    If you plan on having Daniel help you on your car make sure to use treated wood. LOL J/K

    I don't mean to highjack, but since there are alot of people looking at this I have one question. I am going to be doing two rotisserie restorations in the future and I have seen alot of Camaros on rotisseries without reinforcment bars in the door openings to keep everything square. My two cars, one is a t-top car and the other is a hard top. Any comments?

    If you were to write detailed instructions and give out exact measurements I'm sure people would buy them. I know I would.

    Parts list + measurements = $$

    It would be as simple as some one paypaling you the money and you emailing the plans to them. Or if you wanted to get fancy, you could make a video like wookie and sell that.

    I haven't really given it any thought to sell the plans, but I guess it would be easy enough to do. I'd just have to take a few measurements. You can get a good idea of measurements and materials on page 3 of this thread. You can build one of these for around $150 or less. :)
    Thanks!

    Not to steal Daniel's thunder, but I typed up detailed plans and a parts list quite some time ago for the wooden rotisserie I built for my 76. My rotisserie is not as beefy as Daniel's, but it has gotten the job done and has been a great help in my project. I am 6' 240 lb, so turning the car is not an issue for me, so no counterweights (which is a great idea). In retrospect, I did not mount my body high enough up to get 360* turning (I thought I was going to be low on overhead room, long story), but that can easily be fixed. Just mount it ~18" higher than I did :D

    Hopefully Daniel doesn't mind me posting this here. :) This is merely my plan, so feel free to tweek it to fit your needs. But it has worked fine and I climbed inside the shell all the time and it held up great.

    should'nt have any problems with the hard top, but a T-top i dont know about. The bodys are very light and only take 2 people to pick them up.

    Mine worked great, I could spin the car with one finger.
    I even put casters on it so I could roll it outside.
    Best $50 bucks I ever spent.

    BTW, my car is still on the rotisserie almost 9 months later :confused: :whine: I was hoping to be further along by now. At least I can tell you that the rotisserie is safe lol[/QUOTE]


    So how long has the car been on the rottisserie now:crazy: :screwup: :happy:

    Just wondering how it's holding up.

    Wow man, looks great! I just put the wheels on mine tonight... should be ready to go now. Unfortunately I have to put it on the Rotis outside then spin it upside down to roll it back into the garage... Just gotta wait on the weather.
