I am thinking about tipping the frame up
on its side so that I do not get POR15
on my face.. Has anyone alse tried this?
Will the frame stand on its side by it self,
or should I prepare some braces... Since
my 120 lb wife and I were able to carry this
out to the drive way with no problem, I figure
standing it up should be easy..

It's been done, and without braces.

Hey Dan, I rolled/lifted mine with my engine lift and then put 2/x4'a under the appropriate locations on the floor to keep it steady. I left the hoist attached for safety purposes. Made tilting a one man job.
The big platform is what I normally have my body buck sitting on so I can roll it around my driveway.

As long as your garage/driveway is flat, just test it for stability before working on the frame. Tipped mine on its side and used 2 X 4's as an added brace when doing some weld grinding on mine. Would not want to hear of a frame falling on you, that may hurt!!! :eek:

I lifted mine with the engine hoist on one end and a ceiling rafter on the other end and then was able to rotate it.
