Buick40, What's keeping your setup from rolling all ther way over?35 buick40 said:This is a poor mans method. It works pretty well. Two people can easily tip it. I use an engine hoist to catch and lower it when tipping it back to its wheels.
I think you are talking about the one at this site http://www.liqui-technik.com/kipp1_e.html from what I have seen this one works well... puts alot of stress on the suspension components, but not anything terrible... Unless your suspension is badly worn...ndustrl said:Buick40, What's keeping your setup from rolling all ther way over? Accessible Systems http://www.accessiblesystems.com/etfiles/et02.php is the only "tilter" (not the full rotisserie) I can find on the internet. They mention a competitor but who? I know I have seen a company with a tilter at Carlisle and Hershey that utilizes a basic elecrtic drill to rotate the car onto it's side, but can't find it anywahere. Anybody know what/who I am talking about.

hello all just a little update here on the rotiss. just a little background here for you guys so you understand where i am coming from .i have a 59 chevy wagon which i did a body off and even with a lift it was still a bit of a p.i.t.a .with the rotiss. i can actually say i enjoy some of the cleaning tasks which sucked the last time. for instance 2 weekends ago i rolled the car out of my warehouse spun the car 90' and procedded to pressure the bottom of the car removing most of the undercoat and dirt without crawling on my back.this weekends project including sanding the roof much easier when the roof is now on it's side so you not standing on a milkcrate bending over the car killing your back. next project was to patch the inner rear quarter panel.it's getting a little tuff on the back squatting for hours at a time so tilt the car at a 45 and now the 1/4 panel is at your chest height much easier. then i hadda do the crummy job of stripping the gauges and harness from the dash. we know how that sucks laying on your back all twisted up trying to reach up and loosen that screw oh crap it's the wrong size socket climb outta the car and you know the deal .now picture the if you can i tilt the car to a little more than a 45 degree angle and stand up inside the door opening.now I am standing straight up inside the car while working under the dash. i don't have to be a contornionist now to reach things. i can honestly say that i enjoy working on the car more now cause i remember what a ***** it was the other way.so in my humble opinion if you can beg borrow or make one and you wanna enjoy yourself even more invest in a rotisserie59 wagon man said: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
