top of the door frame, middle of the door frame ???

More details the better..... thx

With both doors off you should tack weld bracing between the doors. Weld a brace from drivers side to pass side through the inside. I like to put one near the roof line and one above the hump in the floor.

Does it matter if it's a unibody car ? Does that still need bracing ?
