Got it on the rotisserie today. Slow process. Not much extra time to work on it. I did notice one thing today. After getting my original car back after storing for 3 years it has a fold down rear seat and my donor shell didn’t have one. Haven’t looked into it a lot but from what I’ve read they are kind of a bitch to switch over. Not sure what to do yet.

One of our forum members did the conversion a few years ago

Keep in mind that the rotisserie should not be used to fit or replace any panels. The body flexes too much and nothing will line up when on the wheels. You can put suspension stuff back on and put back on floor do panel replace and fit then back to rotisserie to sand prime and paint would be normal.
Went and looked at pic on rotis. How is it mounted in the rear? Usually use the rear spring mount area.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Thank you Carolina,not sure your name, Ya I really just want to get things cleaned up,sanded. What to make and fit frame connectors so they are ready to go. It don’t need much other than the very bottoms of the quarters. Both sides.
Right now I have it mounted on the rear bumper mount holes. Looked at the spring mount but could only find a place to put 1 bolt. Just thought there was potential for more movement with one bolt. Right now I’m just rotating it to work on it then it gets set back on the cart. Thoughts???

Just did not want you to start cutting with it suspended that way. Even a pretty rust free car bends just that darn gravity works every time.

Made the decision today to have a body man come over and check out what I have to work with. Although it don’t need much but some labor to clean up areas and some patch work I decided to take the plunge and replace both rear quarters and do it right and not just patch. I get impatient/lazy doing some stuff myself and I’m old enough to know my strengths and weaknesses. So the shell goes to him next month to do it right while I work on removing and cleaning other parts working on engine, suspension, interior.

I’m making it what I want so I didn’t need numbers matching.  Not perfect but don’t need to be Now the fun begins again.
