Honestly a little more than I planned BUT I didnt have any of the material handy except the small square stock and the tubing.

The 20' peice of 4x2 was $125 or so.....
The Casters were about $30 each.

The rest was just an hour or so of time and welding on my part.

The pdf file that's on page 5 is no longer available....
If anyone has it saved, please forward it to me at davebuckholts@yahoo.com

I need the distance between the uprights, or the distance between the mounting holes on the body would be better.
I'm going to be using 2 X 2 square tubing for the entire thig except of course the round stock needed for the cross pieces. I made the one for my fastback out of the same stuff......

I'm new here, but I've been lurking for years.

I got a lots of good ideas from this thread so i thought I'd show you my rotissery.

The problem I had is that my shed is only about 7foot tall, most on here look about 8-9 feet tall.

So this is how i worked around that.

Image

Starting with one really old engine stand and one really cheap china one.

Image

I Drew up a cunning plan.

Image

welded this together for the front end after I extended the height of the pivot.

Image

and this thing for the rear once I fixed the rust and suck new wheels on it.

Image

added these braces to the rear bumper mounts.

Image

so far so good!

Image

welded in a few cross braces as I don't really trust my welding that much!

Image

yeah.

Cheers guys, I dunno about nice, but it has gotten the job done, damned if I was going to lay on my back drilling out eleventy billion spot welds on the heater channels!
I should really have widened the cheap red stands base, it's a little narrow. I make sure the kids stay well away from it.
