A "rotisserie" for media blasting a car body

Hello there,

Any ideas on the use of two portable engine mounts for construction of a "rotisserie" to rotate a car body for media blasting? I'm blasting a very small Mini body (350 lbs.). Thanks for any input. Rich

Here's a pic of my '47 frame on a pair of $39.95 Harbor Freight stands. This frame was light enough and lacked the "bulk" to require connecting the two stands. My only suggestions would be to add a connector, and drill some indexing holes 45° apart in one head so you can lock it in position.

I have a 66 Nova on a rotissorie that I made from 2 engine stands mounted to wooden frames on either end of the car. Works great!! Plenty strong. Its actually my brothers car. My car was also on it but it is a Celica so it was smaller. Ill see if I can figure out how to post a pic
