Build your own Rotisserie plans
#1
Might help those doing a full restoration to make a rotisserie, especially for extensive under body work. Will probably make one myself soon and post some pics with the 72 Coupe attached.

if anyone has another plan tailored to 7173s please post

Cheers Mick

Those are really nice DIY prints. Would be fun to build one. When I do my car again I will definitely be using a rotisserie. I printed out the blue prints for this one, they are very well layed out. How hard do you think it would actually be to rotate the body on this rotisserie?? Maybe worth adding a motor to it down the road to help with rotation. Also adding a couple of grease zerks where the rotating assembly is. But overall really nice! I like it. Thanks for posting!!!

On a rotisserie that is designed correctly with left to right and up and down adjustment for balance you can turn the body with one finger. No need to add a motor or drive. I need to get mine into the garage and take some pictures. It has pretty big inflated tires with a fold up tow bar so you can take outside for blasting or pressure wash easily. I bought if from shop closing for $800. If you ever use a rotisserie you will not go back to just a lift or stands.
When painting it allows you to always have the best angle for your gun. When you are doing places like inside the trunk on top.

I printed those same plans off about a month ago. I plan to build one to work on the Cyclone with. I am planning a few modifications to lock in the height adjustment with a thru bolt as well as a plate and pin to lock in the rotation of the body versus the set bolt they have on the top. Just a couple of modifications I would feel more comfortable with from a safety perspective. I added up all of the material lengths needed and it is a fair amount of stock. I am thinking it may be close to $500 - $600 for materials. Just a guess at this point.

I would also modify the body mount fixtures to attach to the rear bumper mounting points and to the front bumper mounting points.

Yes I would probably make some minor mods to better suit the Mustang including using pins. The beauty of this one is it can easily adjust to suit many different vehicles so would be easier to sell it once done and recoup the cost of making it which is probably $500+

Agree and no need to add a grease point but more likely a brake or just use a set screw to slow down the spin. I think the main thing is to have a snug fit in the pivot tubes i.e. buy the right thickness as if too big a clearance it will bind when turning

8 sheets of plywood works well. Just saying. Cool

Now that is by far the biggest rocking horse I have ever seen. Better than laying in the floor, lol.
