It dosen't look like I will be building another
Roadster any time soon. I was wondering if anybody that lives in my neck of the woods would like to use these rotisserie stands I built for my car. They are especially nice for those doing frame mods and weld cleaning. All I ask is when you are done pass them on to another builder. Let me know.

If anyone has ever seen Garage Freak's car you know it is probably the most beautiful Roadster ever built. I'm sure his fixtures are equally finessed. This is a opportunity of a life time.
Go for it!

Mike,

Those are really nice and I sure wish that I'd taken the time to build something like that. I used a rotisserie for a tube aircraft fuselage I built and it was a super time saver. I did a lot of welding mods to the cobra frame and then clean up,primer, new paint. Anybody on here even considering this, I'd put my .02 in and say grab these or build a pair. HUGE time saver and much much better quality finish when painting!

Thanks Mike for offering these to members here. Just another example of the quality of guys here on this forum.

Thanks! Mike M.

It is about 60 miles north of Daytona. It is the same Island Kennedy Space center is on. Where will you be Richard?

Mike, how did the front of the Frame hold up on these? Kirkhams uses them all the time, but they have more strength in the nose than a FFR.
We were discussing using them for FFR but didn't know if the front supports were strong enough.

Well from the last post it is proven it holds up. Myself I just did the frame mods and got all the weld cleaned up pryor to powdercoating. If I was going to do the suspension on the rotisserie I would atleast attach the legs together like Convincor did in the above picture.

Andy,
They are just some jigs I made to hold the frame at ride height while I was assembling it. Kept the wheels out of the way. I also used jack stands when the ride height didn't make a difference.

Mike, I am sure someone soon will take you up on your offer. Mike you are very generous to offer your equipment that took a lot of money and skills to make and then all you ask is to pass it along to someone else that is building a Cobra. That's what I plan to do with the body buck, the inverted body buck, door stand and rear axle stand that you gave to me about a year and a half ago. Thanks again!

If someone isn't already lined up to get them, I'll see if my Dad will pick 'em up for me.
He lives on Merritt Island.

TTT,
The stands are still available, It didn't work out for the person that requested them so any other takers?
