Rotisserie car

Postby 75Monz » Wed Apr 17, 2019 4:09 pm

This year, I plan on finally tearing the rest of my 75 TC down, blasting the underside, start on the front suspension re-do, sub- frame connectors and my rear suspension. I was thinking of getting a rotissarie to make work under the car easier access. Will have motor/trans removed, most of the interior out, and any wiring, fuel and brake lines underneath too. Guessing with all that removed, should be around 2000 lbs or there about. I was looking at a rotisserie that Eastwood sells that is 3000 lb rated on casters for around $1k.

Anybody put a monza on a rotisserie before? Any pro's/con's to turning it on it's side and doing suspension work? My other thought was make an elevated platform that I could sit up under the car to do the work with body on sort of like a chassis table, like I made for my vega drag car when I was putting a 14 point alston in it. Frame rail is definitely cheaper that a rotisserie and fairly easy to make, just getting the car up onto one it a bit dicey, lol.

Hi Jeremy,
Dave (SOLSAKS) on this form put his TC on a Rotisserie. Hopefully he will pipe in and say any ups or downs with it.

Rotisserie would be nice for welding in all the brackets for sure.

I wouldn't mind putting mine on a rotisserie to really detail and clean the unibody.
Would probably end up making my own. Why spend $1K for something to be shipped to the house when I can spend 2 weeks chasing parts and spending $2K in material and time!

Someone on this site a few years back made a rottiserie that was a half circle of plywood bolted to the bumper mounts. very simple and seemed to work well.

Someone on a square-body site hooked me up with this link. http://redwingsteelworks.com/wp-content ... 022015.pdf , plans for building your own. Web site redwingsteelworks.com also has the plans for building one of the loop type too, all free, my favorite word! :D Think I am going to see what I can find at the steel yard for materials for the first one and see what the materials list will run me to make it, want to build it with the rams and add a centering device to each too with bearings, much easier for one man operation that way.
