Love your work, Pete, and am learning a lot from you. I've finished this thread and will start on your prior one shortly.
I'm hardly the first, but I really wish I had made this first instead of the rotisserie that I previously made (which was a poor design and wobbled, and I was never fully confident about). A shell tipper is so much simpler and easier to make. I am going to add bolt on floor out riggers (for want of a better name) to stabilise it (so there are definitely no accidental tipping!) but also to be able to bolt wheels on to aid relocation in the shed. The out rigger pieces will bolt on in the 3 different angles the shell can be; normal, 45 degree and 90 degree. Once in the right place the wheels will pop off. The wheels will just lift it like 5mm's so easy to get on and off .. haven't worked that bit out yetNext time I do serious bodywork, I'm following your lead.
On axle stands in the front yard....not again.
I think this is a safe way, if tedious. I could make a full length piece but I would need to make some sort of brace system to ensure the roof did not move ... maybe?Interesting technique. I have a need to reform the windshield lip on the '73 Berlina. This might be the way to do it.
