    I got my car swinging today on the new rotisserie that I'm building. Got a couple more things to add, but I had to get it in the air to see what else I need. This is going to work out great! Weekend project is to put a small brace in each corner and add a turning attachment.

    It just made sense to me to use materials that I already had at the shop. Most of the wood was given to me by a friend that moved a few months ago. He didn't want to take it to his new house. I've got maybe $30 invested in hardware.

    When stripped down, the car shell only weighs around 500 lbs. I've got a 2 foot step ladder made out of 1x2's and rivets that is factory rated @ 200 lbs :confused: This structure is no prob for 500 lbs. I'll post final pics later if anyone is interested.

    EDIT: More pics on pages 3 and 4.

    LOL Yeah, when I'm working on the top of the car I can bolt a sheet of plywood to the bottom and flip it over at lunch time. I'll get a couple of bar stools and be in business! LOL

    Actually, I've got my eye on a Trans Am that I may put in line to get on the ferris wheel when I get this one off ;)

    PS: thanks for the compliments guys. It always feels good to get an atta boy from my peers!

    First wooden one I've seen. Great job on it.

    I guess if you want it stationary, that'll work nicely. Think you could modify it for wheels ???
