Lionel you need to take into account that the front chassis legs are not parallel & your rotisserie needs to allow for this before you weld / bolt everything together

Hello Greig,

I have already factored that in, but that is not the problem. I went back and fixed. No one has figure it out yet.

The last photo is my new rotisserie that I just made for the SS. Can someone tell me what is wrong? I got a little overzealous and almost crew it up.

Let see who will find out?
the horizontal piece that connects to the chassis legs has been welded right across. This means you have limited vertical adjustment ... ?

Greig,

I did consider making one like yours. There is a problem, yours occupies too much real estate, and it is not easy enough to move around. Anyway, I fixed mine and here are the most recent photos. I can play with it during weekends only and I hope to have it done by this weekend hopefully. Pete, that was not the problem. I made it so that I can lift vertically at the base and adjust vertically at the arms. Additionally, the arms are long enough that it can reach under the car. As shown on photo.

It will support it but you do not want to do any longitudinal support structure removal. The Mercedes was rescued from the trash. I have been accused of Dumpster diving. I am trying to make my home away from home an eclectic man made cave.

Laurence,

Yes, and will be adjustable for different cars. Although, mine will be strictly for Alfas, it could also be used for other cars.

Lionel

The problem with occupying too much real estate was precisely why I built mine, to get away from that cubic metre (volume) of steel framing at either end of the bodyshell. Mine, when off the car both hoops lie flat against the wall around the LHS cupboard behind the car & the two plate with the rollers lie on top of the cupboard - total space needed is 40 + 40 = 80mm thick away from the wall - compare that to 2 x 1 cubic metre volume for each end of yours.

You clearly have enough storage for your frame when not in use, I don't have space to store a frame like yours & being close to the coast, it would inevitably end up outside, so would need to be galvanised to survive, thus adding to the costs.

To facilitate moving my frame around I would need to fabricate wheels for both roller plates and tie them together........but I don't need to move it for my purposes

Both have their advantages and disadvantages.....

Aye

Giulia SS Rotisserie

I just got my new Eastwood catalog and after flipping pages ran into this rotisserie: Restoration Rotisserie Plus Blue Powdercoat - Auto Body Restoration Rotisserie - Blue Powder Coat - Eastwood

Not quite the same, but closed enough. What a disappointment! I though I had an original idea! Oh well! at least I did not pay $1,500.00 plus shipping.
