Anyone have the correct dimensions for a chassis dolly?

Thanks!

I used 60x40
2-60" 2x6
and 2-40" 4x4
4x4 sitting on 2x6
caster wheels bolted to 2x6
It worked great and even loaded from stewart transport directly onto mine to roll into garage.

Not the greatest pix but gives you an idea.
Great balance front to rear and side to side.
Use the pipe insulation for the frame to sit on frame.(same as for the body buck)






put 4 pieces of 2x4 (4" length) at the edges to prevent the frame from coming of

Thanks Sam. I just went out and built one exactly the same (but with heavier casters).

Heavier but non-locking . . . I hope I don't end up regretting that later.

Mike

PS. Not that I've taken pictures of my dolly and see how the whels look from that angle, they are probably about the same size.

I am using wheel dollies I already had with 4X4's (cut to the width of the frame) on top of them. Only using 2 of the dollies with 3 cut 4X4's on each, 2 on the bottom and 1 on top for height.

No problem Mike,
hope it all turns out good.
Bigger casters will be usefull. Mine are 300# capacity each, all 4 turn, and all 4 lock.
In a smoth garage they will roll the chassis with one hand. But bigger is almost always better.
Hope this helps others who are looking for chasis dollies.
I can email my diagram in pdf form to whomever needs it, just pm me.
