You came along way in a short time,I still remember when you were showing us how to fix the cowl area leak permently (and the entire windsheils and cowl area was open)

I dont think I ever seen a picture of this car sitting on it frame and wheels yet. But I am sure we will all see that soon enough.

Keep up the great work

Wont be long till we get to here how strong the GTO motor actually is in a real muscle car

Looks great, did you build the rotisserie your self? What holds the body in place?

Yep, it is something I welded up one weekend when I was tired of laying on my back with crap raining in my face. The body bolts through the frame. I installed sleeves in the frame and welded the flush with both sides so that the tube would not crush when the bolts were tightened up. The frame has attach points to accomodate both C1 and C2 cars. I just use several pieces of 1/2" pipe as spacers to hold the body above the frame and use 3/8" all-thread to bolt it through the frame.. The rotissere can be adjusted for center of gravity so that it will rotate with just a finger touch. As I get older, it is an absolute necessity. I don't know how I painted cars without one!:L

Regards, John McGraw

Herb,

No disrespect intended to your state, but wild horses could not drag me away from Austin Texas. I spent enough time in the midwest, that if I never see snow again, it will be too soon! Down here, cars never get put away for the winter, as it could be drivable weather almost any day of the year!

Regards, John McGraw

When you are done would you post some pictures of your rotissere if you don't mind I may want to build one someday; I too don't like laying on my back. The best investment I have made has been my 2 post lift ;)

Drop me a PM with your Email addy, and I will send you some pics and drawings. I created the drawings after the fact, since I just built it out of my head, but the drawings and pics should give everything you need.

Great job John, I didn't expect anything less from you. :D

If you posted these pics and drawings, we might all be able to benefit from your work.
