As some of you know I am building a Pro-Street 454 Vega. I wanted to sand blast the entire car and built this jig to rol the car over. Cost was less than $100 and can hold at least 5 times the weight of the car.
That's way too well designed and built to be redneck. That is a great solution to the problem at hand. Great job!
Now if you had flipped it up and it kept going right through the wall......then you've got a shot at being redneck!
I can't tell from the video: Is the forward "thing" - in any way - linked to the rear "thing" unit or whatever?
Would you use a saftey block when it's tipped on it's side?
Yes the front jig is the same as the back jig. They are connected together with a 14' 2*4 for safety. Not sure if connecting them together was needed but would not know it till the car was on it side. Thats not when I wanted to find a problem. I did make up some blocks to put on the floor just in case. Car is very stable on its side and should make this project much easier to work on.
