Looks more like a rotisserie, to make fitting and welding so much easier on a major effort. I've seen plans for DIY/homebuilt versions.

no one but me sees my underside...so I don't do anything with it. Looks the same as the day I bought it....except maybe for the surface rust color on the black painted t-boxes I put in.

I made my rotisserie. I looked at one and figured out what I didn't like about it and came up with my own idea. It is extremely solid and I love being able to work on the bottom of the car without being on my back.

I think that I am into it material wise around 175. I plan on restoring more cars when I get done with my mustang so i may keep it but it takes up too much room in a two car garage so i may end up selling it and building another one when the time comes. It only took me a couple days to build.

Nick, that is my kind of build - welded subframe connectors, traction bars, and an x-pipe! It doesn't get much better than that!

It must suck not being able to drive your car... I mean, my car is pretty darn clean underneath, but no car in the world is 100% leak free, and road grime and dust does get on it no matter what.

Yea i painted mine by hand with a paint brush in my dirt driveway with my car on jack stands... but i still got it done and it was worth it... I just went a few square inches at a time with a wire brush, a sponge, rust inhibitor and some sort of paint my dad told me to use... im still way jealous of your super clean cars but hey, i love Suzie too much to let her rust away (any more than she has already) been a little over a year and still looks just as good...

hey plcdude how did you do that? it looks like it was on jackstands all along. which was probably pretty hard. did you scrape everything off by hand? then paint it with undercoating?

It was on Jackstands the whole time.

I got very familiar with the underside of the car. Yes I scraped everything by hand, roughed up the primer that was under all the dirt and grime, then used truck bed coating on it. Hopefully, I won't ever have to do it again. I think it turned out pretty nice though.
