Hi guys,

I saw this picture I while back and saved it because I wanted to make up some of sort similar rolling platform. I thought it would make life easier around the workshop. But before I go and make one up I thought I'd see what others use. All ideas, photos, designs, advice appreciated.

Here's my Sprint body on a dolly similar to the one shown in the photo you posted with the Duetto. It appears to differ in that mine seems simpler than the one in your photo, uses lighter gauge wood, and the body sits lower.

I just used 2X6's because I wasn't worried about structural strength since I located the casters directly under the load-bearing points on the body. I attached it to the rear of the body at the points where the front of the trailing arms attach, using sections of angle iron. At the front, it bolted to the two tabs at the back of the crossmember (I think that only early 105 chassis had these tabs - not sure of their function other than to bolt to dollies).

Mine was intended just to transport the body to the mediablaster and metal/paint shop - so it sat low to provide stability on the towtruck. The one on the Duetto in your picture may be designed to raise the body higher, allowing easier access to work on the underside. My bodyman used a hoist to access the underside, and removed the dolly while the body was in his shop.
