I have been going through your GTV restoration thread(s) with great interest. You are obviously far advanced compared to me, both in progress and in skill. I have a process question:
I sourced a used rotisserie, but plan to first construct an elevated trolley to attach to the suspension mounting points, to start on the floors, sills, frame rails, etc. I just don't have confidence that the monocoque has sufficient stiffness for a rotisserie yet. My door hinges are toast, so I was thinking of getting new ones, setting/confirming the door gaps, getting it on the trolley, rechecking the doors, and getting on with the repairs. What do you think about that course of action?
In looking at your threads (I'm still going through them), it appears that you did roughly the same thing unless I've misunderstood something.
